Event Information

This is a multi-terrain course which is completely traffic free, consisting of 3 distances:

9km - over 16's only

4.5km - open to all but runners aged 7 and below must be accompanied by an adult. Runners aged 8 may run alone due to the traffic-free nature of the course, but parents must take complete responsibility for their child. Newchurch Primary School cannot be held liable should anything occur.

900m - a run for the younger children. Adults may run free of charge with their paying child.

The 900m will begin at 9:15am, with the 4.5km and 9km runs following at approximately 9:30am. We will ensure that all 900m runners have finished before the main event starts meaning that you can run with your child before running in your event.

1Leisure will be there to ensure that everyone has warmed up properly before the run. We can't think of a better way to warm up than our fabulous fitness instructor Lyssa Truman putting us through a little Zumba! Can you?

Refreshments will be available including hot drinks and bacon baps. Further information will be sent out by email to all entrants.

Times are not recorded, but you will be told your finishing time.

Is there any bling? Of course there is!

Completing the run is the real prize, we all know that, but every runner gets a fabulous medal to take home as well as a 1Leisure Goody Bag with a gym bag and water bottle plus a discounted membership offer. Several Island companies have also donated some wonderful prizes. The way these prizes are won goes to further prove that this is an incredible run to come and be part of.

Prizes will be drawn randomly with your running bib number acting as your prize draw entry and all entrants will have an opportunity of winning, whether you've come first, last or anything between!
