Our award winning junior races continue to grow every year and the event is a great day out for the whole family.
Introduce your children to exercise with our Junior 1k and 3k fun runs. The 1k is open to under 11’s and 3k to 9-14yrs. Whether you are a Junior competitive runner or are just looking for a fun family day out, our Junior races are open for all abilities. With Mascots and supportive Stewards to encourage participants, our Junior races have a fun, friendly atmosphere ensuring everyone has a great time – and parents are allowed to run with their little ones too!
Our junior races are so popular, we were voted the Best Child-Friendly Event in the UK in The 2017 UK Running Awards!
The Junior 1k is the perfect introduction to running for your little ones – a fun, no pressure environment, and a distance that’s achievable and enjoyable.
For the 9-14 age group and at 3k in distance, this is a great race for younger runners. It offers a challenge in a mixed field and is a great race for building up to longer distances, but most importantly its fun!
