Mini Marathon 2017
Sunday 8th October 2017 10:30am
There will be a one mile Mini Marathon which will be open to anyone wanting to take part; however it is aimed primarily at children. Accompanying parents, guardians and grandparents are welcome - but please note you need to enter too.
The Mini Marathon will be conducted wholly within The Racecourse, starting at the main race start and finishing at the main race finish. The Mini Marathon is also raising funds for our race charity Claire House Children's Hospice.
Each Mini Marathon participant will be given a souvenir race t shirt and race number, with all finishers receiving a bespoke medal, bottle of water and a treat.
The Mini Marathon entry fee is £4, or £5 including a £1 donation to our race charity.
Entries open online at midday on 1 September 2017.
Adults accompanying/running with their children also need to enter the Mini Marathon.
This is a fun run and not a race with the aim being to involve as many people as possible. With this in mind, everyone is a winner and there are no official timings or prizes.
The route is renowned for being fast and largely flat – more than 70% of our runners achieve PBs!
