Great Cumbrian Family Fun Runs

This run is strictly for fun and it’s all about relaxed exercise, accomplishing personal goals, raising money for a worthwhile cause, and having a laugh in the process. No pressure, no sweat – just some easy moves and lots of laughs. The run is suitable for all the family.

It isn’t about Olympic level athletes aiming for a record time. It’s about mums with prams, dads with toddlers, groups running together, fancy dress, kid’s getting active but most importantly raising money for a well-deserved local cause of your choice.
