Calling all local Primary, Infants, Junior School pupils & their parents/families!
HAVE FUN AND BE A PART OF YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY!
Newport and District Running Club [see <newportrunningclub.org.uk>] has its usual very popular Fun Run alongside the Lilleshall Monumental 10K race on April 2nd, and Gnosall Parents are putting on a series of fun runs during the spring and early summer. These Fun Runs are aimed mainly at young runners up to age 14/15 (but especially up to age 11), but are also open to parents / older siblings.
The Lilleshall and Sheriffhales races in 2015 & 2016 were terrifically popular and successful!
The Fun Runs counting towards the NDRC School Shield this year are :
On Sunday 2nd April 2017 (registration at Lilleshall Cricket Club, Church Road, TF10 9HE). The Lilleshall Monumental 10K race starts at 11.00. The Fun Run starts at 10.15. [In addition there will be a ‘Tots and Toddlers’ run, for the under 5s, just before the main 10K race, at about 10.45.]
Gnosall Fun Run on Sunday 14th May 2017 at 3:00 pm.
Gnosall Fun Run on Sunday 11th June 2017 at 3:00pm.
The Gnosall Fun Runs start from the Gnosall Family Sports Club on Forresters Lane, Gnosall ST20 0JF. Registration for the Fun Runs in May and June is at 2.30 at the Sports Club.
At the Lilleshall Fun Run every finisher will receive a colourful draw-string goody bag.
There is a further Gnosall Fun Run on Sunday 3rd September 2017 (time to be advised).
Very exciting: the Gnosall runs will be over the same course, so runners will be able to compare their times/and assess their progress!]
Children of any age may run, with the consent of their parent(s), the parent taking responsibility for their child(ren). A parent or older sibling may accompany a young child on the run.
To ease the queues reduce your waiting time at registration would you please print off the attached entry form and bring it, together with the entry fee to registration on the day. The fee for the Gnosall runs is £2 per child ; for Lilleshall it is £2 per child and accompanying parent / sibling.
PS: PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO RUN IN SCHOOL COLOURS. IT MAKES THE EVENT SUCH A GREAT SPECTACLE, AND IT FOSTERS A SENSE OF EXCITEMENT AND BELONGING!
