Put the Fun in Run – Thrussington Fun Run Is Back!

Saturday 9 March at 2pm
Last year Thrussington Fun Run saw over 300 people of all ages enter its race – taking runners across country, through ditches and over haybales! It raised over £2,000 for two charities: Thrussington School and Jac Bach – a children’s charity supporting children with life changing illnesses.
This year the fun run is again supporting these charities. We are therefore very grateful to our main sponsors: Charles Bentley & Son Limited, Raylec Electrical Limited, Bentons Estate Agents and also for the use of the field by kind permission of The Rudkin Family. This means that all money raised will go to our worthy causes.
Thrussington Fun Run has proved a very popular event. It is run over 5 races, first race at 2pm and is open to all ages. For more information and entry form see our website www.thrussingtonfunrun.co.uk
Race 1 – pre-school – school year 2
Race 2 – school year 3 and 4
Race 3 – school year 5 and 6
Race 4 – school year 7 – 17 years of age
Race 5 – adults and VET 50+
Children school year 6 and under run one lap of the three-quarters of a mile course. School year 7 up to adults two laps of the three-quarter miles course (1 ½ miles).  Everyone who completes the course receives a medal and post race treats. Hot and cold refreshments will be available in the village hall prior to the prize giving. Affiliated (those who belong to a club) and unaffiliated trophies for each race.
Don’t be fooled serious runners this is not too easy for you, it’s very fast and furious, but it is great fun. In race four and five there is also a £10 cash prize for the fastest runner who beats the course record of 9 mins and 22 seconds… Now there’s a challenge!
If you are new to running or an old hand; very young or very old; give it a go and join the fun as an individual or enter your family as a team or round up friends from school and go for the school team trophy also perhaps use the event to get sponsorship for your runners and raise some funds for your club or school. Entry costs £5 per person and close at 7pm on Wednesday 6th March.
What are you waiting for – get your trainers out!
