Thrussington Fun Run 2022

Like many community events, the pandemic meant Thrussington Fun Run couldn’t go ahead last year. But the race is back on and they’ll be many runners thrilled at the prospect of negotiating the courses undulating terrain, stream crossings and hay bales again on Saturday 12th March from 2pm. In previous years the race has seen in excess of 300 runners of all ages and abilities.
In its 12th year, the race is known, not only for its great course, but also the fantastic atmosphere, bringing the whole community together.
Held over five races, it gives opportunity for those as young as two years, (accompanied by an adult), to those in their twilight years. For some, this may be their first running event. For the more seasoned runner, and those representing running clubs across Leicestershire and beyond, the course will be testing and very challenging.
Younger entrants will complete one lap of the three-quarter mile course, Secondary School students and adults complete two laps. Trophies up for grabs in all races, including School and Family team, Veteran and club. Medals for all finishers and post-race treats.
A welcome brew, pasties and cake can be found at the village hall.
Sponsorship in previous years went towards the costs of the event, meaning in 2020 over £2000 was raised for charity. This year organisers are grateful to sponsors SIX, Ginsters and Mr and Mrs Rudkin for the use of the field. If you or you know of a company who’d like to sponsor the fun run, please contact the Race Secretary via the website. This year the event hopes to raise money for two worthy causes:
• Thrussington Church Save the Tower fund – being considered for ‘the Heritage at Risk’ register, there is an urgent need to raise over £80k to stabilise the tower and replace the heating to make our church safe for the community it serves and prevent decline and closure of a beautiful Grade II listed building.
• Thrussington Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) – enhancing educational opportunities by funding extra-curricular activities and resources.
