A fun run is a fantastic way to get the whole family involved when it comes to raising money for charity and organising one isn’t as hard as you think! Fun Runs can be anything from obstacle courses to fancy-dress themed races and even three-legged runs! First things first, you need to think of your theme – whether that’s runners in pyjamas to a Halloween spectacular. After you’ve thought about the theme and cause behind your run, you should decide how long the run is going to be. Distance-wise, a 5k is a great choice as it gives experienced runners the chance to challenge their personal bests and also allows for children and beginners to also complete the course. If you want your fun run to be a little more fitness orientated, you can always give a 5k and 10k option, giving runners the chance to choose exactly what race they want to enter, which potentially increases the number of entrants and therefore more donations! We would love it if you would consider organising a fun run for our fantastic charity.
