If you don’t fancy either the 5km or 10km distance, the Family Fun Run is a brilliant opportunity to get active with the whole family and enjoy a short (less than 1 mile), fun and lively run which takes you on two short laps in the town centre.

Fancy Dress

As part of the day’s Alice in Wonderland activities which will celebrate 150 years since the publication of Lewis Carroll’s famous book, we’re also encouraging as many participants as possible to take part in the race with their own Alice in Wonderland fancy dress outfits.

We will be awarding a prize for the best fancy dress on the day, so raid that fancy dress bag and see if you can win!

Entry into the Family Fun Run is just £5 per person with a family ticket also available.
