On Sunday, June 30th 2019 we held our fifth annual Family Fun Run as part of the Risborough Festival.
Over sixty runners joined in for what was a really fun morning. The weather on Saturday was a really hot (for us!) 30c, and we were worried about the conditions being too hot for our fun run on Sunday. However, we shouldn't have worried - it couldn't have been better - sunny spells, 15c and, importantly, dry.
The 1k run started at 9am, and the 5k commenced at 9:15. The event was further enhanced by an aquathlon taking place at the same time in Risborough Springs, with the athletes joining our course for their run leg.
Thanks to our sponsors, this event was free, and there were medals and sweets for all kids and prizes for the top adult finishers (with special thanks to Advanced Sports Massage and Louise's Foot Clinic for their vouchers)
A huge thanks to our team of volunteers who do so much to make the run a success. We would also like to thank PPL PRS for granting us a free license to play music at the event, and PRTC for making us part of the Risborough Festival 2019.
This event has been supported by the PPL PRS charity and community discount scheme. PPL PRS licenses the use of copyright music across the UK, giving businesses and organisations the permission they need to play the music they want. TheMusicLicence ensures that music creators are fairly rewarded with royalties so they can keep making music - and mean that we’re able to support music at events like this.
