Have your say

The date of this year’s Big Fun Run in Rother Valley Country Park has been announced.

The 5K charity fun run event will this year be held on August 16 from 11am.

The run is one of more than a dozen taking place all over the country and is aimed at all members of the family with a focus on fun and charity fundraising.

Big Fun Run event director, Neil Kilgour said: “Tens of thousands of people take part in Big Fun Run every year, it attracts people of all shapes, sizes and ages.

“No event is timed - it is all about having fun and raising funds for a charity close to your heart.

“It is a great event for all the family and it is not unusual to see grandma, mum and daughter all lining up together at the startline.

“We also have many people taking part in fancy dress to add to the feel good atmosphere.”

Entry is free for children under the age of five. Early bird and charity entries are available for both adults and concessions.
