A Fun Run for all to Raise Funds for the Community Library

After a successful first year, Walton Community Library is excited to be putting on its second fundraising run for the entire family. Taking part at the beautiful Walton Colliery Nature Reserve, runners and walkers (with or without dogs) can enjoy a scenic route while either chasing a new PB or just wanting a leisurely stroll. There's even a 1/4 mile fun run for the kiddos! All (human) participants will receive a Zero-Waste Wooden Medal to commemorate their participation in this event, all while raising funds for a worthwhile cause. 5K Canine Race start time is 0900 5K Race start time is 0930 Children's Fun Run Starts at 1030 Entry on the day is available starting at 0730. Cash only, please! The advertised prices are only available until 29 February 2024. From 1 March 2024, the prices will be £15.00 for the 5K and £5.00 for the Children's Fun Run. *Please note - the children's 1/4 mile Fun Run has a minimum age of 2 and a maximum age of 10. As it is a short, straight course, guardians do not have to do the run with their children but must be present at all times.
