British Athletics to attend Run Fest Run - join us!

British Athletics have teamed up with RunFestRun – the nation’s big new running party! Created by Chris Evans and Vassos Alexander, for an weekend of epic running, awesome music, inspirational talks, festival fun and camping in Wiltshire’s beautiful Bowood House & Gardens.

British Athletics will be testing your athletic skills this weekend (31st May – 2nd June). Join us at our mini athletics park where you can see how you stand up against the elite. How fast you can run over 30m? What’s your high jump PB? How far you can throw the shot put?

This is what else is to come over the weekend…

Feel Good Friday will kick off the festival with a Sunset Shuffle led by our running celebrities, followed by music from Razorlight and Reef.

Super Saturday offers a range of timed routes from a 2.5k up to a half marathon, and culminates in an incredible party including Ten Tonnes, The Coral, Faithless DJ set and Olly Murs.

Sunday Funday brings the weekend to a close with a themed fun run and mega lunchtime party. Bowood will become Bugwood as you take on the Big Bug Run with special challenges and finish up at The Big Bug Hoe Down with 2 hours of bands, line-dancing and special guests.

The festival plays host to top talent from great sporting speakers to food fanatics, mindfulness mentors and awesome authors. The line-up includes top names including Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram, Colin Jackson, Fearne Cotton, Melissa Hemsley and Christine Ohuruogu to name but a few.

RunFestRun will also feature a shopping village filled with fitness brands and nutritional foods, a fitness tent, lake activities and a kids area to keep the little ones entertained all weekend.

So, whether it’s your first run or your hundredth, grab your trainers and join us.
