"Fitness for Families"
Buggy Running Events are aimed at getting kids outdoors whilst parents can keep fit...therefore allowing everyone to be more active together.
By teaming up with the Forestry Commission, Buggy Running Events are being held in forests that are already family friendly. With ample parking, a café and adventure playgrounds, a great family day out can be planned alongside the running event.
These events are unique as they are for people wanting to walk, jog or run with a child in a buggy or wheelchair and are on carefully designed, off-road and traffic-free courses.
The first Buggy Running Event will be held at High Lodge, Thetford Forest which provides ample parking, visitors centre, café, adventure playgrounds, Go Ape and several mountain bike trails so a great day out can be planned alongside the event.
Buggy Running Events are unique, as they for anybody taking part with a child in a buggy or a wheelchair and are on carefully designed, off-road and traffic-free courses.
The 3 mile course will be using the major tracks in the forest so any type of buggy would be suitable although please take care and be considerate to other forest users. There will be a nappy changing tent around 1.5 miles where your time will be paused and there will always be a helper in this tent to provide assistance if needed.
A medal will be presented to each runner and their buggy passenger (or two if in a double buggy!).
Prizes for the 1st male and female in each category (buggy and wheelchair).
