"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, Go Ape and adventure playgrounds, a great family day out can be planned alongside the running event at High Lodge, Thetford Forest.
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. If you're finding that your children have outgrown the buggy, then they are more than welcome to run next to you.
Choice of two courses, 3 miles or 6 miles with the longer distance being 2 laps. We will be using the major tracks in the forest so any type of buggy would be okay although please take care and be considerate to other forest users. There will be a nappy changing tent at around 1.5 miles where your time will be paused and we will endeavour to have a helper available 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!) along with a certificate and sticker set.
Prizes for the 1st male and female on each course.
Running Buggy Demonstration and Free Hire
Next to Oak Lodge will be the full range of running buggies that we currently stock with advice available on choosing the right one for you.
If you would like to try one out on the course then please email email@example.com with your choice of running buggy and expected start time (hover over the image below for the buggy name).
We are offering an event discount of 10% off the retail price if you decide to purchase the buggy on the day.
