"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.
There is a choice of two courses, 3.7 miles or 6.5 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.
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.
