The Twyford Together 5k and Fun Run, organised by Barnes Fitness, has become one of the villages’ best-loved, annual events. It’s a chance to get active for a good cause, run with your family and neighbours and perhaps be crowned ‘Fastest Street in Twyford’… the ultimate accolade!
Due to COVID19, we are unable as yet to confirm the date for this year’s event.
There are four races, split according to school year groups (pre-school toddle (100m), reception and years 1 & 2 (1km), years 3 & 4 (1km), years 5 & 6 (2km) as well as a chip-timed, 5K for those aged 11+.
Last year we introduced a brand new, fastest street competition to the Twyford Together 5K and Fun Run. Chip timing allows us to collect race times for individual streets in our 5K race. The street with the fastest cumulative time for three runners wins! So, get training with your neighbours if you want to beat last year’s winners, Springfield Park! It’s the ultimate accolade!
Last year we had some fabulous prizes kindly donated by Castle Royle, Decathlon, Costa Coffee and The Duke of Wellington . There were also wonderful wooden medals designed by Julian Clark Creative and Design for the 5K race.
In 2019 we had a selection of stalls with an eco, seasonal and healthy theme. These included a smoothie making bike, pumpkin racing, golf putting, eco refill shop, healthy baked nibbles and craft.
