The Twyford Together Charity 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! The event is sponsored by Castle Royle.
This year’s event is taking place on Sunday 10 October at The Piggott School.
Online entry will be up and running shortly so watch this space!
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+.
In 2019, we introduced a brand new, fastest street competition to the Twyford Together Charity 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 our 2019 winners, Springfield Park!
The Twyford Together Charity 5K and Fun Run supports Twyford Charities Together. The group was formed in 2011 to give local charities, often lacking their own fundraising team, a helping hand.
At our last fun run, 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.
