Twyford Charity Family Fun Run, 2019

We're delighted to be back at our original venue, The Piggott School, for this year's Charity Family Fun Run. In addition to our ever popular toddler, infant and junior school races, we're introducing a new, chip timed 5km race for those aged 11+. We're also making every effort to ensure that this year's fun run is as green as possible and have a brand new fastest street competition (see below for details). The Twyford Together Fun Run is organised by Barnes Fitness in association with Twyford Together and sponsored by Mullie Ltd. The 5k is sponsored by Castle Royle.

When and where is it?

Alongside individual winners, we’ll also be giving your street the chance to be crowned the champion! Chip timing will allow us to collect race times for everyone registered to a particular street in our new 5k race. The street with the fastest cumulative time for three runners wins a £50 voucher for Binghams Brewery. It’s the ultimate neighbourhood accolade!
