This is a 5K trail run suitable for all ages and abilities, plus a shorter fun run for the little'uns (a different medal for finishers of each run). Prizes for the best fiesta fancy dress!!

We will be based at the beautiful Lynford Arboretum, with runner registration from 3pm, and the first run kicking off at 4pm (when it should be a little cooler).

We'll supply water, soft drinks and snacks, but please being your own sandwiches, salads etc. There'll be gazebos for shade, tables for food and drink, and games, e.g. swingball. Tickets: 5K Run £7.50, Fun Run (under 11s only) £4.00. Free parking. Spectators welcome, but please bring your own food, drinks and snacks. Dogs are not allowed to take part in the runs, but are welcome to join the spectators as long as kept on a short lead (there will be excited children about!). There are places nearby to give dogs a run.

This is a summer celebration to make the most of our forest and to introduce some of you to trail running. There's no cut off time, so no pressure - you can walk round if you wish. We will issue running numbers, and clock your times with our trusty stopwatches.

Please note: there are no public toilets at the Arboretum.

Any "profit" will be donated to local children's organisations.
