Family Fun Run 2020

Click here to enter online. Registration will close at midnight on 20 May.

2020 marks the third year for the East Hoathly Family Fun Run, and we hope to make it the best one yet! As in previous years, we will have a 1km race around the playing field (enabling children to run alone if they wish); a 5km out of the village over fields with beautiful views of the East Sussex countryside and through ancient woodland before finishing back on the playing fields; and, new for 2020, a 10km route, also starting on the playing field, followed by two loops of the fields, woods and village before finishing back on  the playing field.

The course is clearly marked, with marshals stationed along the route to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all runners. The road through the village will also be closed for the duration of the race. A water station is positioned at the 3km mark of the 5km race (so will be passed twice by the 10km runners).  All finishers will receive a medal and certificate, and photos will be available to download for free after the event (please see our Facebook page for photos from last years fabulous event).

On the playing field will be a bouncy castle and refreshments, including bacon sandwiches and homemade cakes, plus tea, coffee and cold drinks.

Please click on the link below to enter. On the day registration is available, but obviously this does get very busy!
