This year Run Frimley will be back to its usual time of year, Sunday 1st May.
The event has been running for over 15 years and has always attracted a strong community following with over 1,000 runners taking part year on year. The event is comprised of a 10k and 5k road race (featuring chip timing for all participants) and our annual fun run. There are trophies and prizes for our winners across all the events plus every participant will receive a fantastic medal to proudly wear after they cross the finish line.
Run Frimley is more than just a road race, it’s our biggest annual fundraising event to raise vital funds for your local NHS hospital and our Dementia Appeal.
We are so pleased to say that we have been given permission to use the Cadet Training Centre next to Frimley Park Hospital as our venue for Run Frimley next year. Set in stunning grounds not usually accessible to the general public, Run Frimley will start and set off with a stunning back drop of the training centre set in this hidden gem of Frimley.
This change of the venue means we can introduce a more dynamic event village that will contain stands for food and refreshments, local community businesses and children’s activities. There will be engagement activities with the soldiers on site and a post-race massage area managed by our fantastic NHS physiotherapy team.
Finally, we have also decided to introduce a 5k road race entry option for our runners. We know that a 10k run can be quite daunting and we wanted to make the event as inclusive as possible. A 5k run is a perfect goal for any budding runner we are excited to add this entry option to our supporters.
The day will start with the fun run at 09:30am followed by the 5k and 10k at 10:30am, so you can do both if you want to run with all your family together in the fun run first!
Entry for the 5k and 10k is £20.00 and £10.00 for the Fun Run.
Remember though, you can secure a free entry charity place just by pledging to raise £50.00 prior to the event and get a free running top of your choice. As mentioned, Run Frimley is more than just a road race for us, it’s our biggest annual fundraising event to raise vital funds for your local NHS hospital we would dearly love your support and to be part of Team Frimley.
