Take on Run Frimley on 5 May 2024. With an amazing atmosphere and various race distances, this is the perfect event for runners of all ages and abilities!

**Online registration closes on Thursday 2nd May at midday and the deadline for race packs to be posted out is Thursday 18th April at midday, entries after this date will need to collect their race packs on the day.**

About the Event

We are delighted to welcome the return of the hugely popular Run Frimley on Sunday 5th May 2024. The event has always attracted a strong community following with over 1,000 runners taking part year on year. Following the success of 2023, the event is comprised of a closed Road 5K and 10K race (featuring chip timing for all participants) to improve your overall running experience and safety, as well as our 1 mile ‘colourful’ family fun run. Our challenging hilly, yet consistent running surfaced routes will also have dedicated cheer points to help push you along and give you that added boost you may need along the way.

Routes coming soon…

NEW to 2024! We are excited to announce the launch of The Lenovo Village, with an amazing range of stalls, there really is something for everyone. To keep the little one’s entertained, there will be face painters, games, activities, performers and more. The whole event will also be complimented with music, plenty of stalls to browse around and many delicious caterers to enjoy. All carefully handpicked to ensure our guests enjoy their time at the event.

Our Fun Run

The course will stay within the grounds of the event village which means everyone can watch and cheer loudly to all those taking part. What is even more exciting is that we are making this event super colourful and will need your help too! They’ll be powdered paint and bubbles for all the runners to enjoy and embrace as you run together. Where we need your help is to add even more colour. We want to see the wackiest, craziest, and the most colourful runners we have ever seen!

As we want this to be the whole family taking part together, we are also giving free entry to the fun run to anyone who takes part in either the 10k or 5k race. The 10k and 5k race will start and finish before the start of the fun run, just so we don’t add any tired legs to the main event, so really, you have no excuse! Please note, there will be a limited number of medals available for this route. So, bring the colour, bring the laughter and most of all, bring the fun!

Fundraise to help us care for more patients like Vincenzo…

In December 2022 Brooke’s Nephew Vincenzo was born earlier than expected: “I cannot begin to imagine myself what the days, weeks and months ahead would have been like, but what I do know, is, the Neonatal Unit at Frimley Hospital supported Claudia, Sam and little Vincenzo on a road to recovery, allowing them to finally take their little soldier home. In honour of the amazing care and support they gave to those close to my heart I felt honoured to run and give back raising £2610 for the Neonatal Unit that cared for Vincenzo” – Brooke
