Fancy dress positively encouraged!

DUE TO a lack of take-up of the entry forms, the HEDON FUN RUN has regretfully been CANCELLED for this Sunday.


A FUN RUN has been organised by Hedon Town Council and the Haven Arms for Sunday 20th July 2014.

Actually there are a number of runs taking place for all different age groups; primary, secondary, adults and “old timers”.

Rumour has it that the “old timers” category has been specifically set up to encourage councillors and council staff members to take part! 😀

All the action will take place at Far Bank on Draper’s Lane (including the Play Park and Skate Park areas) from 2.00pm.

There is a PRIZE for FIRST PLACE in each category.

runner for funWhether you are interested in a ‘laugh and a jog’ or indeed want to seriously compete to win one of the prizes in each category, you will find something suitable on the day.

And it is a FUN RUN – so runners in Fancy Dress are positively encouraged!

Hedon’s Sgt of the Mace and Town Crier Dave Young will be present as Master of Ceremonies.

Bouncy Castle, Stalls and refreshments will be available on the day via the Haven Arms across the footbridge.

ENTRY FORMS are available at both Hedon Town Hall and the Haven Arms. Entry fees for each race apply – 50p for primary school children, £1 for secondary age, £1.50 for ‘one lap’ adults, £2 for ‘two lap’ adults and £1 for “old timers”. Proceeds go towards the ongoing costs of organising future community events in the town!

The Fun Run is an initiative of Hedon Town Council’s Events Committee which this year has already staged a bus trip to York, a bake-off competition, a Treasure Hunt and a History Walk through Hedon,  with new events being organised all the time!

  2. Hi, really interested in doing something like this, have been wanting to for a while to see if I’d be able to, but was just woundering, how long would the run be? 2k? 5k?
    Thank you for starting a local thing like this
