After its success last year the Acomb Fun Run is returning and young people are being urged to book their place ahead of the event, which takes place on Sunday 27 May.

Hosted by Carr Infants and Junior School in partnership with the council’s YorWellbeing service, this is a free event consisting of:

  • A 2km Junior Individual run around the perimeter of the enclosed school fields for 4-14 year olds. A ticket will be required for each runner. All finishers will receive a medal.
  • A 1km Fun Run for all around the perimeter of the enclosed school fields in which parents, grandparents and any family members of all ages are encouraged to join. Parents and family members wishing to take part in the fun run for all please select a ticket per individual for this event. All finishers will receive a certificate.

As well as the two events there will be an activity village with the energise climbing wall and information stalls, including HealthWatch and York City FC foundation.

Councillor Nigel Ayre, executive member for leisure, culture and tourism said: “This fun run is something for all the family to enjoy. This promises to be a great event hoping to inspire people to be active in a fun and family friendly environment.

“I would encourage anyone interested to book their place.”
