Count Every Second Until The Event.
Come and enjoy a
The Quendon & Rickling RunFest is back for 2021 with a choice of 10k & 5k trail run, and an all new 1k fun run for younger participants. The event has chip timing, bespoke medals and trophies, km markers, and is fully marshalled, so you just need to focus on the running. 2019 saw the first bringing together of the Fun Run & Family Festival which was a great success and one that we will be building on for 2021.
Stay and enjoy the
Family Festival Fun
2019 saw the running the school Summer Fete alongside the fun runs and by all accounts it was a success so we shall be building on that idea for 2020. Obviously things have changed in light of the Covid-19 situation, so the offering this year will be slightly different. The focus will be on a ‘FitFest’ where we will have small covid-safe activities to get involved with such as yoga classes, mini boot camps, stretching workshops, sports skills test, ((Bounce)) classes, and so on. There will still be food, drinks, ice creams, and of course the pub will be on hand, so there is every reason to make a day of it.
Rickling Green, Essex CB11. - 5 miles between Bishop's Stortford & Saffron Walden. Plenty of Parking
In accordance with Covid-safe practices we will be staggering the start over the course of the morning. Races will start with the fun run from 9.30am, with the 5k and 10k setting off in small waves from 10am onwards.
We will be posting out all of the race numbers this year, or you can collect them from the school if that's easier. There will be no on the day entry.
2019 Event Reviews
We have an average of 4.6 out of 5 from our reviews on FindaRace!
``I really enjoyed the 1k run and I am now going to run 5k with my mum next year! Thank you for organising the event.`` Kully - June 2019
``The race was well organised and flowed smoothly. It was a challenging course due to the undulating route (added to that it was also a hot day). I will be back next year!`` Harry - June 2019
``I've done this run a couple of times now - not the largest, (which is a plus for me), but one of the friendliest! Its probably not for you if you are looking to beat your PB, but is for you if looking for a lovely run across varied terrain.`` Mark - June 2019

Whats it all for
Rickling Primary School
The Quendon and Rickling RunFest was established in 2015 by the Friends of Rickling School (PTA) to create a fun event for children and adults whilst raising much needed funds for the Rickling C of E Primary School.
100% of the proceeds from the event will be used to support school projects which will improve facilities and the learning environment for pupils. Your support is greatly appreciated and we hope you enjoy the race!
