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

The festival will be a bit more low key than it has been before for obvious reasons. That said we still have plenty of fun and games for everyone so please do bring the family and friends and make a day of it. We will have the following on offer in the school grounds: - BBQ (from about 8.45am serving breakfast baps), Tea / Coffee / Soft Drinks, Bouncy Castles, Inflatable Target Football, Face painting, Ice Cream Van, and The Cricketers Pub will be on hand - make a booking if you want to stay for lunch!
Rickling Green, Essex CB11. - 5 miles between Bishop's Stortford & Saffron Walden. Plenty of Parking
Races will start with the fun run from 9.50am, with the 5k and 10k setting off from 10.20am onwards.
Race numbers can be collected from HQ on the green. 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!
