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!
