Checkendon Run

Checkendon run is a one of our larger fundraising events, which is held once a year. We rely on the the help and support of our families, committee and local community for this event to be able to run. If you feel you can volunteer, please let us know.

Checkendon Run 2019 took place on June 16th at
Hammonds Farm, Checkendon RG8 0SR from 10.00am
We had a wonderful morning. Over 70 runners tackled the 5 and 10km courses and were very complimentary about the redesigned route, the signage,marshalling and timing system, supplied by Rogue Racer.
50 children took part in the races in the field, all great fun; the bouncy castle bounced, the home made cakes and the hot dogs from Blue Tin Produce were all eaten with gusto, though mostly after the running!

On Sunday morning, 19 June, the Checkendon Run is back, having been cancelled
the last two years because of the pandemic. Checkendon Run was set up as a
fundraising event for Checkendon Preschool by volunteers and is now in its fifth year
with lots of race options whether you are a casual jogger or a serious runner. There
will be chip timed 10k and 5k races on beautiful quiet lanes and trails, a one mile for
primary school children, and a toddler/preschool 100m dash. All proceeds go to
support the lovely Checkendon Preschool, a registered charity, which needs funding
to continue to provide good facilities and resources for local children. We are still
looking for more sponsors, so if you own a business which would like to help sponsor
the run please get in touch.
Registration is now open on the website
