Welcome to the Shelford Fun Run !

The Shelford Fun Run will return on Sunday 15th September 2019.

The purpose of the event is to raise money for local causes and charities. The 5km course runs through the streets of Shelford and, with the roads closed for the duration of the event, it is a rare opportunity to really enjoy the sights and sounds of a beautiful English village. The course has been accurately measured and certified to be 5k.

For non-serious runners the event is perfect. You can walk or jog at your own pace and savour the atmosphere. For serious runners it’s a great chance to register a Personal Best – the course is very flat and fast.

Whatever your reason for running, you will enjoy a great day out and support worthy local charities.

Shelford Fun Run is raising funds for Great Shelford Playscape.

Great Shelford Playscape is a charity set up to transform the play provision across Great Shelford village recreation ground.

We want to create an inspiring and playful landscape, a playscape, to benefit the whole community and leave a wonderful legacy for future generations. The ambitious scheme would address the playground area, the skate ramp and a feature leading to (and including) the copse by the river – effectively considering the whole of the recreation ground.

Plans include:

  • Inclusive facilities for all ages and abilities such as double width slide, hammocks, accessible roundabout and in-wheel-chair access to water trough.
  • Integrated and improved skate park.
  • New basketball and football area with practice goal and hoop
  • It seems the village has a soft spot for the red horse, we will find a new home for him on the Rec!
