Registration for 2021 is now open!


We may not be able to accept on the day entries this year (it depends on social distancing guidelines at the time) so we strongly recommend registering in advance.

This year we are also going to continue the virtual race option for those unable to attend in person. You can register through the same link above. The virtual 5ks should be completed between 20th July and 20th September.

The new inclusive playscape is now currently under construction (yippee!), so this year, funds raised by the #ShelfordFunRun will go towards the wheelscape (skating area) phase of the Shelford Playscape masterplan.

We could not run this event without the generous support of our fabulous sponsors, so a huge thanks go to: s Bidwells, Gymbos, Zara, David Reed Homes, Davies Solicitors, Day Accountants, Relief Chiropractic and AngliEar Hearing & Tinnitus Solutions
