Shelford Fun Run 2023 raises £5,000

… and was a sell out!

2023 has been our biggest (and hottest!) Shelford Fun Run to date, raising an amazing £5,000 for our two charities!

So many people commented on the wonderful atmosphere and we were delighted to hear that some kind residents put out sprinklers to help our hot runners cool off –  a lovely touch!

“…all done with great enthusiasm…all the volunteers did a wonderful job in setting up the [race] village and ensuring all the runners had a great experience. Very well done to everyone this morning.”   – Race Adjudicator

New this year, the Super Sensory 1k by Power2Inspire went down really well and we are hoping to continue to make our event as inclusive as possible going forward!

Many thanks also to Cara Coffee for opening and donating all proceeds from that morning.   Funds raised from the day will be split equally between our two host charities: Great Shelford Playscape, for the mini skate park phase of the masterplan project, and CamRARE for their Unique Feet community group supporting families with a child with a rare condition.

We want to send a massive THANK YOU to all our amazing volunteers who help set up and marshal the course and to our wonderful sponsors who cover the costs of putting on an official closed roads race ((scroll down to find out more about them) – we couldn’t do this without you all!
