RUNFESTRUN – GET YOUR RUNNING SHOES ON AROUND THE STUNNING GROUNDS OF LAVERSTOKE PARK BEFORE PARTYING WITH RICK ASTLEY, MCFLY, JAMES BLUNT AND ALL SAINTS AT NIGHT.
RunFestRun proudly sponsored by Volvo are announcing new dates and a new venue for their 2021 event. To guarantee smooth-running with maximum safety, the festival will move to the August Bank Holiday weekend at Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire.
RunFestRun will take place alongside Chris Evans’ CarFest, the family festival that raises millions for UK Children’s Charities.
RunFestRun will operate as originally planned throughout the day, with a fantastic series of runs, designed by the legendary Steve Cram CBE, through the grounds of Laverstoke Park Farm. When not running, visitors will be able to enjoy inspiring talks from running heroes including Paula Radcliffe and Colin Jackson, family activities, fitness workshops, a shopping village featuring great brands, and fabulous street food and drink.
Come evening, RunFestRun visitors will join CarFest to party safely into the night with headline acts including Texas, Rick Astley, McFly, James Blunt, All Saints.
RunFestRun technical director and former British Athlete Steve Cram CBE says:
“Our commitment to make RunFestRun happen has never been greater, especially when running has played such an important part in keeping spirits up through a difficult year. We’ve been itching to get back on the road doing what we love – entertaining our running communities and creating memories through live events. The new dateline enables us to operate at a time whenall restrictions should be lifted giving our visitors the chance to enjoy the weekend feeling safe.’’
The last year has seen a huge surge in people taking up running as a way of exercising and escaping the challenges of lockdown. Running apps such as Strava and Couch to 5k have experienced a phenomenal increase in activity. Running can be a very social experience with running clubs and annual races normally taking place all over the country. But in the last 12 months, running has been more of a solitary sport for most people.
RunFestRun wants to bring runners back together safely and offer a unique opportunity to enjoy and celebrate the sport they all love. The organisers are constantly monitoring government guidelines and working with local authorities to ensure RunFestRun is safe and enjoyable for all.
Tickets go on sale at 8am on Thursday 1st April. Adult day tickets start from £40.
