On Saturday afternoon (1 June) there will be a running club relay as part of RunFestRun, and England Athletics affiliated clubs and RunTogether Groups are invited to be involved – completely free of charge. The relay will consist of a four leg 1.3k loop, with each club member running a lap. The race will go through the beautiful Bowood House Estate.
As an affiliated club you’ll be given complimentary weekend tickets to get a team together for the event. Clubs can submit more than one team and additional tickets to get a support crowd together are available on request and at the discretion of RunFestRun. Please note that the minimum age for the running club relay is 16. The relay team can be mixed in gender.
To enter a team(s), please contact Sophie Matcham at firstname.lastname@example.org with your club name, names of each runner and how many supporters you’d like to bring.
Complimentary weekend tickets also include:
- Entry into as many Saturday runs as you want (2.5k, 5k, 10k and half marathon)
- Entry into Friday’s ‘Sunset Shuffle’ and Night-Time Neon Run
- Entry into Sunday’s Big Bug Fun Run
- 3 days of live music
- Two nights of camping (excludes caravan or camper passes)
- A programme of inspiring talks from sporting legends and everyday heroes
- A range of great content on the Festival Site

Running routes range from a 2.5k up to a half marathon, and there’s a packed timetable of festival content to get involved with too – from sunset yoga to stand up paddle boarding, butterfly walks to wild swimming and meditation to kids’ races, the whole family is covered.
The music line-up includes Olly Murs, Razorlight, Reef, Faithless DJ set and The Coral, and the weekend will also host top talent from great sporting speakers to food fanatics, mindfulness mentors and awesome authors. The line-up includes Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram, Colin Jackson, Fearne Cotton, Melissa Hemsley and Christine Ohuruogu to name but a few.
