We have been contacted with a very interesting event in the local area and wanted to make you aware….

The South Shields Junior Fun Run 2016 is a monthly fun run catered for children of all ages at South Shields seafront.

The aim of the fun run is to get more children active in running in South Shields by providing a regular run in a fun and friendly environment.

We hope that all participants will enjoy the run and help them to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. The Fun Run features 6 runs from April through to September. All children will receive a medal and certificate at the end of the series in September.

** How far is the run? **
The route is approximately 1.5 miles. Marshalls will be on the route to direct the runners. The children don’t need to be able to run the whole way. We understand that children like to take little rests so a mixture of walking, jogging and running is recommended. It’s all about having fun.

** What are the age guidelines? **
8-16 years (under 8’s must run with a parent or guardian)

** When is it? **
All runs will start at 10.15am. Registration will be at 9.45am in Minchellas.
The provisional dates are….

1. Saturday 16th April

2. Saturday 21st May

3. Saturday 18th June

4. Saturday 16th July
