Fun Runs

Fun Runs, Family Events and Kids Events

We list hundreds of great fun runs in the UK. So whether you’re looking for a fun 5k, one with mud, colour or a family run, we will have one for you.

As the name suggests a fun run is a non competitive and in many cases is designed for children to take part in, though there are also plenty for adults to enjoy too. Because no one is keeping score, these races have a much more relaxed attitude and as such many will have a theme or element to them that makes them very unique compared to usual races.

You may see many fun races where people dress up in costume and run the entire race that way – it’s all part of what makes these runs fun! More recently Colour Runs such as the Wiggle Color Vibe have become very popular amongst first time runners as they offer short distances whilst keeping things relaxed and fun.

Training For Fun Running

Training for a fun running can vary a lot depending on what elements the race has to it – as such you should find out all the info you can well in advance and then tailor your training to what you need to do on the day. As mentioned though many of these races are designed with kids in mind so you may just wish to go down to one and have a great family day out at an event such as the Big Fun Run

Kids Fun Run

These types of events are fantastic for children and a lot of providers offer reduced entry prices for them too. Look out for ones that allow fancy dress, they will always appeal more to children if they can run as their favourite superhero or cartoon character!

Fun Runs for Charity

There are plenty of runs where you can also raise money for a charity, you can use our charity filter in the left search to find charities that support events. They will normally set you a fundraising amount and even give you sponsorship forms to help track any money raised.
