7 Sleeps to go!

With only 7 sleeps to go, we are getting very excited about the first ever Plimmerton FunRun!

Parking will not be available in the school or on School Road for the event, however there are no road closures for this event so you are free to park nearby for free.

Kids Run

FYI

For children entering the 2K kids run, parents/caregivers who would like to are more than welcome to run alongside their child at no extra charge. For children entering the 5k (or even the 10k!) for those children under 10 years old, parents are required to purchase a ticket to run with their child for safety reasons.
