Our mission... simple:
to get kids running!
Running is simple, and kids do it naturally. It’s fun, good for their confidence and great for their health and development. It’s not expensive, and is the basis for so many other sports. If kids catch the bug early enough they tend to stick with it. It gets ingrained and leads to a more generally active and healthy lifestyle.
Our well organised running events encourage the children to prepare themselves well for their challenge, to give it their best on the day and to make their run a memorable achievement.
The GO Run For Fun programme has a very simple aim - to get as many kids between the age of 5 and 10 running as possible, through well organised fun events. Whether it is 1 km or 1 mile does not matter. Since GO Run For Fun kicked off in Summer 2013, we have seen well over 240,000 young runners take part in events spanning the UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, USA and Mexico - and we are still growing!
