The Great Mini Run events are some of the most crowd-pleasing activities to watch in the Great Run calendar and are a great way to get the younger generation interested in running.
Each child can have an adult to accompany them throughout the course to give them a helping hand, so it’s a great day for the whole family.
All Mini runners will receive a running t-shirt, a finisher’s pack filled with goodies, and that well-deserved medal after they cross the finish line.
The Great Mini Run is proud to be part of the GO Run For Fun (GRFF) campaign, sponsored by INEOS, which inspires children to be more active through well-organised short distance running events.
Since the campaign began in 2013 GRFF has seen over 45,000 children take part in the short distance running events organised as part of the campaign; that’s almost half way to their target of 100,000 by 2016. GRFF also try to educate, excite and engage with children through their schools and are working towards educating our younger generation about how important it is to have a healthy lifestyle.
The GRFF team travel all over the UK to host these events. Whether it is a school, athletics club or local park they are all FREE and open to ages between 5-11 years old. In 2015 the campaign will see a return visit to Europe and also launch events in Texas, USA.
