Giving new meaning to fun run
Festivals are evolving. The days of standing in a field, cider in one hand, cigarette in the other, might not be over for everyone but these days, there’s so much more choice when it comes to memorable weekends away.
This is why RunFestRun is creating such a buzz. With the three-day camping festival on sale from 21 March, be sure to put a reminder on your calendar, because tickets are going to fly faster than Usain Bolt. And you’ll see why.
As the title suggests, RunFestRun is a running festival. But there’s so much more to it than that. Taking place at beautiful Bowood House & Gardens in Wiltshire between 31 May – 2 June, it will be one big party of togetherness, with world famous bands and DJs, sumptuous surroundings and stunning running routes, as well as all manner of fi tness classes, inspiring
talks and a run-related shopping village.
So, how can we be so sure you’ll have fun? Well, the person behind RunFestRun knows a thing or two about entertaining: it’s none other than multifaceted star Chris Evans. The beloved, award-winning DJ and presenter has embraced the world of running, which is why he’s throwing his considerable energy and enthusiasm behind RunFestRun.
And he’s not the only inspiring figure who’ll be involved. There will be talks from a range of sporting stars, such as former world champion long-distance runner Paula Radcliffe, ex-110m hurdles world record holder Colin Jackson, and one of the most iconic middle-distance runners of all-time, the legend that is Steve Cram. They’ll also be joined by TV presenter
and author Fearne Cotton, and wellness guru Melissa Hemsley.
Each of the three days also boasts a unique theme: Feelgood Friday, Super Saturday and Sunday Funday. As you can imagine, this promises to be the sort of long weekend you wish could run and run and run (pun absolutely intended).
And, even if you’re not in the same league as Cram, Radcliffe or Jackson, fret not: RunFestRun is aimed at everyone. So if you fancy yourself as a promising middle-distance prodigy, are simply an excitable amateur, or sit happily somewhere in between, it doesn’t matter. RunFestRun is fun, full stop.
