We have had great success with this fun race in the past and hope to continue it for the years to come and help charities raise money and awareness.

 

This race gives people young and old the chance to come together as a family and group of friends, get dressed up and stay active at the same time. Young children can decorate bikes or scooters and get involved too. It really is about having fun!!

 

Money can be raised in the way of collections prior to race, donations from businesses sponsoring the chosen charity and group, donations can be made on the day at the merchandise tent and put into the chosen tins and also during the race each organisation can run with a collection tin if they choose and deposit monies into allocated tins after the charity runs is over.
