Youngsters from York get ready to run for charity!

Youngsters from York get ready to run for charity!

Hundreds of big-hearted youngsters will hit the streets of York in August to take on a free fun run challenge in aid of charity.

They will be taking part in the annual Arena Group York Mini and Junior Run, which is organised by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All. The event is for children of all abilities, aged 3-14 years.

The mini and junior run is one of the biggest races of its kind in the region and entry is free. York is just one of 4 locations this year, to find out more about events in Leeds, Sheffield and Lincoln, click here.

This year’s York runs will be held at 11.45am on Sunday August 2nd. There are two distances – 2.5km for youngsters aged 9-14 and 1.5km for children aged 3-8 – with both routes finishing on Knavesmire Road near the racecourse. (Mini run participants must be accompanied around the route by an adult.)

Children taking part are encouraged to raise a small amount of money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal or another charity of their choice but especially to support the official partner charity. This year that is The Family Fund, a UK-wide charity based in York, which for 40 years has been giving grants to low-income families raising a disabled or seriously ill child aged 17 and under.

Family Fund Chief Executive Cheryl Ward said “We are delighted to have been selected as Jane Tomlinson’s charity partner for these runs and look forward to raising money to help even more families.”

Adrian Fitzpatrick, managing director of Arena Group said: “We are proud to be supporting the York Mini and Junior Run for the seventh year. The event has become a popular fixture in the sporting calendar for thousands of children and families. It’s a great family day out and supports a very worthy local cause.”

Mini and Junior Run event lead Keith Taylor said: “The mini and junior runs are a brilliant way for kids to get actively involved on 10K day and enjoy the thrill of being cheered on by crowds of spectators. Both runs attract youngsters of all abilities and all those who take part should be very proud that local good causes benefit thanks to their efforts.”
