Mid Sussex Fun Run: The Mid Sussex Fun Run was introduced to our event timetable in 2019! Each Fun Run will be the first event of the day, starting at 9.30am. They are a great opportunity for young children, parents, and families to be involved in the Weekend event. Adults who are looking for a more relaxed and sedate event will find the Fun Runs ideal. Every finisher will receive a medal.
Mid Sussex Mile: The Mid Sussex Mile will be at 10am before each of the main races. The Mile races are aimed at junior runners, with every finisher receiving a medal, with trophies for the top Boys and Girls. Runners receive a timing chip so they can get an exact time and placing. Junior Parkrunners will be eligible for a discount on presentation of their membership card or bar code.
