It wouldn’t be fair to leave all the fun to the serious adults – so we have a number of family and junior runs available for the Junior Adventurers. These races can be entered in advance, but entry will be available on the day.
- Bunny Run & Family Run – 2 kms (age limit – 6 years to 11) – this is a single 2 kilometre run on flat pastureland alongside the River Ogmore. Heading over the road from the front of Merthyr Mawr House and around the fields in next to the river. Parents may accompany their youngsters on this race, but note it is aimed as a Junior Race…. you Adults should really be doing the Rabbit Run or The Giant Rabbit! There will prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd, and prizes and goodie bags for all participants of course.
- River Run – 4 kms – (age limit – minimum 12 to maximum of 16 ) – this sees the Junior runner do two laps of the same 2 kilometre run in the Family Run. This is aimed at the slightly older runner, those who are not daunted by the extra distance. Like the Bunny Run there will prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd, and prizes and goodie bags for all participants.
- Toddler Dash – 100 metres – a flat straight course to the finish line from the Old Big Oak Tree for those who might have shone in the school sports day, but have yet to make their mark in Strava or Power Of 10. Mum’s and Dads are of course more than welcome to join in to see their running proteges making their trail running mark. Mementos of the day to be provided to the finishers.
