Don't Forget Your Toothbrush!

Chris Evans' RunFestRun is a runners' dream mini break...

This summer, you can forget queuing at check-in desks and forking out for uncomfortable 4-hour transfers (not to mention COVID passports) because rural Hampshire is where it’s at. Simply pack up your best camping gear and head south, because the picturesque home county is getting ready to play host to what is being billed as ‘the best running party in Britain’!

Many of you will have heard of Car Fest - DJ Chris Evans’ family-friendly festival which has raised millions for UK children’s charities over the last nine years. Well this year RunFestRun will be taking place alongside CarFest on 27-29 August 2021 at Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire. 

Festival-goers can join in for the day, weekend or even camp and whether you’re a novice runner or a multi-marathon veteran there is the option to take part in over ten races from 2.5km to half marathon as well as a host of exclusive runs and routes across three packed days of glorious running. The runs have been designed by Steve Cram CBE and each ticket includes entry to all distances as well as access to all onsite activities, workshops and the shopping village.

Run with and hear from sporting legends including Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram, Colin Jackson, Sally Gunnell, Jo Pavey plus other famous faces. And the fun doesn't stop when the running stops because during the evening, you can join CarFest to party to live music from Rick Astley, All Saints, James Blunt, James Bay, McFly, Texas and more.

RunFestRun is the brainchild of broadcaster and presenter Chris Evans. Keen runner and multi-marathoner Chris set out to find a way to bottle the elation you feel at completing a challenge and pour it all into a weekend of celebration filled with running, partying and families making memories... and so RunFestRun was born, ticking all of those boxes and so many more!  

Chris says: "We want people to join us for a jam-packed weekend of running while having a great time outdoors with friends and family. Whether it is your first run or your hundredth, grab your trainers and join us for the nation’s biggest running party.

"Learn from your heroes, be inspired, be star-struck, learn new tips and improve your running with help from experts and passionate runners. Each and every one of them has a special relationship with running and they want to share it with you."
