As spring comes around and the weather gets warmer, running season has arrived. And the INEOS Go Run For Fun schools run event tour is kicking off for another year, bigger and better than ever.
Look out for events in schools around your area, many of which will be asking once more for the assistance of INEOS and local volunteers to marshal and cheer the children around their 2km runs. This year's tour will take place in the same international locations as previous years, with participation numbers still growing, and will feature new events in Tavaux, France (24th May) and Stavanger in Norway (5th September).
Some of the events this year will have record numbers of participants. In France, the INEOS GO Run For Fun Sarralbe event on 28th May, will have over 4,000 children running, while there will be over 3,000 children at Lavera's October event and 2,000 children at both Lillo and Feluy's Belgian events in June and September.
On 20th June, the annual flagship event will be held at London's Battersea Park, where over 4,000 children from across the capital and further afield will take on a fun run course - and attempt to set a warm-up dance world record. A few weeks before, the GO Run For Fun team in Italy will have celebrated the 300,000th participant at an event in Rosignano.
Amidst this continuing success, the charity is next looking to increase the reach of participation by trialling an "Event in a Box" programme, allowing schools to host their own GO Run For Fun runs. INEOS GO Run For Fun has also partnered with the Solomon Trail Running Festival to pioneer youth trail runs across the UK.
