On the Day

Getting there

The Fun Run starts and finishes on the playing field of Greenfields Junior School. There are two entrances to the playing fields:

  1. Take the gate in the middle of the school car park (NB - to the right of the one to the tennis court)
  2. Walk as if going into Hartley Wintney Football Club until the field appears on the right

There is free and plentiful parking in the school car park and surrounding roads.

Greenfields Junior School, Green Lane, Hartley Wintney, Hook, Hampshire RG27 8DQ

Timings for the day

The Fun Run begins at 9am and finishes at midday.

If you are entering on the day, please register 30 minutes before the start of your run at the registration tent.

Runners should assemble near the ‘Start’ flag in the middle of the field ten minutes before their run. A warm up for each run will be led by one of the Super Hero organisers . We would love as many people as possible to come well before the start of their run, so bring your flags and cheer on all the runners.

Toilets are available in the Scout hut. Advice and first aid will be provided by St John’s Ambulance. A photographer will be taking pictures to put on our website and to send to local newspapers.
