Henley-on-thames - July 13, 2019

0900 arrival for 0930 start

Culden-Faw Estate, Henley-on-Thames

MArathon Team Challenge

The Format: 

Teams are formed of between 2 to 6 runners between 4-14 years of age. Runners can undertake either a 1km or 2km lap before handing over to team mates. Teams must choose to run collectively either a Marathon (42km) or a Half-Marathon (21km). Younger runners may fancy a Half-Marathon which equates to c4km each for a team of 6. Older runners may want to take on a Marathon as a team of 3, so running 14km each. This is a unique event and a challenge worthy of sponsorship.

The Glory:

Logo’d race T-shirts will be supplied to every runner. The T-shirt is in lieu of a medal and has the benefit of allowing participants to show off their achievements on a daily basis.

The Fundraising:

The purpose of The Children’s Challenge is to raise money for charity. The minimum sponsorship requirement is £25 per person but given the nature of the challenge it is hoped that the average raised is a multiple of this. Runners are free to select a charity of their choice. After checkout please proceed to the Sponsorship page. Please note, runners that have raised money for the 2019 Exmoor Expedition are not obliged to raise money for the 2019 Cross-Country Relay.

The Price:

The price per runner is £15. Please note however, that runners are free to dictate where £10 of their entry fee goes. There will be 2 options at check out:

  1. £10 of the entry fee can go to a designated sports club such as Henley Hawks or Wargrave Wolves.

  2. £10 of the entry fee can go to the runners school such as Shiplake or Trinity primary school.

The reason for the above is to reward clubs and schools that have helped promote the event and by doing so ultimately helped raise more money for charity.
