Following the 2017 gap year, The Festival Run is intending to return in 2018 for a fifth time.
For those who don’t know, this takes place in October, and consists of 2k, 5k and 10k runs held on the Festival site. In 2016 it attracted around 800 runners from a wide area and raised £11,000 for The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, and The Alzheimer’s Society.
It is run by an independent organising committee, which is currently a bit depleted but seeks new volunteers to assist. No previous experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and a willingness to support the effort to continue this highly successful village event. The committee meets around once a month until the event in October, duties are not difficult or overly time consuming. Any volunteers are welcome to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
