Sunday 25th June 2017 *This Sunday*
The Super Fun Run is not a race! It isn't about Olympic level athletes running in record times, it's all about having a great time with your family, friends and fellow runners while getting some easy exercise and supporting a great cause! It is taking place at the beautiful Raphael Park in Gidea Park, Romford on Sunday 25th June 2017.
The whole family can walk, run or skip this achievable 5k route, so sign up now with your mum, dad, brother, sister, gran, grandpa and best friends!

Inflatables will be free for all children participating in the Super Fun Run and additional tickets will be available for £4.50 (reduced from £5) from the registration tent.
With special thanks to:
Did you know?
Recent research revealed that three in five parents surveyed ended up in debt as a result of a child's cancer diagnosis – with one in six borrowing more than £5,000. The average extra spend of £600 per month is close to a third of the average UK monthly income*. This puts a massive financial strain on families, who also have to take time off work to care for their sick child during treatment, which can often last several years.
Our family support team are constantly inundated with requests for financial support from families who find themselves in this all too common situation, so the funds you raise, will be put towards our Care Grants project to help these families.
Participants will be allocated start times in advance. The first wave will be at 10am.

Can I turn up on the day and take part?
We only have a limited number of places, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If there are still places available on the day, you will be able to register at the registration tent. However, we do anticipate that all places will be allocated in advance.
Can I come along for the fun day without taking part in the fun run?
Yes. There will be lots of stalls and inflatables, as well a bar for adults. A wristband for unlimited use of the inflatables is £4.50 (reduced from £5). This is free for those taking part in the Superhero Fun Run.

Fancy dress is strongly encouraged, but not compulsory. You can wear whatever you like. Fancy dress, sports wear or just something comfy. You should definitely wear comfortable footwear though, ideally trainers.
