Virtual Big Fun Run



All ages

  • 5 km road running


The Big Fun Run is a virtual event which means there is no set date or time to complete your event, you simply pick a date and time that works for you. Once you complete your challenge you can mark the event as complete online and be added to the official finishers list as well as downloading your personalised finishers certificate. You will then receive your medal and amazing finishers pack in the post.


  • Get fit and have fun

    Walk, jog or run whatever distance you choose to complete with your dog, whether that’s 5K or a bit more.

  • Wherever and whenever you like

    Take the opportunity to explore a new area together, whether in your local park, or a footpath you've always wanted to explore and at a time that suits you.

  • Sign up solo or create a team

    Individuals, couples, families, friends or colleagues.

  • In one go or break it down

    Split your chosen distance over a number of days or weeks - you don’t need to do it all in one day.

  • Medal and finishers pack

    You also have the option to fundraise for a charity, knowing that each step you take can help those in need can be a great motivation.
