Children`s Challenge

Local Primary schools, working with Exeter City Community Trust are encouraging  children to be more active and have set the challenge of running a half-marathon over a period of weeks, with the final part of the challenge  to run in the Fun Run in May 2019.

There will be over 300 children completing the final leg of their Marathon journey, many will be running with Parents/Guardians/Run Leaders/Teachers who are welcome to run along with the children.

Partnerships from additional schools are welcome for 2018/19 please contact for further details.


Here's what a couple of schools have to say about this year's challenge -

Was great this year. Will try and get more children doing it next year. Thank you for organising this. Parents are raving about how fun it was.

Can I just take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work. This is the first year I have taken part in this, I was truly impressed with the communication and organisation. My children loved every minute and will always remember being part of this!

Thank you!
