West Worthing 5k & 10k
Sunday 11th March 2018 – 10:30am start
A great seafront run along Worthing seafront offering a choice of 10k or 5k distances, it is a fast and flat run on an out and back route on Sunday 11th March 2018.
The run is to raise money for four fantastic special schools in the Thrive Federation. Palatine Primary School and Oak Grove College in Worthing and Herons Dale Primary School in Shoreham cater for children with special educational needs, many of whom have associated sensory, motor and communication difficulties including Autistic Spectrum Conditions. Cornfield School in Littlehampton is for boys with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. All the schools do incredible work with the children but, as always, budgets are tight. Fundraising allows the schools to address the unique needs of all the pupils at the schools and enhance their learning experience to make it as fun, dynamic and creative as possible.
Some of the projects the schools are looking to fund are; wheelchair accessible play equipment, a Forest School shelter, playground trim trail and surfacing, sensory equipment for calming room and refurbishment of a Food Technology room.
After the success of last year’s run we are back for a second year and are hoping again for a great turnout. The event is managed by Sporting Events UK and will be chip timed, officially measured and is licenced by Run Britain and UK Athletics, all finishers will get a bespoke medal plus there will be category and team prizes.
