Sawston Fun Run and Walk 2017 Registration Is Open!

The Sawston Fun Run has been a major feature of Sawston life for 30 years. It is an occasion when residents join together to celebrate their community spirit and at the same time raise funds for charities and local organisations.
In 2017 our major beneficiary is the new Arthur Rank Hospice at Shelford Bottom. We have committed ourselves to donating up to £7,500 to equip a residential room in the hospice. In addition, we have identified 15 other local activities which will receive funds
Other groups to benefit will be Sawston Youth Drama, Dictionary 4 Life - Dictionaries for Primary school children, Sawston Youth Group, Jigsaw Playgroup, Sawston Army Cadets, Sawston Sports Centre, Sawston Scouts, Sawston Girls FC, Barrington Primary School, Friends of Ickneild Primary School, Abington Annexe Preschool, Sawston Riding for the Disabled, Chestnut Playschool Linton, Whitsers and Barrington Youth Club.
This great local event has expanded over the years and regularly attracts about 1,000 entrants. It has become the largest community led event of its type in the area - organised and managed by Rotary Club volunteers, with support from local businesses and youth organisations. Past sponsors and advertisers are already confirming their backing. We would love to hear from any other business or individual who is willing to be involved.
Registration now open for the 2017 event
