Big Fun Runs are 5K runs staged within scenic parks throughout the UK and offer a relaxed, family friendly atmosphere where you can accomplish your personal goals. Enjoy a fantastic day outdoors with friends and family, and the chance to get fitter as you run, walk or jog your way to the finish line.

By taking part and fundraising on behalf of Link Ethiopia, you will help us to continue our work in changing lives through education. With the money you raise you will help to empower teachers, improve schools and ensure that all children can get a good education.
