Step Up 4 Good 10k and family fun runs 2019 @ Newbury Racecourse
Oct 13 @ 11:00 am

Step Up 4 Good 2019 is our fourth year and sees a transformation of venue, taking our annual Autumn race from the dramatic terrain of Greenham Common, to the state-of-the-art Newbury Racecourse on Sunday 13th October. Our popular event consists of three distances, starting with the Family-Mile/Para-Mile, 3K Fun Run and the Big 10K race, all taking place within the safe environment of Newbury Racecourse.

New for 2019 we are offering a unique all-inclusive event, for children under the age of 15. Those with a disability or impairment will have the opportunity to run/jog/walk a mile at their own pace after the Family-Mile runners have commenced and it is completely free to enter, thanks to sponsor – Swift Group, Newbury. We are very excited to be able to offer this and have received great support from UKA, Run Together, Activity Alliance, Sport in Mind and local ambassadors to raise awareness for disabled children in sport. Step Up 4 Good is a great challenge for children of all abilities, to enter and train towards.

Our popular 3K Fun Run is back by demand and is open to both adults and older children. This takes place on tarmac, there is no running on grass! There is also plenty of space for spectators to watch their little ones run by and cheer them along from the comfort of the undercover Grandstand.

The Big 10K race is a scenic single loop on road and hard packed paths, in and around the perimeter of the racecourse. The course is quick, flat and ideal for PB’s. Run under UK Athletics rules, it is a new fast race for competitive club athletes and aspiring runners looking for a scenic and friendly event. The route is fully marshalled, marked in kilometres, with a water station at the half way point. Every paid entry receives a personalised bib, chip-timing, tech t-Shirt and finisher medal.

Our indoor event village will be filled with a wonderful community buzz. Packed full of local charities, delicious food, refreshments, music and entertainment and lots more. Located at the iconic Racecourse, it’s going to be an exciting family event, with time to jog round with the kids and then run your own timed race, before finishing the day browsing the various stalls and food outlets within the Grandstand building. Run for fun or raise money for local community projects in the build up to race day. Greenham Trust wants to encourage every runner and supporter to get behind a local project, charity or appeal, or even register your own project as a fundraiser on The Good Exchange platform https://bit.ly/2DW9yHL

Lots of schools use our event as a fundraising opportunity. Greenham Trust are again giving local state primary and secondary schools, the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win £500 for a project of their choice. Each state school who registers 10 or more pupils to run, will automatically be entered into a prize draw for £500. So get your school signed up today, to be in with a chance of winning! Also new this year is our informative ‘Schools Toolkit’ available on our website. This offers a quick step-by-step guide for teachers and parents, with links to a selection of downloadable resources to make the organisation quick and simple. The entry process is now much quicker for groups and schools too, as you will see on the entryhub, the facility to add multiple runner entries in one transaction, is simple and easy to use.

We will also draw our third Golden Ticket during the trophy presentations. Each paid runner will be entered into a prize draw and the lucky winner will be invited to nominate a project on The Good Exchange, to receive £5000 in funding from Greenham Trust.

We are working with some of the best industry professionals – Racesolutions (Endure24/Royal Berks 10K) http://www.racesolutions.co.uk/ and Eventrex https://www.eventrexuk.com/, to make Step Up 4 Good 2019 bigger and better and we would love to see as many local schools as possible taking part. This event is a valuable addition to Greenham Trust’s annual community calendar, encouraging people to become more active and bringing individuals from all walks of life and abilities together, to raise money for charitable causes.

Help us make this Newbury’s biggest and most fun family running event!
