Welcome to the home of the Flitton annual Potato Race. An occasion when fitness can be fun, enjoyable and you can raise money for charity.  The course runs through the villages of Flitton and Greenfield and is great fun for all the family, whether participating or providing vocal support!  

Sunday 21st June 2015

Celebrate Father's Day 2015 at the Potato Race!

Back by popular demand this is the only race of its kind in the country. Take the opportunity to run, walk or stagger a mile from Greenfield to The White Hart, pay for the privilege and raise money for charity, all at the same time!


Choose your weight - 20, 10, 5 or 2kg for individuals, depending on age. For children and toddlers there are spud and spoon races, Tatties In A Bucket and Design A Potato Head competitions! Plus this year there will be a Father's Day Challenge - A Test Of Strength!

Prizes and trophies, plus medals for all! Timings are approx midday to 13:00, in time for lunch & prizes. 

All profits to go to charities and local projects. We have a tradition of supporting a national charity as well as a local one closer to home; for 2015 our principal national charity is ABF The Soldiers' Charity, and our main local charity is East Anglian Air Ambulance.

If you would prefer to donate and not run, please do so as every pound counts. However, there is nothing to stop you running on behalf of your own chosen charity.

In 2014 we donated over £2000 to Mind (including match funding from Barclays Bank) and £500 to CHUMS. Thank you very much to everyone involved!
