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!
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 2014 our principal national charity is Mind, and our main local charity is CHUMS.
We are hoping that people will run to raise money for these worthy causes and there are online charity donation accounts set up - just click on the links above. 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.
For further information on running, sponsoring, advertising or helping at the event, contact Simon Sadler on email@example.com
