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 22nd June 2014
Yes, 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, but if you want to run for your own charity, see 'Entry Forms' page for a sponsorship form.
If you don't fancy running, how about sponsoring or helping - we are always on the lookout for willing volunteers and sponsors! Support what is the fastest(?) growing unusual sport around!
For further information on running, sponsoring, advertising or helping at the event, contact Simon Sadler on firstname.lastname@example.org
