Heron Way Runs Great Britain

The Heron Way 10k Trail Run is replaced with a Virtual Challenge for 2020 – now extended to 4th Oct!

The annual PTA trail run has been very popular since it started in 2017, but COVID restrictions this year mean it is difficult to plan the event in its usual form. We’ve received so many messages of support and excitement about the run, so couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try something different.

This year’s challenge runs during the school summer holidays and has been extended into the Autumn term – 18th July to 4th October.

Together we’re going to run the distance around Great Britain!

This year’s challenge is a wonderful opportunity for children, parents, and our local community to get involved and remain active this summer. I can’t wait to hear the stories!

We’d love you to join in whether you’re a seasoned runner or it’s your first time in a pair of trainers. Children and families are particularly encouraged to join in and use the challenge to explore the local community and some of our wonderful surrounding countryside safely.

You can complete your challenge distance any way you like – running, walking, it’s up to you. You can do a little everyday, do it all in one go, or try something different like running in fancy dress – it’s totally up to you!

The process is simple – sign up for the challenge and tell us the distance you’d like to achieve over the summer. Your registration means your distance will be counted in our challenge counter, and you’ll be awarded with a finisher’s medal.

We’d love you to keep us updated with news, updates and photos throughout the challenge but there is no need to submit evidence of completion.

All proceeds are in aid of Heron Way PTA (registered Charity Number 295493).  


Adults: £10

Children: £3.50

Children that attend Heron Way can enter for free using a code sent to them by email from the school. 

There is also the option to buy packs of powdered paint, that can be used to make your run more colourful. The price per pack is £1 and you can order this at the same time as registering for the challenge.
