St Albans Half Marathon Fun Run

Can GFS win the most improved school prize this year?!

We're pulling out all the stops this year! In 2017, GFS won a cash donation for the 'most improved' numbers registered. In 2017 & 2018, we also received a further cash donation for providing marshals for the 5K race. This year, we'd like to achieve the 'highest percentage of children attending our school' registered! That's the top donation. If anyone can do it, we can! It's a fun morning with an unchallenging route that even the most challenged among us can conquer. Registration opened on 2nd October with an 'early bird' cost of £7 per person. Only children 12yrs and below who are current pupils at Garden Fields will be considered in our head count. But all are welcome to join in the fun! There is lots to try once the race is finished: a taster of various sports, stalls, food, etc. And it would be lovely to meet together afterwards for a pic nic. Winners are normally announced 11:30/12:00.
