Raw Running are proud to be organising a testing, fun and off-road charity 10km trail run at Findon Village during Grand National weekend.  The location is second to none, based in the picturesque village of Findon, Race HQ will be on Nepcote Green. New for 2024 is the 2km Kids Run around Nepcote Green (3 Laps)

This is a charity event with all proceeds going to the PTA at St John the Baptist Primary School in Findon Village School. With this being Grand National weekend and the village’s racing history, why not run in a jockey’s outfit and win the prize for the best dressed Filly or Colt!  In fact, to make sure we keep to the racing theme, you’ll need to register not only your full name, but that of your racing avatar! (an avatar is your alter ego or character!).   So, will you be an Aldaniti, & Bob Champion from 1981? Or perhaps the classic Red Rum, Mr Frisk, L’Escargot or you could make up one of your own such as Aerobically Challenged, Cirque Du Sore Legs or a Miss Demeanour!   The Protein Ball Co, our favourite energy food, will be on hand at the finish to provide you with your daily supplement – no bags of hay here!  If our other runs are anything to go by then this is likely to be very popular.

Why not run as a jockey: Try here, here or here!

What is the Grand National: Considered to be one of the greatest steeplechases in the world, the Grand National is the symbol of racing. This iconic race sees jockeys, as well as trainers, go head to head in a bid to win the sport’s most famous prize. With nearly two and a half miles of turf to cover, it covers 16 individual fences which are as iconic as the race itself.  This includes the likes of the infamous Chair not to mention Bechers Brook where many thoroughbreds come a cropper. On the other hand, it is a real test for not only the horse, but the jockey who needs to maintain the pace of the ride throughout the race.
