Egdon Heath Harriers - Race Details

The Egdon Pyjama Jaunt (4.5m)

18:30 Tue 19 May 2020 - Weymouth Rugby Club, Monmouth Avenue, Weymouth DT3 5HZ

The Course
The route will be entirely off road starting and finishing at Weymouth Rugby Club.

Free parking is available at the Weymouth Park and Ride which is a ~5 minute walk to the Rugby Club along the shared cycle/footpath. Please avoid parking in the nearby roads if at all possible.

Organised by Egdon Heath Harriers as a Charity Fundraising event.

A 4.5ish mile fun run and 1.5 mile kids untimed fun run (nb. any adults running with children in the 1.5m event must also enter) taking place during Mental Health Awareness week with all proceeds going towards the local mental health charity, Dorset Mind.

From personal experience, I found that when my mood was at it's lowest, all I wanted to do was stay in bed in my Pyjamas, even though I knew that getting up, dressed and doing any form of exercise, would benefit my mental health. Hence the fancy dress theme for this run is Pyjamas. This is obviously optional but it would be fantastic if as many of you as possible could support this. I'm sure you can co-ordinate these with your club vests in some way.

As this is a charity event, there are no refunds, deferrals or transfers.

On behalf of Egdon Heath Harriers and Dorset Mind, I thank you in advance for your support in raising valuable funds for the charity. Last years inaugural event was amazingly well supported and we are hoping to raise even more this year.

The children's fun run will set off shortly after the main race so adults won't be able to partake in both.
Any adults running with their children in the 1.5m event should also enter.
If you are happy for them to and your child is confident, then your child may run the race unaccompanied. There will be a couple of running marshals and also a tail runner in the race. However, there must be someone waiting for them at the finish as we can't have unsupervised children at the Rugby Club.

Please arrive changed, there are toilet facilities at the The Rugby Club, which will open the bar after the run for a refreshing post run drink.

For further information contact, please contact Bev Smith (Race Director).
