How far is the run?

The route is 1,2 or 3 laps of approximately 600metres.

Marshalls will be on the route to direct the runners.

The children don’t need to be able to run the whole way.

We understand that children like to take little rests so a mixture of walking, jogging and running is recommended. It’s all about having fun. 

What are the age guidelines?

All ages are welcome to take part (under 8’s must run with a parent or guardian)

Parents of children over 8 years may run with their child if they wish.

NOTE TO PARENTS – On entering your children to the South Shields Junior Fun Run, you agree to take full responsibility for your child before, during and after the run. The organisers and volunteers can not be held responsible. Any risks will be fully explained at registration & at the start of the run.
