The Baltonsborough Rainbow Run is a short fun run for children. Participants will be showered with non-toxic powder paint at various points around the course. It is not a race - you can walk, skip, jump, toddle or run! Please bring and wear protective eye-wear and old white clothing - it will be messy! It will take place on the main field behind the Baltonsborough Village Hall at 4 p.m. Parents/guardians must sign participants' entry forms, and under 5s must be accompanied by a mess-loving adult during the run. Entry Fee: £3

 

Charity "Christmas Pudding" 5 Mile Road Race  

December 2022 - race date to be confirmed

Important - please see our Covid Update page for the most up-to-date information on the 2022 races.

 

The Baltonsborough charity "Christmas Pudding" 5 mile race is a measured 5 mile road race on slightly undulating country lanes (over the same course as the August race).

 

This is a charity event. All profits will go to Rowan Romania. This is a UK charity that was founded by a group of Baltonsborough villagers in 2004, and is still run and primarily supported by Baltonsborough villagers. The charity is committed to supporting adults with special needs in a long-stay psychiatric hospital in Zarnesti, Romania. This hospital has around 150 patients, and is severely over-crowded and under-funded. Further details about the charity can be found at: www.rowanromania.com.

 

Fancy dress for participants is not compulsory, but is encouraged! Running Santas, elves, Christmas puddings, Christmas trees, and fairies are all welcome, as, indeed, are all and any others. Use your imagination...! It will be a fun occasion!

 

The race will start and finish at Baltonsborough Village Hall. On-the-day registration will take place at Baltonsborough Village Hall from 9.00 a.m. to 10.45 a.m., or application forms can be printed from this site and returned in advance, or advance online applications can be made from this site.

 

Entry fees:

Adult Affiliated: £15 advance registration / £17 on-the-day registration
