Sevenoaks Family 5K
The inaugural Sevenoaks Family 5k, created in conjunction with Sevenoaks School took place in October 2015. The whole community was invited to take part by either walking or running through the stunning Knole Park venue. The aim of this event was to bring the local community together for a family event which would raise funds not only for the New Build but also for other local charities.
The sun shone and the venue was spectacular. Georgina Burnett, with some assistance from the Yeti fired the starting pistol and 500 entrants were off! Families from 15 schools as well as many local businesses and sports clubs took part and raised over £10,000 for good causes.
We couldn’t have done this without the very generous support of Sevenoaks School and our major sponsors Sevenoaks Medical Centre, Ibbett Mosely, Berry & Lamberts Solicitors, Bat & Ball Sports, Sevenoaks Computers and A-Plan Insurance. Up & Running provided runner numbers and staff from Tesco handed out refreshments along the route. Water was provided by Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer. Our co-sponsors provided items for the goody bags; thanks go to Better Body Shop, FeMan Consulting, Nizels and The Sevenoaks Chronicle.
The event surpassed our expectations and we are delighted to announce that our sponsors have agreed to support us for another year. The 2nd Sevenoaks Family 5k will take place on Sunday 2nd October 2016 at 2pm.We look forward to seeing you there.
The event sold out last year so please enter early to avoid disappointment.
