Run, walk, three-legged or fancy dress - we don't mind how you do it but join us with your family and friends to raise funds for the school. All participants will receive a Finisher’s Medal designed by the winner of our Medal Design Competition. The 2km Fun Run is open to children and adults, including former Boxgrove pupils!
Our bravest Boxgrove teachers will be given a head start in one shortened lap of the school grounds. Chasers who catch one of the teachers"tails’ will win points for their school house. The house with the most points at the end of the Chase will win the Chase Cup!
The Teacher Chase is only open to Boxgrove pupils (attending Boxgrove from September 2019). Limited Chaser places are available.
Your entry fee covers the cost of running the event. If you want to raise money for the school then please register on VirginMoneyGiving.com under Boxgrove PTA Events - Fun Run and create your own page - then you can send the link out to everyone you know! You can also use the paper sponsorship form to collect sponsors.
