Pangbourne Primary School’s active PTA organisation, the Friends of Pangbourne Primary School (FOPPS) will be hosting its annual 10k race, a multi-terrain race through the beautiful woods and countryside overlooking Pangbourne, Berkshire, on Sunday 22 September. The chip-timed race starts at 10.30am and will be run under UK Athletics rules.
Runners can enjoy a coffee bar, cold drinks, cake stall, and the event will also have official children’s fun run races (ages 5-7 and ages 8-11) with medals for all runners and prizes for winners.
The annual event is one of the largest fundraisers for Pangbourne’s PTA, and this year the charity is raising money to replace playground equipment for all year groups, as well as refresh the ICT equipment.
Race fees are £17.50 for unaffiliated runners and £15 for affiliated runners.
Entry into the children’s races is free.
We are supported by our race day sponsors: 2M Property Services, Krazy Playdays, Woodborough House Dental Services and Bradley Tech.
