5K Fun Run

The day is about having lots of fun and raising money, so even if you’ve never done a run before but want to give it a go, this is the perfect opportunity for you!

Junior Super Hero 1K Run

WANTED!! Super heroes under the age of 18 to take part in our Junior Super Hero 1K Run. Get dressed up as your favourite hero to celebrate the everyday heroism of young carers in our community. There will be prizes for the fastest girl/ boy as well as best fancy dress. Registration costs £2.

If you are interested in either race, please contact events@family-action.org.uk to register. For insurance purposes, all runners MUST  register in advance.

After the run, please join us for a picnic – bring your families too, everyone is welcome!


As well as getting fit and having fun, the Greenwich Young Carers 5K Fun Run is all about raising money for activities for the brilliant Young Carers in the borough of Greenwich supported by Family Action.
