The Silchester 24 Event

Silchester Fun Run shall be supporting the Silchester 24 event that will be held from 3:30pm on Saturday 2nd to 9pm on Sunday 3rd September. Silchester 24 will be a 24 hour sporting extravaganza, focused on raising as much money as possible to help the Pavilion Refurbishment Project reach their target of £75,000.

At the heart of the event will be a 24hr walk that Peter Howells will be undertaking around the Silchester Fun Run 7mile course. His target is to walk a total of 70 miles within the 24 hour period.

To help encourage Peter to keep going we will be hosting the Silchester 24 (Virtual) running event, where you can either join Peter along the course and challenge yourself to see how far you can run within 24hrs, or support the event virtually. The course will be dressed for the occasion, with fairy tunnels along the way. So why not come along and join in with the enchanted fun. There will be a prize for the entrant that completes the furthest distance.

For those of you that wish to join us in Silchester, you will be able to camp on the playing field and be a part of the whole extravaganza that promises to be something to remember.

To register your interest / participate in any of the events for the Silchester Twenty-Four please contact the Silchester Fun Run via Facebook
