The annual Nuneaton & Bedworth 5k Fun Run which took part on Sunday 24th March welcomed a wonderful variety of participants from far and wide.

Many mums and dads enjoyed racing with their children, one runner said: 

"It was brilliant and the kids loved it too. Definitely one we shall do again. Good to back in Nuneaton, here’s to the 10k in September. Thank you all again"

A former Harriers club member in attendance at the event said:

"This was my first 5k since breaking my ankle, but I had a great day and it’s helped me feel loads more confident! Thank you for organising it all…it was fab!"

The Mayor, Cllr Chris Watkins started the race off and gave out goody bags and certificates to finishing participants, he said:

“What a great day! It was wonderful to see so many families taking part, with all age ranges joining in and enjoying themselves whilst helping to raise a fantastic amount for my chosen charity of the year, Doorway.

“We would like to thank Fyffes and Edible Links for providing goody bag contents and bananas for the finishers, Harriers for helping organise the event, volunteers from NWHC Sports Diploma and Everyone Active.”
