Join us for Winter Run Orwell.

Due to the COVID-19 situation this year we sadly had to take the main Run Orwell event virtual. As a school PTA physical fundraising events continue to be difficult this year. So we thought we would try something a little different with a self-guided COVID aware half and full marathon across the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside we are fortunate enough to call home.

There will be very limited places with a staggered start time to keep COVID safe numbers in the start area. Unfortunately with small numbers we are unable to offer chip timing or first aiders, so this is quite a different event to our usual 5 and 10K.

You will be issued with a map of the route and will need to self navigate your way over a distance of approximately 13 or 26 miles, ensuring you check in at one or two checkpoints along the route.

This event will raise valuable funds for the village school, Petersfield Church of England Aided Primary School. This event is (and always has been) a non-profit event, with all monies raised going to Friends Of Petersfield School (FOPS) to raise funds for the village Primary School in Orwell.
