Junior Festival

The Junior Easter Running Festival is a 3 day event taking place from Friday 7 April - Sunday 9 April and runs in conjunction with the main EY Easter Running Festival. It will involve an exciting variety of races including a beach run, cross county run and relay (Easter egg hunt) run. All 3 races will take place at the same venues as the senior events so we encourage participants and parents to support the senior races when they are not racing themselves.
