RNLI 200
RNLI 200

Now what would have been in its 23rd year the 10K race takes place in the beautiful coastal location of Lymington on Sunday, May 12th 2024.

This year’s event coincides with the RNLI’s 200th birthday which is on the 4 March 2024. Everything the RNLI has achieved in that time has only been possible thanks to ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Since the RNLI was formed in 1824, people like you have fundraised, volunteered, formed crews and funded the kit and lifeboats to save lives at sea. RNLI lifesavers are counting on you to join us in our 200th year and we are proud to have you beside us. See more about the RNLI and the history here https://rnli.org/about-us/our-history/2024

This year we have had an unbelievable prize donated of a spa day for two people at the amazing Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa, which will be awarded to the individual who raises the most sponsorship money. This can be done via the Justgiving link below or by downloading a sponsorship form. The sponsorship closes on the 31/08/2024 and the winner will be notified soon after. There are other prizes and trophies to be won for the fastest male and female 10K runners, along with other prizes for the different age categories as detailed on entry website.

Events for all ages in Woodside Park, Ridgeway Lane, Lymington SO41 8FP.

The Daily Mile GO Run For Fun is an international children’s fitness campaign, designed to inspire children to be more active through fun short-distance mass participation running events. It has been a phenomenal success with over 330,000 children taking part since it was launched in 2013. It is the core programme of The Daily Mile Events which helps to elevate The Daily Mile programme and encourages participation in The Daily Mile globally.

The Daily Mile is an initiative launched by Headteacher Elaine Wyllie MBE in 2012, after realising the average children’s level of fitness in her school was well below optimum. The Daily Mile encourages children to run, jog, wheel or walk for 15 minutes every day at whatever pace suits the child best, with the goal of improving the physical, social, emotional and mental wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.

The Daily Mile GO Run for Fun programme fulfils this aim – by getting as many children between the age of 5 and 10 running as possible to participate in, well organised, fun events. Since GO Run for Fun kicked off in Summer 2013, we have seen young runners take part in events spanning the UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Norway, USA, Mexico and Singapore – and the number of events is still growing!

In addition, The Daily Mile Foundation has created Mission Kids Fit For Life, a 6 week in-school digital health & wellbeing programme which teaches the importance of healthy lifestyles, nutrition, exercise, teamwork and much more. The resources are freely available to schools, which include videos, presentations, activity cards and a poster for children to learn from, for more information please visit: https://www.missionkidsfitforlife.com/
