After last year’s Run had to be cancelled, we were all hoping that this year we would be able to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our 10K Run, which takes place in the beautiful coastal location of Lymington.

There is clear evidence that a healthy body helps create and maintain a healthy mind. We could all do with some of that about now sadly we cannot yet guarantee a COVID secure event, so we have decided to do a ‘virtual’ event. We sincerely hope this will encourage people to get out (or on a treadmill) and do some exercise and support our Lymington Lifeboat at the same time.

Our sponsors and supporters have generously supported us again.  For those over 18 years old at the time of running their 10K, we have had some amazing prizes donated. We have come up with a new exciting ribbon for the medals this year to mark this (hopefully) ‘one-off’ event.  There will also be a prize for the greatest sponsorship money raised.

We have a separate Children’s Fun Run with our annual event, so we have tried to encompass this as well, and there are various options for children below.

We hope you are up for the challenge and find our virtual event motivating and as exciting as all the volunteer Crew at Lymington do. This event has been organised, as always, by the Lymington Lifeboat volunteers and all proceeds will go to the Lymington Lifeboat Station, so be assured that whilst you are benefiting from exercise you are also donating to a very worthy charitable cause.

Events for nearly all ages in any safe location between 09:00 on the 7th May 2021 and 18:00 on 9th May 2021

Our supporters have very kindly donated fifteen fabulous prizes. As this is not a race, all names who register, pay and upload a finishing time for the 10k will be uploaded into our randomiser software and fourteen names will be drawn at random.

For our sponsorship competition download a sponsorship form or go to www.justgiving.com for the chance to win an additional prize!

GO Run for Fun is an international children’s fitness campaign, designed to inspire children to be more active through fun short-distance running events. It has been a phenomenal success with over 335,000 children taking part since it was launched in 2013.

The GO Run for Fun programme has a very simple aim – to get as many kids between the age of 5 and 10 running as possible, through well organised 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, GO Run For Fun and The Daily Mile has teamed up to create Mission Kids Fit For Life. The programme provides primary schools and parents with educational content to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of every child – regardless of ability or personal circumstances.
