Chris Evans, the Virgin Radio Breakfast Show DJ, has revealed the next stop on the RunFestRun tour. The running and music event will take place at Windsor Great Park on May 22-24, 2020.
Organised by Redcoat Events, a partnership between Brand Events, Chris Evans and News UK, the inaugural three day running and music festival took place earlier this year at Bowood House and Gardens, Wiltshire. It saw thousands of families from all over the country take part in a range of running events from a half marathon, a 10k through to a bug-themed fancy dress immersive 5k fun run.
Evans said: “RunFestRun is completely different to any event I’ve ever been to before, it was off the charts, so, so good. I ran 42km over the course of the weekend and came away with no aches or pains. We came back leaner, meaner, fitter, lighter and shinier, which is a festival first!
“You never know if an event is going to be a success until you actually do it, and on the Friday afternoon, we thought ‘oh my goodness me, this is beyond our wildest dreams’ and it just got better and better and better.
“We can’t wait to bring the event to Windsor Great Park, we’ve had all the permissions, even the Queen has given her blessing, so we’re good to go!”
Team Captains Colin Jackson, Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram and Natasha Evans are all confirmed to be returning to the event.
Vassos Alexander, co-host of RunFestRun added” “We’re so excited to announce plans for Windsor, it’s the next stop on our running tour. The first event at Bowood was beyond everyone’s wildest dreams, three shiny happy days with everyone going home with a great big grin on their face.”
With a line-up of speakers, well-known bands and DJs to be announced later in the year, the three-day camping festival will include even more running routes, bringing back the sold-out night-time run and an even more magical family fun run.
