Redwood Event Solutions has been awarded the contract to deliver operations and safety for Chris Evans’ inaugural RunFestRun, taking place May 31- June 2 at Bowood House and Gardens.

Redwood will work closely with Wireless Events to help shape the first RunFestRun, which will offer running challenges alongside a music stage and family entertainment. Having been brought on board at the initial concept of the event, Redwood conducted a feasibility report for the proposed event site. Now in full planning mode, Redwood will deliver all safety requirements pre-event and on site for the three-day festival.

From family fun runs to half marathons, those visiting the festival will be able to enter different running challenges over the weekend. Redwood will work closely with the race management team to ensure the routes are carefully planned and will offer safe and fun challenges for the event.

As part of the operations role, Redwood will manage and deliver all procurement and production schedules, working with the external partners and Bowood House team to create the blueprint for this inaugural event.

Jim Davey, managing director of Redwood Event Solutions said: “This is an exciting new event and one that ticks all Redwood’s boxes, we’ve collaborated with clients to create family focused and fun events in the past including CarFest and the Pub in the Park series, so we’re super excited to be brought in for a new event in its first year. The concept is great, the backdrop of Bowood House is simply stunning – it’s going to be an amazing event!”

Neil Levene, operations director at Wireless Events, added: “When it comes to developing new events, Redwood is integral from an operations and safety point of view. The team’s experience in helping to create events and previous experience at Bowood House has been invaluable.”
