Do I have to fundraise?
Fundraising is entirely optional. This event has been organised by Sevenoaks Primary School in aid of our new school build.

In recognition of that support however we invite all participants to collect sponsorship for the school / group / charity of their choice. If your school or group is not already registered please let us know. Once we have permission we will then list it on our registration page so that you and others can run for your school or group with the name of that group on your printed back sign. Let us know who you are raising money for and we'll put that on too! To download a sponsor form please visit Sevenoaks Family 5k 2016.w.sevenoaks.kent.sch.uk/page/?title=New+School+d=356
