About this Event

Be inspired!

Choose a distance. Track your speed. Submit your evidence.

Run, jog or walk our first ever virtual fun run and help raise funds for the school through a voluntary registration fee and optional fundraising via our CGS Fun Run Team Just Giving page.

The event will be for both 5k and 10k distances, in several age groups:

  • Year groups up to and including Year 13s
  • Adults (18 years and over, excluding Year 13s)

We’ll send a certificate to all participants, with prizes awarded for:

  • the best time for each category: distance, gender, age group (and year group for students)
  • the best fundraisers in each year group
  • the best fancy dress outfits!

Register now and complete your virtual fun run at any point between 16th November and 31st December 2020.

Since we can’t get together in person, please share your photos and video clips on any of our social media channels.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How does a virtual fun run work?

A virtual fun run is an activity that can take place wherever you want, in your own time and at your own pace, (following the latest COVID-19 guidelines for safety).

Register to choose a distance between 5K or 10K, track your speed on your own GPS device, then email us your fun run evidence.

Once we've processed your results, we will send you your certificate via email and add you to a leader-board for distance, age and gender.

How do I submit evidence?

  1. Record your run (jog or walk) on your chosen App such as MapMyRun or Strava anytime up 31st December
  2. Send a screen shot with your name(s), age(s) and registration order number to focgsfunrun@gmail.com
  3. Title your email “CGS Fun Run Evidence"
  4. Attach your fancy dress photos (optional)

Can I register for more than one distance?

Of course you can, you crazy fun runner!

Can only CGS pupils and family participate?

We welcome anyone to take part and encourage you to involve friends and family not associated with the school.

Our aim is to establish the CGS Fun Run as a popular, regular event to continue to raise money for our school, so spread the word and invite others to join in.

Do I have to fundraise in order to run?

You don’t, but we’d love it if you did! The CGS Fun Run has replaced the FOCGS Spring Fair in raising crucial funds, so your support is greatly appreciated.

Please join the CGS Fun Run Team Just Giving page and click ‘Join Team’ to link your sponsorship donations to the overall Fun Run target.

And you can click to donate an optional amount when you register. Eventbrite charges a 2% service fee on donations.

Can I include photos taken during our run?

Yes please! We want to see you, your fun running family and friends celebrating your achievement, and we absolutely encourage you to wear fancy-dress - we'll even give a prize for the best outfits.

Please share your photos and video clips on any of our social media channels.

Am I fit enough to run?

We would recommend that all our participants follow the health advice on the Runners' Medical Resources Website.

We recommend that if your child (under 18) wants to enter, they should complete the distance under supervision and with a competing parent/guardian.

Any other terms and conditions?

Yes. Tickets are not transferable and all runners take part at their own risk. The organisers will not be responsible for any injuries sustained. Your entering the run is deemed your acceptance of these terms.

The event is organised by the Friends of Chesham Grammar School, registered charity number: 295740

COVID-19 Guidelines

Under the latest national lockdown guidelines in England, outdoor exercise and recreation will be allowed, but individuals can only meet one person from outside their household in an outside public space. Children under five are not counted.

If someone is not from your household or support bubble, please continue to follow social distancing guidelines: gov.uk - Meeting Others Safely.
