The 2016 Autumn 5km Fun Run

Sunday, 25th September 2016

Speech House Field
Coleford, GL16 7EL

This is an opportunity for runners of all abilities and active families to enjoy a run in the Forest before the end of the summer, and help good causes in the process. This Fun Run is being organized as a separate event to complement the Forest of Dean Autumn Half Marathon which is being held on the same day. The event is organised by the Rotary Club of the Royal Forest of Dean to support Rotary charities.

5 km Fun Run - starts 10:15am

The 5 km Fun Run is open to runners of all ages
Entry: £10 online or on the day (assuming race not oversubscribed)
Under 16s must have permission from their parent or guardian

On race-day

5k Fun-Runners should present themselves to the 5k Fun Run reception close to the half-marathon chip distribution.

If you are planning to register on the day, please do so by 09:15 to avoid delays.

The fun-run course

This run will use an entirely off-road circular course on firm forest tracks. The track is mostly compacted gravel and as such suitable for running in trainers. There are some steady climbs and descents around the circuits. The route will be well signed and will have marshalls throughout the course.


This run is intended to be a fun run and although there will be no formal prizes, there will be souvenirs for each finisher.

We are very grateful for the involvement and support of a host of individual volunteers, together with number of local organisations who make this event successful, including the Forestry Commission and the Speech House Hotel.
