Inter-School Competition

Run Forest Run would like to invite all primary and secondary schools in the area to form a minimum team of four to compete in our 2km and 5km Inter-School Competition.
The Fun Run is all about challenging children to increase their fitness and push themselves to achieve a new sporting goal.
This is a great opportunity for schools to put forward their best cross country or long distance runners to compete as a team and represent their schools.


5km race – Best Primary School Team
5km race – Best High School Team
2km race – Best Primary School Team (no team registration required)
