An event for people of all levels to sign up and achieve their goals
We encourage you to the finish line and award medals whether you run hard, or for fun. We like events where people can test their resilience and get a buzz from feeling a sense of team spirit. These traits make for a meaningful experience and are key to the Hospice’s cause.
Sign up individually or as part of a team. This event is all about the camaraderie so even if you’re not in a team there will be plenty of encouragement throughout the 5km course.
Battle of the Knights takes place on Sunday, 14 April, at The Playground, in Barrow, near Bury St Edmunds.
To enter, adults pay £30, whilst juniors pay £15 for the 1km race. All fees go towards the Hospice’s work to support people caring, dying and bereaved.
If you are able, we would love for you to fundraise. Every donation makes a difference and a website like Justgiving.com makes it easier to ask.
