The Chadacre Challenge is new, mixed ability, all terrain running event through the beautiful Suffolk countryside that aims to raise money for a new pre-school building for the village of Lawshall. Catering for serious runners who want to pit their wits against an all-terrain 10k course as well as those who feel that 3k is challenge is enough, the event has something for all the family.
The 10k run for those aged 15 and over is a demanding all-terrain course winding through the countryside paths and fields. There will be medals awarded to all finishers and a trophy for the top three male and female runners. Each participant in the 10k run will be provided with a chip to officially clock their time.
The Chadacre Challenge also includes a 3k fun run, similar to the very popular park run. This is a chance for children to run with parents, parents to run with babies in buggies (robust ones only) or toddlers on their shoulders! There will be prizes for fancy dress and a shiny medal for everyone involved.
The Chadacre Estate, a beautiful private 522 acre farming estate in the Suffolk countryside south of Bury St Edmunds , will be opening its gates to the public, by kind invitation of Mr and Mrs Lamprell. For those spectating, there will be tea, cakes, face painting and fun to be had on the sidelines.
Lawshall Pre-school are aiming to raise in excess of £65,000 for a new building to accommodate young children aged 2 1/5 to 4 years and help then get the best possible start in life. The new building will create an Early Years Centre of Excellence within the village of Lawshall in the grounds of the Outstanding All Saints’ Primary School.
