Subway Family 5k runs, brilliant races across the UK for any age, did the Bristol race this year and Cardiff last with my boys who are now 9 and 7 year old. Not sure what is left for this year but a must for next year. Great medal, tech t-shirt for every age and a subway lunch afterwards. Kids up to 12 race free and still get all the goodies listed.
Another good allrunners race is their Rudolph Rampage in December similar terrain and again some hills but the most fun. Medals are always really good as well. I probably will do this HM again as I always say won't but still end up entering and really enjoying it.
Hi I did the half route and my Garmin measured 14.24 miles. Beyond tough, love Cotswold allrunners races but wont be doing that again the hills were just to steep even for a local girl used to running in the area.
I buy gel cumulus in juniors. I have always brought the junior size. I pay less than half and still run between 400-450 miles per pair. Just run London in them and the support and cushioning is fine. Personal choice I suppose, I figure that I weight less than some of the young lads that wear the equivalent size.
