Burrs Community Run
The Sunnywood Project are passionate about getting people outdoors in as many ways as possible.
We have teamed up with the Burrs Community Run to help families get active with a free weekly, easy paced 2km or 5km run at The Burrs Country Park, Bury.
No booking required, just turn up ready to start your day with some active fun!
What is the Burrs Community Run?
Free Family Fitness
The Burrs Community Run is organised by volunteers. We promote the enjoyment of embracing the outdoors and supporting each other to enjoy being active.
2KM or 5KM
Our circular route allows you to choose to run 2km or 5km. These different distances are perfect for young children and their grown-ups who want to get active together or anyone who wants to improve their fitness.
Starting September 2021, The Burrs Community Run will take place every Sunday morning at 9.30am starting from The Burrs show field next to the Brown Cow pub.
Recording your time
Timing cards are completely optional and you do not need one to take part. If you would like your name recorded against your time, you will need a timing card.
Timing cards are available online via the shop or can purchased for £5.50 during the Burrs Community run every Sunday morning. If you choose to run without a timing card, you will be recorded as an 'unknown runner'.
Taking part in The Sunnywood Project Burrs Community Run is absolutely free. However, to help us cover our expenses, we are asking for a suggested donation of £1 per family. Donations can be made on the morning of your run or via the donate button below. Donations are not mandatory but they do help us continue and grow our Community Work and Youth Programme.
