Rampside Rush 2021

10k & 5k race around Furness

Rampside Rush 2680x1344
19 September 2021

10k £20/£15 junior | 5k £15/£10 junior

Another of our much-loved Furness events back for 2021!

Already this week we confirmed the return of the Piel Island Walk on 4 September and runners will be delighted to hear that the Rampside Rush is also back with a vengeance!

Our new Barrow fundraiser Heidi met with Chris Kay from Tri-Island Running this week to chat through arrangements for the 5k and 10k event which takes place on 19 September after a covid-related hiatus, and we can’t wait to see it up and “running” again!

The races are out-and-back routes which start and finish at Rampside Village Hall and entrants are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £20 on top of the race entry with all proceeds going to CancerCare.

Both races are family-friendly and all finishers will receive a bespoke medal and finishers t-shirt – as modelled by Chris!

Chris said: “We are excited to be working again with CancerCare. We have all, in some way, been affected by cancer and and CancerCare do a superb job of ensuring that they provide the support and care for individuals and families that are going through the challenges that this illness brings with it.

“We are hoping to build on 2019 and see an even greater turnout for the 2021 event. We have all had tough times as a result of the pandemic and it is certainly much-needed for us, after all this time, to get back out running as a group, as a team, and as a community once again. Supporting each other in the challenges we take on and ultimately celebrating as we cross that finish line.
