A new kids’ running club is being launched in Shefford.

The club is being launchedtomorrow, Saturday at Millennium Green Park, on Purcell Way.

After that, it will take place every first and third Sunday of the month. Kids should arrive at 8.45am for registration and warm-up, with races starting at 9am.

Organised by Aragon Housing Association in partnership with Shefford Town Council, the club is part of the Kids Run Free mission to create fun, sustainable running opportunities for children up to the age of 16.

The idea is to igniteg their passion for sport and physical activity and let them become healthier, happier, and more confident.

The events are fully inclusive, regardless of ability, and free to take part, with no registration fees and no attendance fees.

The club will offer fun running events for children of all ages, with a range of distances from 50m to over 1km.

Children will receive a race card and a free welcome gift on their first attendance. After that, if they attend 16 events they will receive a Kids Run Free gift.

Parents are asked to register their child online at before they attend, and print off the membership card (barcode) to bring to each event.

Kids Run Free events are run by volunteers from the local community.

Anyone wishing to get involved as a volunteer can contact Justin Mullis at
