An exciting range of running events suitable for all ages and abilities has been added to this year’s Old Town Festival.
With the Festival having kicked off last weekend, the Swindon community this year has four new opportunities to have some fun and actively participate.
Trevor Smith, Chair of the Festival Committee, says: “The addition of these Running events brings a whole new dimension to this year’s Festival and are part of Swindon’s Olympic Legacy programme. We hope the events will inspire people of all shapes and sizes to come and have a go.”
The four events happen on three different days. Details are as follows.
Lethbridge 10K on Wednesday 12 June starting at 7.30pm from Croft Sports Centre.
The race is for up to 400 runners and is now sold out!
Old Town Trot on Saturday 15 June starting at 9.00am from outside Kings Arms Hotel, Wood Street, Old Town.
This is a social running event for all abilities organised by welcoming and experienced local running leaders. You can choose either a three, five or eight mile loop depending on your level of fitness. And, having explored the Lawns and beyond, you can then relax over well earned refreshments at the hospitality tent – back in The Lawns.
Random Run on Saturday 15 June from noon to 4.00pm at the Secret Garden in The Lawns.
This run based fun activity can be enjoyed by all ages. Using a short marked course, you simply visit all the check points in the correct order as fast as you can.

Town Gardens Jog on Sunday 16th June at 9.00am – meeting by the bandstand near Town Gardens Café.
If you want to try out jogging and want some company or support in a small group, just turn up.

This will be followed by some cool down exercises under the guidance of local running leader, Vivienne Wise.
