What is a Fun Run?
A fun run (funrun) is a friendly race that involves either road running or cross country running with participants taking part for their own enjoyment rather than competition. A fun run is especially good for fundraising with sponsors providing the revenue to cover organisational costs. Fun runs can include novelty categories, such as wearing costumes, and age categories for children, teens, and older adults. Fun runs can also be included as a side event to a marathon or other more competitive races. Motorcycle, snowmobile, and other vehicle events are also sometimes categorized as “fun runs.”
