We are delighted to announce that the Farmhouse Five for women runners is returning to the local area for its second running.
The Farmhouse Five 2017 will once again be based from the wonderful barn at Lux Farm on the Playford Road on the outskirts of Ipswich, and the five mile multi-terrain running race will follow the fabulous footpaths of the Fynn Valley.
Taking place on Mothering Sunday, March 26 at 10am, the aims of the race are to encourage women runners of all abilities to explore and enjoy the glorious countryside on a supported and accessible off-road route. The unusual ‘reverse start’ and the fun new team challenge means that everyone has a chance of winning on the day.
The event will proudly be supporting Ipswich’s Lighthouse Women’s Aid charitable organisation which supports vulnerable women who have experienced domestic violence in the home.
2016’s event saw 220 women entering the race and £730 was raised through entry fees as well as from our extensive raffle on the day. The event is very family friendly, with lots to keep everyone entertained and all supporters are extremely welcome.
Once again, the Farmhouse Five is recognised as a supporter of Sport England’s This Girl Can national campaign. All female runners over the age of 15 are eligible to take part in the event.
