Snap up free fun run places

Fancy taking part in the St Hugh’s Hospital Family Fun Run for free? If you’re quick off the starting block, you’ll be just in time to snap up the remaining places.

As reported, we have joined forces with Tape2Tape – the organiser of the Ørsted Great Grimsby 10k, of which the fun run is a part – to offer 250 free spaces for the event on Sunday, June 5.

More than two-thirds have already been taken, but there’s still time to sign up to the 1km route around People’s Park, Grimsby.

You might have seen us in the media recently, including in the Grimsby Telegraph (pictured), because Friendship At Home has done exactly that and booked their spots on the run… from a toddler to a pair of 89-year-olds, they’re proving age is no limit to participation!


Once these free places have gone, families can take advantage of a reduced entry fee. Finishers each get a medal, sweets, and a drink, so come along and get involved, cheer GY10k participants over the finish line, and enjoy the activities, stalls, and music on offer, too.

As ever, St Hugh’s is proud to once again be sponsoring the GY10k and hosting the fun run – a chance for people to enjoy being outdoors together, raising money for good causes in our community.

Part of our ethos at St Hugh’s is about encouraging people of all ages to get active, so what better than a run that really is fun… and taking part for free, too?

There’s no upper or lower age limit, or a requirement to run – you can walk, stroll, or hop, skip, or jump if you want… even pushing a pram counts! The route isn’t as long as the Great Grimsby 10K, so it’s a good place to start if you’ve never done any running or jogging before. You complete it at your own pace, in your own time, at whatever speed you feel comfortable with. It’s also ideal for the opposite – those who might have competed in road races over the years and are now looking for something to do with the grandchildren.

With free places up for grabs – and a medal for finishers, too – this is all about participation, community, and togetherness, and a fun day out raising cash for charities who need support more than ever following the pandemic.


As reported, the overall Tape2Tape event is raising money for seven charities this year: the Horizon Youth Zone; the RNLI; A Platform To Talk; Harbour Place; Navigo; Doorstep; and Mind. Check out our website for spotlights on each of the organisations and the work they do in our community.
