Figsbury Challenge

The Figsbury Challenge is a successful event that has been organised for more than 20 years by the Friends of Winterbourne Earls Primary School (FoWES) and raises funds for the school.


The day consists of 3 separate races:

  • 1km run for children in Reception, years 1 and 2
  • 3km run for children in years 3-5
  • 5km run for children in year 6 upwards as well as adults.


Due to covid we had to take the challenge virtual and a number of you enjoyed this. We are doing things slightly different this year in that in addition to the Fun Runs we will have a Challenge Week - children will need parents to submit photo evidence to the FoWES Facebook page daily - see the Interclass Challenge Week tab for more information.


The event is inclusive and ideal for all ages/abilities. Fancy dress is encouraged and keep your eye out for Figsbury fox!
