‘As each one does their part, we grow in love’

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.


As we know not every child is a runner there will be the opportunity through the Virtual Event 18th to 29th April 2022 for Children to do some form of exercise (see the virtual event tab for more information). In addition on the day there will be the opportunity to take part in a Kids Cross Fit and a Yoga session. 


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