Runstock is designed so ultra runners and kids alike get the buzz of mixing together in a full-on running challenge.


Kids get all the same elements as adults with timing chips, Rat Race t-shirts and headbands. Of course, kids have loads of energy so there are 7 ‘fun stop’ challenges on the run route to spice things up. When taking a break from running there are event village kids activities too.

Kids pricing at Runstock applies to 5 to 12 years old. Teenagers are counted as adults in terms of entry pricing as they will be using all the facilitates that grow ups use. The event village and campsite share the same field so tents, activities, food and bev are all close by. To keep things as safe as possible we have 24 hour paramedic and professional security on site with our event village only accessible by wristband to keep the venue exclusive to runners and their supporters.



Under 5s are not charged to accompany a relative on the course. They will need to be accompanied on the route by an adult that has entered the event and has a valid wristband. We suggest that parents and guardians may consider using buggies or carrying small children during busy times and always remain vigilant of runners that are overtaking. It is up to the parents if they wish their under 5s to do the on-course Fun Zones. Please follow our instructions and signs on the day so we can provide a clear and safe route for all runners. Ultimately the safety of children is the responsibility of parents and guardians.

Whilst under 5s are not able to formally enter the event, they can qualify for a medal if accompanied if they complete a lap with a participating parent. We have an under 5s t-shirt for sale (click here to buy one) that can be picked up at the event from the store collection point. The size will be 4-5 years.

Under 5s do not need to purchase a ticket to enter the event village or the campsite but will need to pay to use the non-free activities if they are tall enough to use them.
