Frequently Asked Questions

You will receive an email with your tickets confirming your entry. If you do not receive this within two days of submission, please send an email with your name and address to

2. How do I register on the day

The registration desk will be near to the Colliery Cafe and will be open from 9.30am. Please bring electronic or paper copy of your ticket(s) to receive your race number. Race numbers provide a record of your entry to the event.

3. Will my time and position be recorded?

No, the ‘Coalville Community Fun Run 2024’ is a fun community event for all the family, not a race. No times or positions will be recorded and no prizes given.

4. Can I change from the 2k to the 5k course (or vice versa) on the day?

Yes, we ask you to indicate your chosen course for planning but you can select which course to take on the day.

5. Can I enter on the day of the event?

If there is spare capacity then we may consider accepting entries on the day. However, the only way to guarantee your entry in this event is to sign up in advance as once we hit our limit we will close entries.


6. What car parking will be available on the day?

We would recommend that local residents walk to this event where possible. However, car parking facilities are available on-site and are subject to normal parking fees.

7. What Toilet/Changing Facilities will be available?

Toilets and baby changing facilities are available in the Colliery Cafe. Unfortunately, there will be no entrant changing or baggage facilities available so we advise that entrants arrive ready changed in their run/walk outfits.


8. Can spectators come along to the ‘Coalville Community Fun Run 2024’?

Yes, spectators are very welcome. There will also be an opportunity for those wishing to support our charities but who are unable to run, as we will also be accepting donations on the day.


9. What else will be there be to do on the day?

The Colliery Cafe will be open as normal, serving food and drinks.  Snibston Coliery Park has a large outdoor play area for children. We expect each of our chosen charities to be present to hand out information. We will also offer stalls to other organisations and businesses.


10. Are both 5k and 2 k courses suitable for all abilities?

We welcome all abilities to take part in the event and the 2k course is accessible to all. Note that the 5k course has narrow gates which make it unsuitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users.


11. Why do I need to register under 5s when their entry is free?

All under 5s who register will receive a race number and a medal when they finish the course. We want them to feel part of the event. 

12. Can I take part with children in a pushchair or buggy?

This is very much a family event, and we welcome young children or babies to join in with the aid of a pushchair or buggy. We strongly advise that you do the 2k course as the 5k course has some gates which are too narrow for most pushchair and buggies. Please bear in mind that parts of the route may be a little bumpy! For safety reasons, all entrants with pushchairs/buggies or younger children will be asked to start from the back.

13. There will be a lot of people around, what happens if my child gets detached from me?

Children under 13 cannot run or walk the event alone, they must be accompanied at all times. All of the event marshals will be briefed on our lost child procedure, and we have a dedicated Lost Child Officer based at Event Control near to the Colliery Cafe to deal with any incidents.


14. Can my dog complete the course with me?

We are happy for dogs to come along. For safety reasons we ask that dogs are kept under control and on a short lead while on the course, with one dog per adult only.
