YMCA North London’s Fun Run & Festival combines 10 running events with a festival of food, music and fun for all.
The day kicks off with the Adult 10k race at 09.30. Over a thousand adult runners will head over the start line, out of Priory Park, up Park Avenue and following a two lap route up and around the bottom of Alexandra Palace, finishing back over the Start/Finish line in Priory Park. Next follows a programme of nine Children’s 1 mile races – following a figure of eight route within Priory Park itself.
Running alongside these events is the Festival itself. A range of activities take place throughout the day, including a wide variety of local food, children’s activities and music for all the family. The food is a combination of hot and cold foods of different tastes and flavours, provided by local traders and there is a bar and grill, including the sale of alcohol.
