Connecting our community, to raise funds for local charities
Our mission is to raise funds for several local charities in and around the Cirencester area.
Across the spring and summer, we will hold a series of fundraising sport challenges.
We want everyone to feel able to participate. Our activities will be inclusive & accessible.
We will celebrate our achievements at a family friendly BBQ in September at Stratton House.
Our fundraising progress
Over the summer of 2022, we will return with our popular ‘Stratton Superstars’ events. Following the huge success of our first Stratton Superstars events in summer 2021, where we raised over £20,000, this year we will once again stage a series over action-packed fitness fundraisers.
The event will raise funds for Cirencester based charities, including Stratton Youth Football Club, Stratton Playgroup and Cirencester Housing for Young People (CHYP). We will also distribute funds to local schools and grassroots sports teams to invest in continuing, and enhancing, youngsters’ access to sports and food banks.
The final event will start and finish at Stratton House Hotel. Once we start, and through until mid-afternoon, there will be festivities at Stratton House for both supporters and runners.
How can you participate?
All the main events will be held in Cirencester but, people can participate wherever they choose. You can do as many activities as you wish to do and can either join in with the main group or complete them independently. On the final day we will have a shorter route for those aged under 18 so they can join in with the last few miles of the run before our finish at Stratton House Hotel.
250,000 step challenge
You will aim to walk over 250,000 steps across April. This can be done all at once or in stages and you will keep your own record of achieving the target.
You will aim to run 31 miles over May. This can be all at once or in stages – you choose!
It's ZUMBA time!
Run by renowned local Zumba instructor, Meryl Miller, we will put on a 2-hour Zumba class at Baunton Lane, on Saturday 2nd July (10-12 pm). Open to all ages and abilities!
