Whether you’re a seasoned runner, taking on your first 5K or just love a woodland stroll – our Robin Run 5K & Family Fun Day is the perfect way to get out into the great outdoors and spend time with your loved ones!

We have two route options - a 5k running trail and a one-mile walking loop - so everyone can get involved in a way that suits them.

Pack a picnic and join us this May for a wonderful day out in Nottinghamshire’s most famous woodland setting.

Plus more fun family activities and meet our special guest Giant Robin!

Take part and raise money for Nottingham Children’s Hospital

Once you’re signed up to the 5k run or one-mile treasure hunt walk (or both!) it’s time to start thinking about fundraising.

Getting sponsors for your run or walk is easy, and we’re here to help every step of the way.

You can raise money the good old fashioned way with a paper sponsorship form – just ask and we can send you one in the post or via email to print out at home.

Or you can ask your friends and family to sponsor you through your social media channels, by setting up an online JustGiving page.

Raising just £100 would make a huge difference to patient care at Nottingham Children’s Hospital, and would be a fantastic achievement for you as a family too!

About the Run and Walk

There will be two routes available:
A runner runs through the woodland away from the camera

Route #1 – Our 5k running trail for those wanting to challenge themselves and run or jog their way to support Nottingham Children’s Hospital. The run starts at 10.30am.

Download our training plan to help you work up to 5k! 

A family walks away from the camera into the woodlands

Route #2 – A one-mile walking loop, perfect for families with younger children, people with limited mobility, or those who just want to take a more leisurely stroll. Pick up our treasure trail and look for clues along the route! The walk is open between 11am-2pm.

Children under the age of 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult throughout both events. Those aged 13 years old and over can take part in either event alone.
