Event Description

Big Trip


Thanks for joining Penwortham Run Fest's virtual fundraising event.  We’re here to raise money for some of our wonderful local causes and bring our community together with lots of fun along the way. We support NF1 Army and St Catherine’s Hospice and this year we have chosen to also make donations to Lancashire Mind and BabyBeat. 


Here’s our story: 

Penny’s beloved Pax has been on a trip to Australia, he went to visit Penwortham in Adelaide which we discovered was founded by John Horrocks of Penwortham Preston! 

Pax was at the airport with his suitcase ready to return home to his beloved Penny when his flight was cancelled!  Pax has challenged himself to make his own way back home and he will set off on 1st January. However, he can only travel with our help! For every 10K we collectively travel Pax will be able to move 1k on his virtual adventure to return home to his beloved Penny.  So, whether you walk, run or cycle simply share with us your distance travelled each day and we will take care of the rest.  Pax will share plenty of pictures and postcards of his journey, with your help we’re hoping he will be able to stop off at many wonderful sites along the way and we hope to raise lots of money for our wonderful local causes as we go. 

Our challenge is to get Pax back home to Penny for her birthday on 11th September so they can be reunited and celebrate together.  

We will be keeping Penny company here in Penwortham while she is waiting for her lovely Pax to return to her. We’ll share her fun on our social media pages and you will hopefully see her out and about from time to time.
