It’s not too late to sign up for the 5K/10K Retro Run on the 14th of June! 

The University of Essex is hosting the Retro Run in support of Age UK. It will be a fun-packed and fabulous new fitness event to bring people together and raise funds to support older people in Essex. There’s going to be face painting, funky tunes, ice cream, and a BBQ. 

Hosted at the Colchester campus, you can choose to walk or run a 5km or 10km route lined with fun dance music from across the decades. Runners are invited to team their trainers with funky dress and break out retro outfits! 

The Retro Run is family friendly, and suitable for all fitness levels. You can even bring along your dogs (as long as they’re kept on a lead). 

Early Bird Registration is just £15 for Adults and £10 for U16's which includes an official T-shirt and pedometer. 

Pre-event registration closes at 12pm on 31st May 2015. By registering to take part, you are pledging to raise a minimum of £25 in sponsorship.

You can sign up at http://www.ageuk.org.uk/essex/fundraising-events/retro-run-/
