    hoohaah 2022 events are raising funds for the fantastic charity Power2Inspirehttps://www.power2inspire.org.uk -whose aim is to see a society where everyone can enjoy inclusive sport together and who deliver sporting events for everyone to enjoy regardless of age, gender, faith, ethnicity or disability.  Along with making donations at the regisration stage, we would ask competitors to try to obtain sponsorship for their run. A suggested minimum figure to raise would be £25. However, sponsorship is entirely voluntary and is not a pre-requisite for entry to the run. Why not use the dedicated Just Giving page for your fundraising  https://justgiving.com/power2inspire

    In addition we will be collecting food donations for Cambridge City Foodbankhttps://cambridgecity.foodbank.org.uk/ – at each of our events. We will publish a ‘shopping list’ of food that is needed, as provided to us via the charity, just before each run. Donations are gratefully received but please donate items from the shopping list only.

    Throughout our 10 years of race organization runners have never failed to heap praise on our volunteer marshals – they are a tremendous team many of whom return year on year to help us.

    If you have some time to give and enjoy spending it outdoors do please contact us info@justhappen.co.uk.  No previous experience is required!

    Custom designed medal for all finishers to be collected at the end of the race.

    *** New for 2022*** If you would prefer to forego a medal we are offering a ‘Green Race Entry’ whereby hoohaah will donate the cost of producing your medal to global tree planting initiatives via Just One Tree – https://www.justonetree.life. You will have the option to choose between a medal or a tree during the registration process.

    Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 male and female finishers, and the first male and female in the following categories (over45, over55 and over 65)
    The presentation of prizes will take place between 11 and 11.15am subject to getting the results from the chip timer. Only prizes for the first 3 men and women over the line will be awarded on the day. All other age category prizes will be posted after the event.

    Parking
    There is ample parking at High Lodge although some parts may be on a field. Parking for race participants is at a reduced rate of £5 per car for the day so participants are free to enjoy the forest after the event for no extra charge. This is a charge levied by the Forestry Commission and not hoohaah.  A code for event parking will be forwarded in the pre-race email at the beginning of race week. Participants will need to pay for parking before or after the event at the pay stations or High Lodge information point and cite the code.
