Farmhouse Five for Females

We had such a superb day at The Farmhouse Five for Females in March, that we’re doing it again in 2017! : )

For those who missed some of the fun and games on the day, here’s a flavour of what went on…

With over 200 entrants, the majority joined the “Oh wow! I’m delighted that I did it” category of ‘running goddesses’, in our reverse-start 5 mile, multi-terrain race along the fabulous footpaths of the Fynn Valley in Suffolk.

And we're off!

The barn at Lux Farm was an awesome venue (literally!), from which to stage the Race HQ. It was beautifully decorated with the bouquets of flowers (the prizes!) from Kaye Souter Flowers and there was a great buzz as women registered, while others went for a pre-race massage…(thanks to Rob Lambert Massage).

No one seemed to escape having their photo taken in the mobile booth (with endless enthusiasm from Ruth Leach Photography : ) – Mum and Daughter duos, teams and even whole families!

Plenty of young-uns had their faces painted (courtesy of the very talented Sarah Nourse) and enjoyed fabulous snacks from Christine’s Tea Rooms in Woodbridge.

Everyone went home with goodies of yummy ‘Bring Back the Bath’ detox baths salts and Munchy Seeds, in addition to the lucky winners from the huge charity raffle! Most importantly we collected pots and pots of gold for the Ipswich Lighthouse Women’s Aid.

All in, it was bundles of fun! There was a great atmosphere, everyone was super supportive, and soooo many friends and family went above and beyond the call of duty to help out on the day! : )

Plans for just as much fun and positive are taking shape and we’re booked and ready to rock and roll (well, run) on Sunday 26th March 2017!

So ear-mark it in your diary, add it to your phone and keep your eye on the website here as we’ll be opening the entries soon enough!

Thanks ladies – we’re already looking forward to seeing you then : )
