All being well, Summer Larmer 2021 is set to see the full return of White Star Running events in all their usual glory! However, even if the current restrictions did stay in place a little longer, we still have something pretty special lined up for you for this event.
The Summer Larmer races are set in the wonderful Rushmore Estate. If you’ve not done the Spring Larmer before, the races are challenging and the scenery is magical. To complement the summer races, the team at Rushmore Estate have asked us to provide a Wellness Festival. This will showcase some other outdoor activities, and local providers will be exhibiting skills that will help give you a boost alongside your running.
During the event weekend (Saturday 31st July – Sunday 1st August) you can take part in a series of FREE additional activities. There will be options for both adults and children, so why not book camping on-site to make the most of everything on offer?
Races available include a marathon, half-marathon, 8-mile, 10-mile and kids’ races. Entries are still available, so make sure you book as we expect it to be popular!
What activities will the Wellness Festival include?
We have activities to suit everyone as part of this Wellness Festival.
To start with, why not prep yourself for your race with a fast-feet warm up with Run Teach?
There will be both kids’ and adult taster yoga sessions thanks to Om and Me Yoga.
Active Therapy South will be available to diagnose any niggles or twinges you might have by offering a 15-minute consultation.
Run Fit Fordingbridge will be there providing post-race massage, some ladies’ run/walk sessions and a stretch class over the weekend.
The Jurassic Coast Trust will be co-ordinating a children’s treasure hunt, football activities and fossil discovery, as well as being on hand to talk about our Run Jurassic trail running festival happening in September.
Italk, a psychology therapy service, will be on-site to talk about simple ways to maintain your mental fitness.
And if you want to do some shopping while you’re there, our own White Star Clothing will have a stall, along with FLANCI Activewear and Leaping Fish, who produces premium skin balms using all-natural ingredients.
The best bit all these activities are FREE – yes, you heard us, FREE. We want you to come along with your family and camp, take part in a race, maybe two, and get involved in some other activities we’ve got on site.
Race numbers are limited, and we can’t add any further capacity as the medals have been ordered. Make sure you don’t miss out on this summer extravaganza: https://whitestarrunning.co.uk/wsr-events/summer-larmer-2021/
