Welcome to the Fishbourne Flat Fives website.
The Fishbourne Flat Five is scheduled to be run on
Sunday 20th September 2015 at 9am – An hour earlier than normal!
ONLINE ENTRY and POSTAL FORMS are now available in the Entry Form menu above
The Fishbourne Flat Five is one of the most picturesque, scenic and flat cross country races on the south coast for runners and walkers.
The race is held in Memory of Beckie and Lucy Hassell who were tragically killed in a car accident in October 2005.
Please sign up below to our newsletter to get the latest information on this years race and the results afterwards.
Online Entry is available again this year as we strive to cut down on paperwork ! We will be using PayPal for electronic payment (Paypal, or any Credit/Debit Card), although you can still enter the old fashioned way by post!
This years beneficiary will be Fishbourne Pre-School, who are looking to raise funds for a Children’s Working Kitchen to go in the new planned Pre-School Extension.
Just as importantly, Fishbourne Pre-School need help and assistance to assist the Fishbourne Flat Five in running the event, so if you or anyone you know can spare some time either in advance or on the day itself, please let us know. You can help out in the following ways:
· Pre-event administration (eg assisting the committee with co-ordinating helpers)
· Marshalling (eg car parking, race, walk)
· Taking photos around the event
· Helping out on the start desk (eg handing out runners numbers, taking entry money and forms from people who enter on the day)
· Helping out on the walk finish line (eg handing out certificates and medals and lots of cheering!)
· Manning water stations around the route
· Sponsorship (eg water, children’s medals and certificates)
This really is a wonderful opportunity for the whole community to come together and a very exciting prospect that is made even more special by the fact that the children themselves would play a very big part in helping to ensure that the legacy of Beckie and Lucy will long continue.
So please, if you can help in any way, or you would like to know more, Fishbourne Pre-School would love to hear from you. Please if you wish to help with any of the above.
