Following the success of its inaugural 5.3 Run Event in spring 2022, Wokingham-based charity First Days are holding another family running day at the Bracknell athletics track in the summer.

Why 5.3? Because there are over 5,300 children living in poverty in Wokingham Borough Council. First Days works hard to reduce this number, whilst supporting their families by providing the essentials they need to have fun, be safe and grow in confidence at school.

The 5.3 Run Event is open to all ages, with entrants being able to choose their own challenge based on the number 5.3.

For example:

  • Run 530 metres
  • Run 5.3 laps (2.1km)
  • Run 5.3km (13.25 laps)
  • Run 5.3 miles (21 laps)
  • Ultimate challenge – 53 laps, equivalent to a half marathon, which could be tackled as a relay with friends
  • Or come up with your own 5.3 run challenge!


New for this event:

  • Soft play equipment and games from First Days Toy Library available on the track in-field
  • Unholy Donuts on site for perfect event fuelling (pre, mid or post!)
  • Beer on tap from Phantom Brewery
  • Sir Whippy visiting during the afternoon
  • Spot prizes for most ‘on brand’ outfit, most unique take on 5.3 and smiliest child!
