Radio DJ and media personality Chris Evans has launched a new running and music festival.

Described as an event mixing "serious running with a serious party and line up of fantastic live music afterwards", the first ever RunFestRun will take place from 31 May until 2 June this year.

Held at the Grade I-listed Georgian country estate Bowood House and Gardens, the three-day festival – organised in partnership with Virgin Radio – has been designed as a family-friendly gathering which will promote physical activity.

Running routes range from an immersive 2.5k fun run through to a timed half marathon and will be supported by fitness and wellness classes.

There will also be inspirational talks with sporting legends and endurance runners.

“It’s been fantastic to launch RunFestRun,” Evans said.

“We want people to join us for a jam-packed weekend of running while having a great time outdoors with friends and family.

"Whether it is your first run or your hundredth, grab your trainers and join us for the nation’s big, new running party.”
