The 32nd Calne Rotary Bowood Fun Run
Sunday 29th March 2020 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm. CANCELLED in 2020
This annual charity fun run was organised by Calne Rotary Club. The event was due to take place in March 2020 but due to the outbreak of Covid-19, it was cancelled. The venue boasts some fantastic scenery around the beautiful Bowood estate grounds and we will update details of future runs when we have further information.
This friendly Fun Run and Walk caters for a wide range of participants, including serious club runners, joggers, keep-fit enthusiasts and walkers who would like to enjoy a few hours in the fresh air in picturesque Bowood Park.
We encourage participants to raise money for their own chosen charity by requesting sponsorship from family and friends.
The race is multi-terrain, starting on tarmac which is ideal for runners to find their legs and spread out before a cross country section, along the golf course and tracks through the woods. The last two miles are in open countryside, alongside Bowood lake and Bowood house before a short sprint to the finish.
At the finish station there will be water bottles and bananas available for all participants. Refreshments are on sale in the Bowood Cafe, where bacon butties are always very popular.
The Rotary Club is a major supporter of CWC and we are very grateful for their donations every year, following their hard work and commitment to organising this great day.

Calne Welfare Charities took part in the town-wide Open Doors Day (part of the Calne Heritage Week) again last year. We welcomed visitors for a free tour around the charming and historic Almshouses on Kingsbury Street, where two of the cottages were open to the public. There were light refreshments available inside one of the cottages. We are extremely grateful for the generous donations given on the day. Many thanks to all who attended.
