THE Laddsworth Night Fun Run-Walk has grown over the years from 300 entrants in 2012 to 755 entrants in 2015.

This growth can be attributed to the fact that the staff and parents of Laddsworth work together to organise a safe, fun-filled event for the whole family.

The six-kilometre route starts at Laddsworth, then weaves through the streets of Hilton and the St Anne’s College wetlands, and finishes back at Laddsworth. There is a shorter route of about four kilometres, available for younger children and grandparents. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, 15 June at 6pm at Laddsworth Primary, 1 Winstead Road, Hilton.

For more information, contact Shamaine Rajah at 033 343 3256, extension 4. Entry forms on the website www. laddsworth.co.za.

Participants must remember to dress in luminous gear, as the theme is “glow in the dark”. Headlamps are encouraged.
