Celebrating Community and Championing Change at Curlys Athlete’s Big School Run

Curly’s Athletes’ Big School Run is back, promising a day filled with extraordinary determination, community spirit and heartfelt support. 

Set against the scenic backdrop of Worksop College, this unique 12-hour running event is not just a test of endurance but a testament to the power of collective effort. 

This year, we are thrilled to have an incredible lineup of participants who will be raising funds for Active Fusion’s When You Tri campaign, a noble cause aiming to raise £100,000. This campaign is dedicated to ensuring that children, especially those living in poverty, have access to essential physical activity, promoting their overall health and happiness. 

Relay Team 

Lindsy James, Owen James, Dave McLeavy, Steve McLeavy, James Osbourne, Chris Ward and Andrew Teasdale. These athletes will be running in a relay, each bringing their unique energy and dedication to the course. Support them here. 


Dynamic duo Adelle Marsden and Helen Colton will run side by side, their synergy and shared goal embodying the spirit of the event. Support their fundraising efforts here. 


Joanne Bates will take on the challenge solo, showcasing remarkable personal commitment and resilience. Another solo runner, Oliver Fleetwood’s determination and passion will surely inspire many. Head to their fundraising page here. 

The When You Tri campaign addresses a pressing issue: too many children lack access to the physical activity essential for a healthy childhood. This often leads to situations of both physical and mental ill-health. Every penny raised by our runners during the Big School Run will contribute to creating lasting change, fostering environments where young people can thrive. 

Come join us at Worksop College on the 3rd of August. Cheer for our runners, contribute to a vital cause and be a part of something greater. If you’re interested in running to fundraise for When You Tri, it’s not too late! Get in touch with Lindsy James at lindsy@activefusion.org.uk today. 

By participating in or supporting this event, you are not merely contributing to a fundraiser; you are joining a movement. Together, we can make a tangible difference, transforming the lives of young people and building a healthier, happier future for all.
