Bracknell Samaritans Teddy Bear Kids Run

Bracknell Samaritans Teddy Bear Kids Run – 27th June 2020

Children up to 8 years old can follow our real life big teddy Sam and run, jog or toddle around our 1k course!

Back by popular demand, the Bracknell Samaritans Teddy Bear Kids Run gives your children the chance to take part in a ‘real race’, just like mum & dad! This fun, memorable children’s running event will help boost your children’s confidence & help promote a healthy & active lifestyle.


The Bracknell Samaritans Teddy Bear Kids Run will be just like the grown-up’s races, except for the chip timing. All children taking part in the Teddy Bear Kids Run will have their own running bib and will receive a medal and refreshments at the end of their run. The Teddy Bear Kids Run will start and finish via the race arch, where our official Bracknell Samaritans Run photographer will be located.


In 2019, we had over 120 children take part in the Bracknell Samaritans Teddy Bear Kids Run. Why not encourage your little ones to come along and have some fun too?! Maybe they would like to bring their own teddy or favourite soft toy along for the ride!

Fundraising for Bracknell Samaritans

The annual Bracknell Samaritans Run is the biggest fundraiser for our local Samaritans branch, based in Bracknell. If every entrant for the 5k or 10k run could fundraise £25, we could raise enough money to keep our local Samaritans branch operating for over 6 months! Could you help raise an additional £25? We are very grateful for your support.

Regretfully we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Bracknell Samaritans Run due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.


This is not a decision we have taken lightly as it will have a significant impact on our fund-raising once again but as I am sure you will appreciate it is very difficult to plan anything with any certainty in the current climate whilst maintaining the necessary levels of health & safety for all those involved. 

We will be in touch with everyone who has already entered over the next few days to discuss the options available. Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support of our charity.

We hope to see you at our 40th event on Saturday 25th June 2022. Please save the date!!

In the meantime, we hope you all keep well and stay safe.
