We’re delighted to announce that Waltham Cross have joined our Hertfordshire-wide campaign to get towns active. Our local partners, the charity CHEXS, are organising their first ever Your Town Get-Together 2km Run that is guaranteed to be fun for ALL the family.
All profits from ticket sales are donated directly to CHEXS, to support all of the fantastic work they do with children and families that you can learn more about below.
The route involves a 1KM loop, starting and finishing in Waltham Cross High Street. This event is suitable for ALL abilities and ages, with a buggy-friendly route and the opportunity to run as a family whilst raising money for a great local cause.
We encourage everyone to join us in town on the day of the event to cheer the runners on and get involved in bringing a positive energy to Waltham Cross.

How CHEXS is different:
CHEXS utilises a unique model to build strong families that contribute to a thriving community. By working with the whole family, CHEXS helps parents build strong, positive relationships and trust with their child. In turn, we work with young people through a variety of innovative projects designed to build self-esteem, team-work, problem-solving and tangible skills. The projects instil a sense of purpose, meaning and aspirations for the future. Our focus on resilience equips young people to face everyday challenges and achieve their potential for a better future.
