Burn Events is owned and managed by dedicated running, walking and fitness fanatics Ben Newman and his brother Matthew Newman. Their wives are heavily involved too. Bens, Gemma and Matts wife, Alison are also keen sports enthusiasts. Alison is a highly accomplished rower and an all rounder fit person. Gemma played badminton at a high level and is into most sports. She is currently training for the London Marathon just a year after having her first child with Ben.
Matthew is part of Gloucester AC and a very decent runner having run anything and everything from a 5k to a marathon, and in very good times too. Ben set up a local running club called the Hucclecte Harriers and in just two years had well over 475 members. It is a community based running club which is completely free for all users.
So why Burn Events? firstly the name minus the ‘U’ was Bens initials! However, it lends itself quite nicely to the burn you get when you exercise. There is nothing better than pushing yourself and seeing what levels of stamina you have. The physical and mental challenges you face when pushing yourself in sports relates to your whole life. That physical and mental stamina can get you through most things in life. You may not be the fastest or the best, but accomplishing something you thought of as impossible is the best feeling in the world. As they say, “It’s the finish line that matters, not the finish time.” That is very true of the Burn Events ethos. We welcome anyone and everyone to our events. Everyone needs to take that first step into a race at some point which can be daunting if you’ve not done it before, but rest assured that all abilities are catered for by us and you will never be made to feel anything less than welcome. So come on! Step forward and have a go!
At Burn Events we cater for running events, mud runs, walking events and soon hope to encourage dog running and walking too with canicross. Some events are off road and are on steep and challenging terrain, others are on road and flat. Each event will be clearly stated as to what type it is before you sign up. We offer varying distances too. Some events will be as little as 5k while others will be much further.
Our events are all timed using the latest chip-timing technology. Participants wear a race number on their front which we supply and is unique to them and holds a small microchip on the back. As you cross the start and finish line your time is recorded.
All walkers and runners get a medal upon completion and we always strive to bring you a few free goodies too.
We really look forward to meeting you.
