Hainault Forest Country Park

The Fun Run

Welcome to the Annual Al-Noor Fun Run. The fun run is a great outdoor experience to run and a great way for adults and kids to raise funds for charity. It’s your way of supporting an amazing school project that has been supporting the east London community for over 15 years.

Run, walk or skip… it’s not a race so you don’t have to be an athlete to join in! The Fun Run is suitable for all ages and abilities, so you can take part as a family, bring the kids and have a fun family day out.


Hainault Forest Country Park is one of Redbridge’s Green Flag Award open spaces. It is a large park with woodlands and a variety of activities to take part in. The park covers more than 300 acres, with a fishing lake, Zoo, guided walks, bridleways and the recently opened Nature Trail. The birds and insects in this ancient wood pasture are of national importance.
