Return of the Minithon

4 February 2015

Fun event is back to raise vital funds

The AFC Wimbledon Minithon will return on Sunday, 19 April, with people of all ages and abilities welcome to enter the fun event.

Organised by the Dons Trust fundraising group, this year’s event will take place at Wimbledon Park and it will cover a distance of 5 km, without hills to contend with!

Haydon the Womble will be taking on a challenge of a different kind this time around after competing in mascot races over the years and Chief Executive Erik Samuelson will also be taking part.

AFC Wimbledon Sports Scientist Jason Moriarty (pictured), a man who puts first-team players through their paces on a daily basis, has vowed to defend his crown after winning the last staging of the event in 2012.

Alongside the Minithon, there will be various activities designed to attract Dons supporters and the local community, including a beat-the-goalie attraction, face painting and other stalls.

The AFC Wimbledon Foundation will apply the proceeds to its Healthy Living Programme, to be operated at the club’s training ground over the summer for supporters and the local community. Sponsorship proceeds will go to the AFC Wimbledon Foundation, the charity established by the club.

There will be an entry fee of £10 (£5 for under 14s) to take part in this event.  In the meantime, if you wish to register your interest in this event, please contact  Further details will be announced in the near future.
