About the race
A hedgehog is a small mammal that has been around for about 15 million years and is one of the cutest animals you’ll ever see. How's hedgehog named? The 'Hedge' part of their name comes from where they build their nests hedges. The ‘hog’ part comes from the small grunting sound they make which is similar to a warthog.
Hedgehogs have around 5000 spiked spines on their backs, which are known as quills, and each one typically lasts around one year. Their spines are use for defense, sleep and when they face enemies. By curling into a tight ball and tucking in their heads, tail and legs, they protect vulnerable parts of their body.
Do you know that hedgehogs are actually quite fast covering about 6 feet per second when hunting for food and can travel up to 3km per hour, that's a long way for little legs. We all know that there is no one giant step that does it, it's a lot of little steps. Together with hedgehogs, let's start our little big run!!

Tips to stay safe and healthy while running:
- Buy running-specific shoes that offer strong arch and ankle support. Swap out your running shoes every 800 - 1000km.
- Run in safe, well-lit areas. Look for popular trails, tracks, and parks where you can run near your home or office.
- Watch out for tripping hazards, like rocks, crevices, tree branches, and uneven surfaces.
- Avoid the 'peak hour' periods to reduce your risk of inhaling air pollution from vehicles. If possible, schedule your runs for either the early morning or the evening.
- If you’re new to running, start out at a comfortable, slow pace that’s conversational. You can build up speed from there. You can also alternate between running and walking to start.
- Make sure you warm-up and stretch thoroughly before you head out. Cool your body down with light stretches when you return.
- Drink plenty of water while you run. If you’re going out for a longer run, look for running routes near you that have water fountains or somewhere you can leave a water bottle.
- Refuel with a snack or light meal within 45 to 60 minutes after your run.
- Allow at least one or two complete rest days per week to avoid overtraining, which may cause injury.
