Throughout the year Active Enfield organise an exciting sports programme including:

  • London Youth Games - a pan London competition spanning 30 sports and 50 events, that begins in November and culminates in finals weekend in July each year. Disability competitions include football (male and female), swimming (male and female), boccia, tennis, basketball, athletics and indoor rowing
  • Mini Marathon - trials take place each March with a view to selecting 36 young people to represent Enfield at the London Mini Marathon held in April.
  • Night Hike - 2017 saw the 7th annual Night Hike event which raises money for local cancer charities and those affected by cancer within the Borough. Working in partnership with Nightingale Cancer Support Service Active Enfield have raised over £100,000 for this fantastic charity. The route is 15km and covers a large area of the Borough, starting and finishing at the Civic Centre in Enfield Town. We offer a different theme each year to keep the event fun and interesting!
  • Mayor's Charity Fun Run - an annual event run at Forty Hall and Estate, with a 3km walk, 3km run and 10km run to cater for all needs. All money raised is in aid of the Mayor's chosen charity/ies for that year. The event is held mid-September and sees a turnout of over 600 participants.
  • Announcements about each of these events will be made via the What's On and Sports Opportunities of the website so please check back here!

    We believe that Leisure and Culture is an important and valued part of community life in our borough. It not only brings vitality, life and vibrancy to Enfield’s community, it also provides lifelong enjoyment. To see how Active Enfield is working towards this over the next few years take a look at our Leisure and Culture Strategy 2015-2020
