Organiser's Description

Following the popular Croome Capability Canter, the Black Pear Joggers will be returning after sunset on Wednesday 20th December for a fun 6 mile head torch run, with cake, mulled wine and tea/coffee after.

The route follows much of the original Croome Capability Canter route, avoiding the wooded areas, but taking in a section around the lake and over the bridge to the Island Pavilion. The uphill start will be avoided, you may be pleased to know!

The event is not timed and is more of a group run rather than a race, but you are free to run as fast as you like and time the run yourself. Please bring spare clothes/shoes and warm layers to change into after as it will be cold and muddy in places, and potentially wet underfoot.

Although this isn't a race, we do have some medals available on a limited basis. You can choose from the following depending on availability, or choose not to have a medal if you're not bothered...

First 49 entrants: Runners taking part can receive a medal as a memento for taking part. There are a limited number of  bespoke Croome medals from the 2023 race. View the Croome medal

Remaining entrants: Can receive one of the Wild One 2023 10th race medals.  View the Wild One medal.

Profits raised from the event will be split between the National Trust, to help maintain Croome Park, and our club's nominated charities; Worcester Breast cancer unit and Look. 

Please ensure you arrive by 6pm for a pre-run safety briefing and ensure you bring a working head torch.

For runners wishing to run a shorter distance, there is a 3 mile and 5 mile cut off.
