IMPORTANT UPDATE (Friday 25th June)

Dear Runners and Volunteers, 

 

Apologies for the lateness of this update and it is with a heavy heart that I'm writing to you regarding the Pendock Spring/Summer Chicken Run. 

 

Unfortunately, at school, we have had to close one of our bubbles for the first time in 15 months due to positive lateral flow test results of Covid-19. We were informed on Thursday (24th June), so the bubble affected have not been in school today (Friday 25th June). The whole bubble (25 children and 3 staff) is isolating until we receive confirmation through PCR tests, acting on instruction from Public Health.

 

As much as we were looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday, I feel that holding a mass running event on school site, relying on volunteers from the local and wider community, would not be the responsible thing to do, for both the local community and for the runners and volunteers. Therefore, the decision to cancel the race and offer a virtual race instead seems the practical option to take.

 

Runners will be able to submit their virtual race details using the form on the website and we will arrange collection points for goodie bags etc after July 9th. This will all be communicated by email/website, and we will do our best to find the joy in another virtual race. 

 

Thank you for your understanding, both now and for last year, and we appreciate everyone who is supporting this event and our school. It really does make a huge difference to the children and families of the community. 

 
Stay safe,

Race details

We're back! After the great support for last year's virtual Spring Chicken run, we're excited to be going ahead with an actual race - slightly later in the year as the planned lockdown easing takes effect - a 'Summer Chicken Run' perhaps!

Join us on Sunday, 27th June 2021 for a multi terrain run on gently undulating roads and farm tracks (oh and one hill!) in south Worcestershire Countryside, with a choice of a 10K, 5K or 1K. Proceeds will go to Pendock CE Primary School.

The format should remain the same as previous years. The main differences are that the start times are earlier and we may need to set off runners in smaller groups to spread the runners out. The event will be held under an England Athletics licence and following government Covid Secure guidelines to keep everyone safe.

10K Race
Starts at 10:00am
£11 affiliated / £13 unaffiliated entry (entrants must be aged 15 or over on race day)
