Hand crafted medal for the new Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble event

Summer scamper at Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble

A lovely route to explore at this new, multi-terrain event.

A brand new off-road 10K (and a bit) is coming to Upton Snodsbury on Sunday 26 June along with a 1.3K race for children. Enjoy a picturesque run in the countryside whilst helping to raise funds for a local charity and be rewarded with a hand crafted medal.  

The Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble is the perfect race for a midsummer’s day and the choice of two races means families can take part as well as individuals. They are held on a multi-terrain course with prizes and certificates to aim for and participants can treat themselves afterwards to a well earned cake (or several!). 

The Park is managed by the Upton Snodsbury Parish Recreational Association (USPRA) – a small charity that works hard to maintain this green space and its facilities to a high standard for the benefit of the local community. All profits from this event go to USPRA to assist with the costs of a new set of swings for the Park.

The Scoot is open to youngsters aged 5 to 16 years who complete a single lap of a private field. Parents are welcome to run with their children and there are certificates for the top three runners in four age groups. It starts at 9.45am. 

This is followed by the 6.5 mile Scramble at 11am which takes runners on a marked and marshalled tour of Upton Snodsbury on a mixture of footpaths, tracks, meadows and bridlepath. The course includes stiles and gates and a bridge along with a water station at half way: prizes for the first three men and women and a medal for each finisher. 

The course is a favourite with Race Director Natasha Dent who is looking forward to the inaugural event saying: “I am very excited to welcome you to a beautiful part of Worcestershire.” 

Places are limited to 50 in The Scoot and 200 in The Scramble so get your skates on!

Sign up for the Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble via Entry Central.
