Smiles on a midsummer's day at the Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble race

Snodsbury Scoot And Scramble Is Back!

The scenic, multi-terrain race returns with all profits going to charity.

Second time around for the Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble on Sunday 18 June in a location described as a “Jewel in Worcestershire” on the Upton Snodsbury website. There are two off-road races, certificates and prizes and a bespoke medal plus goodies for all at this not-for-profit event.

The Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble made a successful midsummer debut in 2021 and, as a result, funds raised by the event helped pay for new swings for Upton Snodsbury Park. Much to the delight of the Upton Snodsbury Parish Recreational Association (USPRA) which is the park charity and works hard to ensure it is enjoyed by the community. The swings were officially opened on Saturday 11 February and proved to be a hit with local children.

Monies from this year’s Scoot and Scramble will be split between USPRA and the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust.

This event is an ideal way to explore beautiful countryside in Worcestershire whilst supporting two worthy causes. There is the 1.2K Scoot for youngsters aged 16 years and under at 9.45am followed by the 10K Scramble at 11am.

Speedy juniors complete a circular lap of a private field with marshal support, racing to their hearts content for certificates awarded to the first 3 in each of the four age groups.

Then it’s the turn of the Scramblers who face a course with a bit of everything: bridlepaths, footpaths, tracks and meadows along with several gates and styles to navigate. There is signage in place with marshals at key points and prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female.

Both are fun and challenging runs on courses which include footpaths and private land with permission granted to access this on race day thanks to local landowners.

Places are limited to 200 for the Scramble and 50 for the Scoot so don’t leave it too long to enter!
