Free range runners at the Pendock Spring Chicken Run

No Ruffled Feathers for the Pendock Spring Chicken Run

There is still time to enter this popular community event.

Less than two weeks to go to the Pendock Spring Chicken Run on Sunday 27 March and everyone is looking forward to its return after two years of disruption caused by Covid-19. A choice of three distances, scenic route and post-race goodies are amongst the treats in store at this charity event. 

The pandemic caused the previous two Chicken Runs to be held as virtual events but this year it is back as a live race and runners of all ages and abilities are welcome to join in the fun. All proceeds go to Pendock CE Primary School to help fund a variety of projects for the benefit of its pupils. 

There is a 10K and 5K plus a 1K Fun Run for children: the 1K is at 10.30am allowing sufficient time for an adult to run with their son or daughter before having a go at the 10K or 5K which start at 11am. Chicken themed fancy dress is encouraged!

Leaving Pendock CE Primary School, the 10K and 5K runners follow a picturesque, multi-terrain course consisting of undulating roads (gentle!) and farm tracks through the South Worcestershire countryside. There is a hill on the 10K with stunning views across the Malvern Hills so well worth the climb – especially on a clear day - and both races include a sprint across the finish line at the Primary School. 

10K, 5K and 1K winners receive themed prizes; all finishers will be presented with a medal and goodies. 

Easter may still be some way off but an ‘egg-cellent’ day is guaranteed at this family-friendly event. 

More information about the event and how to enter can be found at the Pendock Spring Chicken Run website.
