Run the Virtual Stilton Stumble in vital support of their charities
The charitable, cheese-loving Stilton Stumble has gone virtual and is open for entries.
Stilton Stumble 10K has had a virtual makeover for 2020 and entries have opened for this event that raises funds for two designated charities – 1st Cropwell Bishop Scout Group and Cropwell Bishop Friends of the School.
In normal times, this tasty 10K is known for its scenic course which passes through the cheese-making villages of Cropwell Bishop and Colston Bassett in Northamptonshire. It starts and finishes in Cropwell Bishop which is home to the Creamery and its award winning Blue Stilton, White Stilton and Blue Shropshire. The race is designed to be friendly and accessible to runners of all abilities who make the most of an attractive route on quiet country roads and are rewarded for their efforts with a medal and goody bag containing a nice wedge of Stilton.
This year would have been the 8th outing for the popular race that had to be shelved due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, the organisers weren’t going to crumble in the face of adversity and devised this virtual event where runners choose their own 10K route. They run (or walk) the distance at their own pace and on a day to suit them between 18 July and 11 October and submit evidence. A commemorative medal will be sent to every finisher.
All profits from the event will go to the Cropwell Scouts and Friends of the School who like other charities, are struggling as donations and fundraising events have fallen/stopped during this pandemic. They are a vital part of the community and the organisers are determined to help hence this virtual 10K.
