Supporting Pendock Primary School
Proceeds from the race go to Pendock CE Primary School to help fund various initiatives to improve the school.
2015: Lighting and Raised Beds
The 2015 race raised money to help install energy efficient LED lighting and raised beds for growing plants with the children.
2014: IT Equipment
The second year’s races helped raise money to buy IT equipment for the school to aid teaching and learning.
2013: Solar Schools Project
The inaugral race helped Pendock CE Primary School to reach their target of over £9,000 of their Solar Schools project. The money was raised to fit solar panels to the roof of the school. It not only creates an income for a school for years to come but enables the school, and their pupils, to become real ambassadors for a clean energy future.
The school hit their target after 18 weeks of hard work and had the 6.24kwH solar panel system fitted in May 2013. The system has been working well, with Pendock receiving their first feed-in-tariff payment of £625.53 in December 2013, which was used to buy resources for the kids. Also, in August 2013, electricity usage was only 23% compared to previous year. As of January 2014 the school has generated 4,457 kWh and achieved a CO2 prevention of 2674.2 Kg.

Feedback from previous races
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of happy people. Lots of marshals. Lovely atmosphere. The route is rural with views to the Malvern Hills and a variety of surfaces. Just enough of a challenge but not overwhelming.J. Rose
I really enjoyed the 10k run. The course was beautiful and well planned, the marshalls were great and I loved being able to be a part of it on the day. Give yourselves a big cheer – I’ll be back next year!K. Clark
Well organised and arranged race, it was great that it was aimed at the children as well, great atmosphere, facilities were well provided including plenty of water stations. Would run again (even with the hill).R. Plews
