We’re back! After the great support for last year’s virtual Spring Chicken run, we’re excited to be going ahead with an actual race – slightly later in the year as the planned lockdown easing takes effect – a ‘Summer Chicken Run’ perhaps!
Join us on Sunday, 27th June 2021 for a multi terrain run on gently undulating roads and farm tracks (oh and one hill!) in south Worcestershire Countryside, with a choice of a 10K, 5K or 1K.
It’s still on
In light of the government announcement to delay the move to Step 4, we can confirm that the Pendock Spring Chicken Run is still going ahead as planned on Sunday 27th June.
We will be putting in protective measures to remain Covid-secure, keeping participants and volunteers safe, including starting the race in waves.
Further information will be sent out in due course, but until then we hope that your training is going well.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
All the best,
Pendock Spring Chicken Run Race Team

Supporting Pendock Primary School
All profits from the race go to Pendock CE Primary School to help fund various initiatives to improve the school. Here are some highlights of what the money has helped the school with:
2018: New Kitchen
In 2018, profits went towards the project to build a new school kitchen providing better cooking facilities for school children.
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 helped raise money to buy IT equipment for the school to aid teaching and learning.
2013: Solar Schools Project
The inaugural race helped the school to reach their fundraising target to fit solar panels through the Solar Schools project. 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.
