Important update (Friday 25th June)
Dear Runners and Volunteers,
Apologies for the lateness of this update and it is with a heavy heart that I'm writing to you regarding the Pendock Spring/Summer Chicken Run.
Unfortunately, at school, we have had to close one of our bubbles for the first time in 15 months due to positive lateral flow test results of Covid-19. We were informed on Thursday (24th June), so the bubble affected have not been in school today (Friday 25th June). The whole bubble (25 children and 3 staff) is isolating until we receive confirmation through PCR tests, acting on instruction from Public Health.
As much as we were looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday, I feel that holding a mass running event on school site, relying on volunteers from the local and wider community, would not be the responsible thing to do, for both the local community and for the runners and volunteers. Therefore, the decision to cancel the race and offer a virtual race instead seems the practical option to take.
Runners will be able to submit their virtual race details and we will arrange collection points for goodie bags etc after July 9th. This will all be communicated by email/website, and we will do our best to find the joy in another virtual race.
Thank you for your understanding, both now and for last year, and we appreciate everyone who is supporting this event and our school. It really does make a huge difference to the children and families of the community.
Pendock CE Primary School
Join us on Sunday, 27th June 2021 for a multi terrain run on gently undulating roads and farm tracks in south Worcestershire Countryside, with a choice of a 10K, 5K or 1K. Proceeds will go to Pendock CE Primary School. Receive free entry into a raffle with your race number. You can enter online, or by completing the printable postal entry form. Entries are limited for all the races, so please don’t leave it too late to enter.
On the day, registration will be open between 8am and 9:30am for runners to collect numbers (until 9am for the 1K).
We will not be accepting any entries on the day to make things run smoother and ensure results can be processed efficiently after the race. You can enter online up until the day before the race if the race is not full.
Race Start Times
The 10K starts at 10am, with the 5K starting shortly after at 10:05am. The 1K starts at 9:30am allowing enough time if you want to run the 1K with a child before running the 5K/10K.
Goodies and Prizes
The best bit about taking part! Medals will be given out to all finishers as well as post-race goodies.
Themed prizes will be given out to winners of the race and fun runs.
