5k/10k Run

New Route featuring beautiful Sherborne scenery - Official timing chips - Finisher prizes for all

17th March 2024

Our picturesque but challenging route loops it's way around the streets of Sherborne before heading out into our beautiful surrounding countryside and finishing up running the home straight under our glorious Sherborne Abbey.

We will be using official timing chips, and with a new course this year, there are new records to be set!

All abilities welcome with friends and family encouraged to support by cheering you on with a coffee from our incredible on site Hub Cafe which will be open for refreshments on the day.
