About the Race

We run the event to raise money for charity, and give most of profits to local sporting related causes. In 2013 we gave grants to Blakedown Colts FC, the Hansel & Gretel support group for children with special need, Churchill & Blakedown Short Mat Bowling Club and Heart UK.
All finishers get a unique Blakedown Bolt memento, which is a genuine bolt. We chose this to be a little different to other events and to reflect the traditional forging and tool-making industry that began locally in the 1700’s.
There’s a Licensed Bar, refreshments and BBQ from 6.30pm and after the race.
