Dorridge Fun is a special day for everyone: whole families, runners, cyclists and walkers.

Everyone, no matter their ability, can take part in the Dorridge Fun Run, and spectators and supporters will enjoy watching. All in complete safety on traffic free roads, there is a choice of 3 or 8 mile distances through beautiful Warwickshire countryside where you can run, walk or cycle. In fact, any form of non-motorised transport is allowed – and actively encouraged. This is an event that can be enjoyed by absolutely everyone from serious runners and occasional joggers to children, whole families, babes in pushchairs, senior citizens and even pets.

Local favourite comedian, Malcolm Stent, will start the action at 10.15 (cycles) and 10.30 (runners and walkers) the route follows a figure-of-eight shaped course through Darley Green, Packwood, Chessetts Wood and Bakers Lane finishing up again at St Philip’s. The event is under overall police supervision. All roads are closed, fully marshalled and signposted with water stations and a full St John Ambulance presence.

All participants must register and pay entry fees beforehand (it is not possible to enter on the day). It is highly recommended to register well in advance as numbers are limited. (To register click here)

 There is ample parking (large and signposted car park within walking distance) and the start is easily accessed by public transport (Dorridge railway station is merely 400 yards distant). Men’s and women’s changing facilities are available.

 Dorridge Fun Run is organised by local church St Philip’s Dorridge and St James’ Bentley Heath as a service to the community. The event is no-profit making and 100% of entry fees go to the nominated charities below.
