Events

Sherborne 5km series

Our very first and most popular event. Throughout the year we host our 5km series at The Terrace Playing Fields in Sherborne with entrants running or walking to raise awareness of, and funds for, local charities. Half of the profits are donated to the chosen charity whilst the rest is used for future event planning, making our events programme bigger and better year on year!

Beginners are especially welcome, and there are no time limits to worry about as everyone completes the 5km event at their own speed. Watch your 5km time improve over the year. We have fabulous medals for each event and offer great support.

The beautiful route is signposted, taking in sights of Sherborne Castle, Sherborne Abbey, and other historic buildings around the town. We are lucky to have such fantastic volunteers who marshal, making our event safe and friendly for everyone.

We now offer a 10km option once a year, for those who wish to try something a little more challenging in the not-to-distant future! 

Get fit, support a charity, collect your medals and have fun!

Sportive

Our popular Sportive, hosted by our friends at The Story Pig near Sandford Orcas, is a wonderful event for all the family. For anyone 16+ we offer a 15, 30 or 50-mile cycle ride, starting and finishing at the Story Pig taking in some of the most scenic views in Dorset and Somerset. Country lanes make the route quieter and safer away from the busy roads, which we have tried to avoid. The event is signposted throughout whilst there is also, for the more technically-minded, the option of downloading the route onto your Garmin – you won’t get lost!

Upon completion, all cyclists will receive a t-shirt and water bottle. The event doesn’t end with your cycle ride, as you then have the opportunity to sit in the beautiful surroundings of The Story Pig whilst enjoying their open farm day. Live music, hog roast, gelato, cider, and good company help to make the day one to remember.

Triathlon

Our sprint triathlon at Leweston School is suitable for anyone aged 16+. The distance is aimed at both novice and experienced triathletes wanting to improve speed and transition. The pool swim is 400m, the cycle is 20km, and the run 5km. The cycle ride has a bit of everything. Beautiful views and undulating route all help provide a challenging yet enjoyable course for all. The 5km run takes in the stunning grounds of Leweston School and is fairly flat. All sign-ups will receive a t-shirt and medal upon completion. Race packs will be emailed to you with all the information you need.

Colour Run

Our colour run is also located at Leweston School and will cover 5km within the school grounds. All sign-ups will receive a pack containing the information you need and on the day you will be given a white t-shirt for the event. As you walk or run there will be a series of colour stations. When you pass these stations expect to be covered from head to toe in all the colours under the rainbow! Once the race is completed you will receive your medal and head towards the ‘post-run paint party’ where there will be music, refreshments, and a variety of entertainment on offer!
