ENTRIES to a trail run through some of Worcestershire's most beautiful countryside close on Sunday, May 21, organisers warn.

The 10k Bredon Cricket Club Tower Run starts and finishes at the picturesque club, near Pershore, on Sunday, May 28.

The marshalled route follows pretty country lanes, tracks and paths to the 299m summit of Bredon Hill.

The hilltop is marked by an Iron Age fort and the 18th-century Parson’s Folly tower, and it boasts glorious views of the surrounding countryside.

Entry costs £10 and includes a pre-race warm-up led by a qualified Zumba instructor.

After the run, which starts at 10am, participants and their families and friends will enjoy musical entertainment at the club from the Malvern Hillbillies, who specialise in old-time Americana music.

There will also be a barbecue, and the club's licensed bar will be open. There will be a bouncy castle for younger children.

All entrants receive a finisher’s medal, and there will be trophies for first male finisher, first female finisher and first male and female member of Bredon Cricket Club to finish.

Run organiser Jennie Warren said: “We are delighted by how many people will be joining us for the tower run. It is going to be a fabulous day.

"But anyone still thinking about taking part shouldn't leave it much longer, because our online entry system closes on Sunday."

Money raised will go to Bredon Cricket Club and the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
