A WORCESTERSHIRE cricket club is again staging its challenging 10k trail run.

Bredon Cricket Club's Tower Run is returning for the third time, after growing entry numbers year on year.

It starts and finishes at the picturesque club near Pershore at 10am on Sunday, May 26.

The marshalled 10k route follows 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 £15 and includes a pre-race warm-up.

After the run, participants and their families and friends can enjoy some live music with Joel Darkes and a barbecue at the cricket club, where the bar will be open. There will be a bouncy castle for younger children.

Later in the afternoon visitors will be invited to watch Bredon Cricket Club compete in a friendly 20-over match.

Money raised will be shared between the cricket club and the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, who will have a helicopter cockpit on display near the run’s start/finish line.

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

Cricket club chairman Neil Hall said: “It’s back! The popularity of Bredon Cricket Club Tower Run continues to grow, and we’re expecting to welcome even more runners to our beautiful course in 2019.
