Croome by Night

Following the popular Croome Capability Canter in November, the Black Pear Joggers will be returning after sunset Tuesday, 20th December 2022 at 6:15pm for a fun head torch run, with cake, mulled wine and tea/coffee after.

The route

The route follows much of the original Croome Capability Canter route, avoiding the wooded areas, but taking in a section around the lake and over the bridge to the Island Pavilion. The uphill start will be avoided, you may be pleased to know! For runners wishing to run a shorter distance, there is a 3 mile and 5 mile cut off.

Fun night run

The event is not timed and is more of a group run rather than a race, but you are free to run as fast as you like and time the run yourself. Please bring spare clothes/shoes and warm layers to change into after as it will be cold, muddy in places and potentially wet underfoot.

Sign up to the event

Entry is only £8. All runners will receive a medal, complimentary cake, mulled wine and tea/coffee after. Profits raised from the event will be split between the National Trust to help maintain Croome Park and our club's nominated charity: St Paul's Hostel Worcester.

Further information

Please ensure you arrive by 6pm for a pre-run safety briefing and ensure you bring a working head torch.

There are toilets and plenty of parking. There's no bag storage, but you're welcome to leave things at your own risk in the canteen (volunteers are there throughout). You can use the toilets to change clothes.

If you still have further questions, please get in touch.
