The sell out "Great Sprout Scuttle" returns with all things festive and sprout based! So another excuse to put off the shopping and get running (its more fun!) 

5k and 10k off road trail event with a super sprouty Christmas theme plus the opportunity to fundraise for the events neighbours at the RSPCA, or even adopt an animal (we get very special animal guests attending! ) 

The scenery is amazing with some excellent  running surfaces. Taking in grassy fields, trail and wooded paths, a cheeky climb and gallops around the horse course. 

Plus, thanks to mother nature the occasional stream appears! (in 2018 we even built you a bridge!)

All finishing on the horse racing straight in front of your fans!

Based at the superb National Horse Racing College, Rossington Hall just off Bawtry Road, outside of Doncaster.

All finishers receive a specially designed Christmas sprout medal (In 2018 , we even won medal of the month with this, thanks to the Running Bible!) and cake at the finish plus plenty more festive themed elements!

How to help the doncaster rspca

Eat, drink and feel happy!


Curly's buys all the food for the event cafe and we donate it to the RSPCA team, the RSPCA team man the cafe. Thats means from the £2 you spend on £2 goes straight to the RSPCA. 

Any spare hotdogs goes next-door to the pups waiting to be adopted :) 

Make a Donation or fundraise


The RSPCA team do a truly amazing job of looking after the animals in their care. You'll probably bump into the team and some of the animals on the day. If you choose to help them a little bit more then you can make a donation or fundraise for the event here

Other ways to help :)


You can donate items, volunteer or pop along to the centre and find that new member of the family. 

The Curly's team have adopted our very own office Guinea pigs (Jeff & Alan) and they're the most productive team members we've ever had!
