The "Great Sprout Scuttle" returns for year number 3 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, in 2019 it became a lake so we had to build a diversion! in 2020 ???)

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! 

We also have 50 spots in the Candy Cane Canter for the kids ... A fun filled 1k run out and back on the race course straight, perfect for the 4-11 year olds that are a bit too young for the 5k :) 

Christmas medal, sweets and a candy cane to grab from santa on the way around the course... just for fun :)
