Wednesday 12th June 2019
Wednesday 10th July 2019
Wednesday 7th August 2019 and
Wednesday 4th September 2019

The fast and slightly undulating course makes this event ideal for setting a new 5k PB – and it’s great too for beginners or those simply looking for a short evening run.

Every finisher will be awarded a medal.

Very Hungry Caterpillars

This week Butterfly Conservation celebrated the 50th Birthday of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Eric Carle’s classic has introduced millions of children to the amazing life cycle of a butterfly.

Anyone familiar with the tale will know that the leading larva hatches on a Sunday and spends Monday to Friday eating fruit. On Saturday the caterpillar’s diet takes an interesting turn as it binges on junk food including cakes, cheese and salami.

Although there is a fictional element to this otherwise educational story, the eating habits of a caterpillar are probably more varied than you might imagine.
