A BROMSGROVE charity run has sold out in record time but organisers are promising to release 20 more tickets before the event takes place.

This year’s ‘Bumble Bimble Winter Edition’ starts and finishes at the Park Gate Inn on Kidderminster Road, with runners choosing between a five or ten mile option.

Despite the a popular trail-run being set for later this year it has already managed to raise £2,000 for the Dodford Holiday Farm through tickets and fundraising.

Organiser Alex Dentith said: “It’s great to see such a huge interest in this year’s event.

“It sold out within five days but we are looking to release more tickets.”

The run is not-for-profit and is financially supported by two local companies, Bumble Hole Foods and Champion CCTV.

New to this year’s event will be ‘The Santa Dash’ – organised by year 11 pupils from North Bromsgrove High School.

It will see locals dressed as santa as they make a mad dash for the finish line.

All proceeds from the event, which will take place on the same day, will help fund the children’s trip to Peru next year where they will be volunteering in poverty stricken rural villages and helping rebuild schools.

Tickets for ‘The Santa Dash’ are still available and more tickets for the Bumble Bimble run are expected to appear on the website this week.
