Pattingham Bells Run is an annual event which takes place each October.
The run starts and finishes in Pattingham in South Staffordshire over a 7 mile off-road, multi-terrain course, under UKA rules.
The first run, back in 1990, was organised to raise money to replace the old wooden bell frame in the belfry of St. Chad's church in Pattingham. Because of its popularity, the run has continued over the years and is now a respected event in the running world.
All proceeds from the race are now used for local charities, such as the West Midlands Air Ambulance, and also to help St. Chad's church funds. All runners finishing receive a 'Bells Run' brass.
Details of the races since 2012 are on the the Bells Run website together with details of the next run.
A commemmorative brass is produced each year with the design being changed each year. A brass is given to each successful runner and also to those who assist with the run. Pictures of the brasses are here.
