The Summer Bimble is back!
COVID 19 UPDATE 20th June 2021
So that we are still able to go ahead with the delayed easing of Lockdown, we have made some changes to the way the Bumble Bimble is taking place. As an organised sporting event we can continue the run, but changes to the start and finish have been made.
- To avoid large gatherings there will be no run briefing on the morning of the event. This will be done via email the day before. Marshal briefings will also be carried out virtually.
- Due to the event having chip timing (sent in the post) we will be stretching out the start. This should minimise groups of people, but please still observe social distancing guidelines whist you’re waiting to set off. Please do not bring spectators to the event.
- Please arrive within the block you have been given, go to the start line and run. Please don’t congregate in large groups. When you have finished your run, collect your medal and leave.
- The pub are still allowing us to use their facilities, however their COVID safety rules MUST be adhered to. If you choose to enter the pub as a customer before or after your run, you must scan in using the Track and Trace app. Face coverings must be worn if you need to go inside to use the facilities. Drinks can be purchased using table service only and from tables of a group of a maximum of 6. There is plenty of seating outside the pub, socialising after this run is a big part of what makes the Bimble special, but keep to the latest rules, keep everyone safe and support The Park Gate.
- Anyone who has ordered tees or vests will be able to collect from the front bar of the Park Gate from midday on Saturday 26th June. You can also collect on the morning of the event, from the event tent in the field near the finish of the route, off the car park.
We’re back on Sunday 27th June 2021. Entries are now closed and numbers and chips will be sent out in the post before race day.
All entries to the postponed summer and winter bimbles 2020 which were not taken as virtual runs will be carried forward to the summer bimble 2021. Please check your emails for confirmations from when you originally signed up. We’ll get email reminders out too.
The Bimble is a supported social run, starting and ending at the Park Gate Inn, 178 Kidderminster Road, Bromsgrove, B61 9AJ. Families very welcome!
