The Big Dipper

The Big Dipper is an annual running race around the village. Organised by Nigel Misselbrook, it's not called the Big Dipper for nothing. On the 10k run 90% is either running up or down hill. with the final steep hill at Probyn's Pitch set to test you right at the end. The race is open to keen runners and fun runners.

The race started in 2006 when nearly 60 individuals braved torrential rain, thunder and lightening to complete the circular course which followed country lanes from Upton Bishop to Kempley and back. They were rewarded with excellent marshalling, a unique T shirt and tea and cakes at the Millennium Hall.

Alongside the adult race there are fun races for children. The race starts and finishes at the Millennium Hall and is held in September/October every year.

This year's Big Dipper was on Sunday, September 28th. Details
