The ChinnocksChase is a tough, multi terrain run through the stunning surroundings of the Chinnocks, encompassing tough climbs, steep descents, tracks, trail and holloways, through fields and over stiles, a tough trail run with beautiful scenery to boot.

The Chinnocks are made up of the three villages of West, East and Middle Chinnock and the race has been established by a small sub committee of the PFA for West Chinnock Primary School in order to raise funds towards a much needed library.

With a 5k route for those who want to get involved but don't fancy the more arduous 10k, the 5k is a flatter, predominantly off road route through the beautiful Chinnocks.  There is also a fun run of 2k for children and an accompanying adult.


West Chinock Primary School is a small village school with a lot going on for it's size!  Set in the rolling hills of South Somerset, West Chinnock is a happy, caring place where the staff and parents work together to give the children the best start in life.

The children benefit greatly from the schools' small size and mixed age classes and the warm, family atmosphere.


Our aim is to raise funds towards the building of the new school library. The plan is that it will be a separate building to the rest of the school, a dedicated library for reading and quiet time. The current library is a small, multi purpose area within the main building which means that the children are not always able to use it as freely as we would like them to.


There are many ways in which you can help us to make this a successful event. We will be asking for volunteers to help us on the day as we will need marshalls and support staff. Of course we will need as many runners as we can possibly drum up, so please spread the word to any fellow runners. If running isn't your thing but you would like to help with this project please contact us


If you are running we are hoping that you will help us raise sponsorship money (but its not essential).


If you are a local business  we would really appreciate your support and it is a great sponsorship opportunity for those who want to show their support for the local community.   We have number of sponsorship levels so please do get in touch for further details.
