Join us on Portland for either a 2 km walk/run for all the family from 0 to 100 years old – or a 5 mile run for those 15 or over. Whether you want to race or ‘bimble’ round the course this is a great charity event!


The annual Dumble Bimble  charity fun runs are named in memory of Club members Alan and Andrew Dumble, with all monies raised going to Weldmar Hospice in their memory. Alan was an original club member when the club was formed. Why the Name? Alan always use to say to his wife Jan when he was going for a run “I’m just going out for a bimble”. Invariably when you hear other runners chatting about the race it will be referred to as the-Dimble Bimble, Dimble Dumble or any other such combination, those who knew Alans sense of humour say he would have loved this!

The race takes place on a Tuesday night early in September and is always well supported by local runners and clubs, it is a great family event with kids and adults of all ages and abilities taking part. Entry is on the night and costs £4 for adults and £1 for children

If you would like to help raise money for a great cause sponsorship forms will be available from local businesses and online nearer the time.
