Charles Bennett Memorial Green
Shapwick –┬áDorset

****The results for all eight races are now available via the Results page****

****Thanks to everyone who ran, cheered and supported at yesterday’s event. We had nearly 200 runners take part, with ages ranging from 2 to 80! The event photos taken by Bob Webb are available to view here. Results will be published very shortly.***


This summer Shapwick will once again be hosting the Charles Bennett Olympic Mile races to celebrate our local hero and to coincide with the Rio Olympic Games. There will be a series of races for all abilities, including an elite race with cash prizes.

One mile road races are actually very unusual these days, so please take up the challenge and enter to see how fast you can run one mile!

It promises to be fun afternoon for both runners and supporters, all set around the Charles Bennett Memorial Green in our scenic Dorset village.

The website contains details of the event, some history on Charles Bennett and entry information.

We look forward to welcoming you to Shapwick later in the summer!
