Gold Hill 10k Run


You’re under starter’s orders! The much-anticipated annual Gold Hill 10k, promoted by Dorset Doddlers, is on the 8th October, with an 11am start.
Starting from Shaftesbury School, the race is a single loop 10k on scenic country lanes. The course is hilly and soon after the start runners get to ‘enjoy’ the run up the picturesque Gold Hill, made famous by the Hovis advert.
The race is limited to 250 competitors, and runners, Nordic walkers and fast walkers are all welcomed.
For more information regarding the race and booking online visit
All proceeds will be going to North Dorset District Explorer Scouts – those aged 14 to 18. North Dorset Explorers have two groups across the District, one in Gillingham/Milton on Stour and the other is based in Winterborne Stickland.
The organisers are always looking for volunteers to assist with marshalling the course – if you feel like helping out please email district commissioner Lionel on, it would be great to hear from you.
