The Pattingham Bells Run is ending to due to uncertainty over the course availability.

However it is expected 900 runners will sign up for the final run on October 6.

The run allows participants to embark on either a 5km or 10km course around the picturesque surroundings of south-west Staffordshire.

And for the 30th event each runner will be given a specially-designed Bells Run Brass medal.

The first race was held in 1990 to raise money for a new wooden bell frame for the belfry in St Chad's Church, Pattingham.

This final race will be held in aid of Acorns Children's Hospice - which is urgently trying to raise £2million - and for St Chad's primary school.

The run will begin at 11am. To sign up, visit
