The Snodsbury Scoot and Scramble races were set up in 2022 by a group of friends aiming to raise money for some swings in Upton Snodsbury park. As a not for profit set of events, any money raised goes towards USPRA  in maintaining the park facilities and to local charities.


This year we are proud to be supporting the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust, USPRA, alongside Friends of Upton Snodsbury School (FUSS).

I am delighted to announce the confirmed date for 2024 Snodsbury Scoot and scramble is Sunday 23rd June 2024. Put this date in your diaries. Entries will be opening on Sunday 25th February 2024. Look forward to seeing you at the 2024 event.
