Gavin Tipper 5K

The Gavin Tipper 5k is back on for 2021 taking place on Friday 10th September at 7.15pm at Dudley Kingswinford Rugby Club.

The Gavin Tipper Race is held in memory of Gavin with proceeds from the race going to Action Heart. Gavin was  a member of DK Rugby Club playing for many years and is part of DK Rugby history by scoring DK’s only tri at Twickenham. After retiring from the game he gave something back to sport by coaching children at Black Country Triathletes, Tipton Harriers as well as Halesowen cycling. His encouragement of children in sport and passion for everybody taking part is one of the reason the Gavin Tipper 5K is so popular.

The race is for all abilities it is one of the few chances the children can go up against adults (and beat them). The race also coincides with the DK beginners runners course that culminates in the beginners taking part in the 5k race.
