Interested in sponsoring HU5k?

We are grateful for the support from previous sponsors over the last decade which has allowed us to build this into such a popular event.

Hawkesbury Upton is a busy village community and a cotswold gateway location, so is popular with visitors from a wide area, giving HU5k a wide audience.

If you are interested in being part of HU5k and would like to talk about our range of sponsorship options, please contact

2023 sponsors – thank you!

HU5k 2023 kilometre sponsors

Our kilometre sponsors have been generous in their support of this community event, and we can’t thank them enough for enabling this race to go ahead. (For more details on the kilometres on the HU5K run route, see our Course info page!)

Sodbury Fuels (

A big thanks goes to long term friend of the HU5k, Sodbury Fuels, who are back on board for 2023 as sponsor of our first course kilometre. Andy, Lisa and the crew at SF have been so supportive over the years and we’re delighted that they are part of the team again. HU5ky Bear loves to visit any chance he gets, folks, that bear loves your Blue family of tankers! 😜

Sodbury Fuels are a lovely, local, independent, family run business and the Number One heating fuel suppliers around – chase them down for top service on all your domestic, commercial or agricultural fuel needs!

The Parlour Pool (

HU5k are proud to claim the amazing folk from The Parlour Pool in Old Sodbury amongst our kilometre sponsors. Providing an exclusive indoor pool facility for the local community to hire so everyone can have the benefit of a private pool without the burden of having to build and maintain one, The Parlour Pool also hosts a mind-bogglingly popular Super Swim School for children, specialising in a relaxed and calm environment and small class sizes. We’re BIG fans.

HU5ky popped over last summer to say welcome to the HU5k Family and offer his assistance getting everything ready for the next swim class. Of course, he got a bit distracted by all the FUN stuff and looked like he might be about to contaminate the beautiful water so we retrieved him! Massive thanks for your support again this year, Sarah & Chris & Team PP.

Landcare tree and Plant nursery (

Located in Old Sodbury, Landcare Tree & Plant Nursery is open to both public and trade customers and boasts an excellent quality range of trees, plants, compost and planting supplies. They really know their stuff and can offer top notch advice on your planting if you need it. Take a look at their Facebook page or for an inspirational example of their offerings or give them a call on 01454 310664.

HU5ky had an awesome time ‘helping out’ at Landcare’s sister company, Simply Gardens Tree Surgery & Landscape Maintenance over the last couple of years and had just as much fun visiting the Nursery this year to see if the rumours about bear cousins of eastern origin living in the bamboo section were true… Thanks so much for your support and welcome, LC!

Holford Arms (

We said this before and we still stand by it – we think The Holford really needs a visit to be properly appreciated but in lieu of that, here’s their own intro for you: “The Holford Arms is a multi award winning traditional country pub. Situated within eight green acres between the picturesque counties of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire (ed. they’re just over in Knockdown) with six lovely en-suite rooms, five luxury Chalets, four permanent luxury bell tents, camping and campervan facilities. Come and join us for a refreshing pint of local ale or dine from our seasonal and varied menu. We try to use local and own-grown produce as much as we possibly can making use of our beautiful vegetable gardens, cider orchards and vineyard.” Trust us, they’re lovely and we are so grateful for their renewed support for HU5k 2023, it’s great to have you on board again.

HU5ky Bear had a marvellous time when he went to visit last summer. He was keen to show off his pint pulling skills but got swiftly relegated back to customer status so he took himself off around the beautiful grounds on a tour of the summer-perfect outdoor bar & firepit and the Bell tent glamping facilities.

Brinkworth Golf Club (

Joining the HU5k sponsor ranks this year are Brinkworth Golf Club , supporting the final kilometre of our course. This friendly, well established 18-hole traditional golf course & club welcomes both new members of all levels as well as pay & play visitors. They also offer practice facilities and professional coaching.

HU5ky Bear is particularly excited and had a wonderful time playing with putters and inspecting the beautiful putting greens…

Thank you so much, Brinkworth! Welcome aboard
