Course Details

This race will take place in the beautiful Shropshire Hills.  Each of the laps are 13.1 miles and takes in the views from the top of Pole Bank, the famous mountain bike descent of Minton Batch, and the most beautiful valley on the Mynd Ashes Hollow.

You may run either a half or full marathon at this event. There will be a 7 hour cut off for this race.  Marathon runners must be back at race HQ within 3.5 hours to be allowed out on their 2nd lap.

Doors open: 8:15am at Shropshire Hills.


*** Please note unlike in 2018 – no runners are allowed to park in the valley ( even if they are NT members) so we have hired the school car park which is a 6 – 7 minute walk away which will hold approx 100 cars, so please consider car sharing where possible. ***
