Route description
Route description

The Severn Challenge is a 220 mile race along the longest riverside path in the UK. The whole event is split into 5 stages, over 5 days, making it a gruelling event for runners.

If you don't feel like tackling the whole route, you're welcome to take on just 1 stage of the race. Here at the The Severn Path Ultra, runners will take on the third stage of the event.

This brilliant 60 mile race takes you along parts of the beautiful River Severn Path. Runners will meander through Shrewsbury, where the flat course will hug the river until you cross a bridge at Atcham. From here you will stay away from the river until a brief section at Cressage and then at Buildway.

Iron-bridge, Jack-field and Coal-port will all provide stunning scenery and landmarks through the day. The route returns to the river, hugging it's banks through Apley Forge, Hampton, Upper Arley, Stourport before finally reaching the Top Barn Activity Centre in Holt Heath where the race will conclude.

Checkpoint Food

  • Malt loaf
  • Jam
  • Peanut Butter
  • Cheese and marmite sandwiches
  • Sweets
  • Squash and Coca Cola
