The weekend of the 10th and 11th September  will see the return of one of the most epic half and full trail marathon’s to hit Shropshire, with runners tackling 13.1 or 26.2 miles of the beautiful Shropshire Hills and The Long Mynd. This is a single lap marathon so no loops or out and backs.

The route covers a National Trust haven and the start will be in Carding Mill Valley. The finish is also in the valley nearly opposite the National Trust tea rooms. The course will be fully marked but runners should carry a map of the area. Runners will also be expected to carry a rucksac and a minimum of 500ml of water and a basic 1st aid kit. 

Carding Mill Valley is just a stone thrown from the beautiful town of Church Stretton which has a train station within a mile of the start.

Prices  includes a blingtastic medal and well stocked drinks tables out on the course. Friendly marshal included.

Race Permit applied for.
