The Railway Ultra Challenges
The Railway Ultra was such a success it will return in 2018 with The Winter Railway Ultra on the 17th February 2018 and the Summer event on the 4th August. The route takes runners along the banks of the River Severn between Ironbridge and Bridgnorth along the disused railway line where the views of the river are outstanding.
You have the choice of running 9, 19, 28, or 38 miles. Each out and back lap is 9.4 miles and there will be water stations every 4.7 miles.
