Shropshire Way 80K Festival 2023
Why not make memories to last a lifetime by taking part in one of our amazing challenges? The first weekend of April sees hundreds of runners and walkers coming to the Shropshire Hills to take part in our event which showcases the wonderful food, history and landscape of this fascinating area.
The festival is a fundraiser for Grow Cook Learn, the charity which operates the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, and all money raised will be used to support the charity’s goals. This year, the money will be used to support the delivery of our education programme, teaching children from inner-city areas about how their food is grown.
For 2023, there is a choice of five events; the SW80K– 50 miles in 24 hours; the Mammothon– a full-distance trail marathon with a generous 12-hour time limit; the Half-Mammothon, 13 miles with a 6-hour limit, Tusker’s 10K, 6.5 miles in 4 hours and the brand-new “How Welsh Dare You Go?”, chose your own distance on the Heart of Wales Line Trail.
Checkpoint opening times are set to accommodate hardcore trail runners right through to steady walkers and the event will support everyone to be their best on the day.
All the routes are hilly so don’t expect to smash your PB, but they will take you over some of the iconic Shropshire Hills summits and Iron-Age hillforts, along ancient drovers’ routes and through magnificent ancient woodland and delightful market towns. If you haven’t discovered this beautiful landscape yet, you’re in for a treat!
