About the event

Join us for a scenic summer's evening trot, through Batch Valley and then up onto The Long Mynd!  This run is planned as 1 chatty loop of around 6 miles/10km, starting and finishing in Batch Valley in All Stretton with the option of refreshments over a catch up in the pub afterwards.  There is 1 fairly steep climb towards the start to get up onto the top, but we'll be taking walking breaks as and when needed to enjoy the stunning views (and a homemade snack) at the top.  A relaxed run will follow, with some undulating ups and downs and spectacular scenery before a steady, runnable, descent back down.  This is a great way to explore the area and enjoy the views in a friendly, supportive environment! 

Batch Valley in All Stretton is the start/finish point, and we'll be heading to the local pub for our post-run refreshments.  We will also be enjoying a homemade treat on the top, and so please make sure to let me know any allergies or dietary requirements.

The route will be shared beforehand, and the group will be given clear directions/meeting points so anyone wanting to go a little further or faster is welcome to do so. The run leader ALWAYS stays at the rear to keep everyone together.  Our loop will include stony sections, paths alongside streams, wooden walkways and skinny sheep tracks.. and quite possibly a fair bit of mud!  We'll be going at a chatty, considered pace though to make sure everyone stays on their feet.

When purchasing your ticket, you can opt to include an exclusive Romy Design wooden pin as a memento of your run.

Please wear appropriate layers, bearing in mind it's often cooler (and windier!) on the top of a hill! Trail running shoes/trainers with good grip are essential and waterproofs dependent on the weather. Please bring water and any snacks you may need for the trail run - a running pack is highly recommended to ensure you have everything you may need. 

*In the event of bad weather this run will be rearranged and transfer or refunds offered depending on your preference.*
