About the event

Join us for a scenic Sunday trot around the area North of the Stiperstones Nature Reserve.  We will be starting at Snailbeach, before heading through Oakridge Wood and up towards the Stiperstones and Shepherd's Rock.  Fingers crossed for a clear morning to take in the stunning views over Mytton Dingle as we continue our route, but we'll be enjoying the landscape regardless with plenty of wildlife and pretty vegetation to look out for!

This run is planned as 1 chatty loop of around 6-7 miles / 10-12km, starting and finishing in Snailbeach - around 20 minutes drive from Shrewsbury.  There will be a mixture of woodland trails, muddy fields and some rocky terrain (although we be avoiding the rockiest of the Stiperstones footpaths!), and of course a few hills. As usual the pace will be chatty, with walking whenever needed to both catch a breath and take in our surroundings - as well as to enjoy a homemade snack around halfway!  This is a great way to explore the area and enjoy the views in a friendly, supportive environment.  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.

The Stiperstones Inn is a 5 minute drive away (opening at 12pm Sundays) if you wanted to join us for a post-run drink afterwards, pre-booking recommended if you fancy a Sunday roast!

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 extreme weather this run will be rearranged and transfer or refunds offered depending on your preference.*
