About the event

Join us for a morning of chatty trail running up and over the Long Mynd!  This run is planned as 2 (different) loops, allowing you to take on a longer distance and do both if you wanted or choose a shorter option.  Both will include a mix of lanes, footpaths and trails and stunning views!

The Bridges pub at Ratlinghope is the start/finish for both loops, and will be our meeting point and venue for any post-run refreshments.

Both routes 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.

Loop 1 is 7.5 miles (approx), heading up to Shooting Box before a long descent taking in the Golden Valley and Darnford Brook. Meeting at 9am.

Loop 2 is 5.5 miles (approx), heading up to Pole Bank and taking in sections of the Cross Britain Way. Meeting at 11am.

Both loops will be an easy, chatty pace, with a short break between to refuel and meet up with any additional runners joining! A great opportunity to tackle a trail half marathon distance in friendly company.

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*
