Trail Running

Don’t fancy Fell Running but want to try something off-road? As a member of Shrewsbury AC there are opportunities to compete in Trail races with Club members. If you are a member of another club it may be possible to compete for Shrewsbury AC. Use the Request Information form on the right of this page to get more information.

For information about Trail races have a look at the Trail running Association website http://www.tra-uk.org/ Shrewsbury AC athletes are competing in this type of event more frequently. A current favourite is the Trail Marathon Wales and Trail Half Marathon http://www.trailmarathonwales.com/ . If you fancy a visit to the Lake District it’s worth checking here  http://www.lakelandtrails.org/index.php – there are Trail Races from 10k to marathon distance.

Shrewsbury AC promote an off-road race:

Mad Jack’s 5 – a race (approximately 5 miles) in the grounds at Attingham Park, Atcham. For more information on the race go to the Our Races pages.

Want to compete?

While you don’t have to be a member of a club to compete in most Trail races being a member means you can share travel to races, share your race experience with other Club members – including gaining ‘bragging rights’ for good performances.
