Shropshire Eastridge Trail Half Relay Challenge

Shropshire Eastridge Trail Half Relay Challenge

 2018 date coming soon

 A race under UK Athletics rules 

  

Set in the stunning Shropshire countryside this 3 leg Relay Trail Race uses the same route as it's companion race - the Eastridge Trail Half. We know that the Trail Race is a tough challenge so this relay race gives runners who don't fancy running 13.1 miles the chance to be part of what is proving to be a must-do event. UKA rules do not allow dogs to accompany runners on the course and runners are not permitted to wear headphones.

Leg 1 is 5.28 miles with 1,073 ft of ascent and 758 ft of descent, Leg 2, 4.69 miles with 1,148ft of ascent and descent, Leg 3 is 3 miles with 348ft ascent and 663ft of descent.

The race starts in the historically significant mining village of Snailbeach. There is plenty of free parking a short walk from Registration and the start and finish areas are only a few hundred metres from the Event Centre. The relay change over point is 1km (106m ascent) from the event centre. When you enter this race you can be assured of the same attention to detail as the Trail Half race.

After your run return to the Event Centre where you can enjoy food and drink and the presentation. As the weather in this country is unpredictable we don't want to leave marshals on the top of the Stiperstones for an extended period - so there is a cut-off point. If your team hasn't reached that point in the time allowed you will be withdrawn from the race. Please read the Information for Runners for more details before you enter.

 The Information for Runners provides all the information you need about the race including the Race Cancellation Policy. Please read this before entering.

Congratulations to Croft Ambrey Crew, winners of the Relay. Scott Hardie (no 258A) pictured on leg 1.
