A Race under UKA rules. Licence to be applied for
This race is a joint venture between Shrewsbury AC and the National Trust. Now in its thirteenth year this race is set in the extensive grounds of the National Trust’s Attingham Park The multi-terrain course is approximately 5 miles.
The majority of the course is off road and includes a mixture of pasture land where cattle, sheep and deer can be seen. The course also passes through wooded areas with obstacles such as fallen trees. Also included are several wet / marsh areas (dependent upon weather conditions leading up to the race and on the day).
Mad Jack's pond Just before the finish the course takes in the “pond” where competitors run or wade through still water that is approximately 0.5 metres deep. This can be very muddy and obviously cold, be prepared for this popular feature at the end of the race.
