This race is a joint venture between Shrewsbury AC and the National Trust. Now in its tenth 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).
