Shropshire Eastridge Trail Races

Shropshire Eastridge Trail Races 

Saturday 7th July 2018

Choose from a 13.1 mile race or a 5.3 mile race. Both races under UKA rules. Full Licence - 2018-31760


Set in the stunning Shropshire countryside these two races 'The Trail Half' (approx. 13.1 miles) and 'The Trail 5' (approx. 5.3 miles) use the trails and tracks in Eastridge woods and paths on the Stiperstones ridge.

Both races start 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 short distance from the Event Centre.

The Trail Half has been running since 2014, and with2,324 feet of ascent your legs will know you've had a challenging run.

The Trail 5 is being run for the first time in 2018. It follows the Trail Half route for approximately 5.3 miles (1,073 ft of ascent) to the finish line near a feed station. From there it's approx. 1km downhill back to the event centre.

UKA rules do not allow dogs to accompany runners on the course and runners are not permitted to wear headphones.

Back at the Event Centre 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 for the Trail Half. If you haven't reached that point in the time allowed you will be withdrawn from the race.

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

The Participant Disclaimer should also be read before entering.

Congratulations to David Webb (Telford AC), 2017 Trail Half winner 

and Amy Partridge (Mercia Fell Runners) 1st lady 2017 Trail Half
