Enviromental Policy Update:
Please note that ALL our races are now cup-free which means we will not be supplying cups and you will need to bring your own. We will provide water and squash dispensers and cola bottles for you to pour into your own cup.
Very soon we will have our own branded foldable and reusable cups for sale in our web-shop. You can either get these posted out to you in advance or collect them at registration on race day.

Meandering through Shrewsbury the course is flat and hugs the river until you cross a bridge at Atcham where the path remains away from the Severn until briefly touching at Cressage and then again at Buildwas. Ironbridge, Jackfield and Coalport, all producing stunning scenery and landmarks. The route continues to hug the Severn through Apley Forge, Bridgnorth, Hampton, Upper Arley, Bewdley, Stourport, finally reaching Top Barn Activity Centre, Holt Heath, the conclusion of The Severn Path Ultra
