– Doors open at 8:15am
After yet another successful day in 2018, entries are now open for 2019’s race. Entries are limited to 200 for the main race, so reserve your spot soon. The virtual race will also take place during the week of May 4th.
This race will take place in the beautiful Shropshire Hills. Each of the laps are 13.1 miles and takes in the views from the top of Pole Bank, the famous mountain bike descent of Minton Batch, and the most beautiful valley on the Mynd Ashes Hollow.
The race will start at 10am, and there will be a cut off of 7 hours for the full marathon.
If you cant make it to Shropshire to join us on race day, we will also be holding a virtual race during the week (2nd – 6th May). Enter the virtual race, and post us your Garmin / Strava link and we will complile the results from across the globe and then send your bling out to you.
*** Please note unlike in 2018 - no runners are allowed to park in the valley ( even if they are NT members) so we have hired the school car park which is a 6 - 7 minute walk away which will hold approx 100 cars, so please consider car sharing where possible.***
We have been involved in event management for over 13 years working on all race distances from 5K’s right up to Ultra Marathons. We are actively involved in the course build of numerous OCR’s that take place in the UK. When we launched How Hard Can it be Events, we wanted to make running events fun and put on events that we would want to take part in ourselves. That is why we have worked hard to host smaller, friendlier events, where people can relax and get to know people and enjoy the whole running experience. We think this philosophy is what makes us stand out from the crowd.
