– Doors open at 8:30am
The Sun Inn
Set under the back drop of the Clee Hills, the route will leave the Sun Brewery in the sleepy village of Corfton, and climb upwards via grassy tracks and open farmland to Pinstones before dropping down through ancient woodland towards Westhope.
Competitors will then pick up a single track lane and and old bridle way that crosses a ford before climbing up onto Wenlock Edge. Wenlock Edge is an 18 mile stretch of ancient woodland that was once a coral reef and will be carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic in parts. The course takes in a section of the Edge before dropping up and down to Flounder’s Folly and joining more bridle ways and farmland to bring competitors to the final descent of the brewery. Full Marathon runners will get to enjoy the scenery once again on their second lap as they push for the final hurdle.
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.
