The Shin Dig In The Shire

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 an 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 down under Flounder’s Folly and joining more bridle ways and farmland to bring competitors to their final descent of the brewery. Full Marathon runners will get to enjoy the scenery once again as they push for the final hurdle. The Sunn Inn will be open for registration and for tea and coffee and bacon butties before the race and will be serving meals and drinks after the race.
