Runners will start from the Linden Field in Much Wenlock where, back in the 1850s, the annual Wenlock Olympian Games were first held. Both races are challenging, multi-terrain courses taking in the footpaths, trails, bridle paths and lanes in and around the old borough town of Wenlock, travelling down to the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge and ending back at William Brookes School in Much Wenlock.

Entries are warmly welcomed from runners aged 18 years and over and all finishers will receive a participation medal.

See wenlock-olympian-society.org.uk for entry forms.
