Lions’ marathon challenge

Bridgnorth Lions’ major expansion to the 2019 Bridgnorth Walk has created a flurry of interest, with enthusiastic runners signing up for the new Marathon event. One of those who has signed up is Susannah Gill, who recently ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents, setting a new record. The combined event will be known as the Bridgnorth Lions Walk and Marathon and takes place on Monday 27 May, with runners starting at 9am and walkers an hour later.
Bridgnorth Lions President Richard Stilwell says, “We’ve taken advice from Bridgnorth Running Club and they’ve indicated that it will be an exciting event for their members and for runners from other clubs throughout the West Midlands and even further afield. Currently, there are only a few marathons within a 50-mile radius so we expect interest from both competitive and club level athletes. This will be a very challenging event, running up and down hills, including a climb to the top of the Brown Clee.”
Walkers and runners can register at bridgnorthwalk.org, with entry fees for walkers capped at £15 (£5 for the junior walk) while runners pay £25.
