Race Date: Sunday 15 March 2015 – 10.45am Fun Run 11.30am 10K
PLEASE NOTE: Some of the route goes over private land and is not available to run before the day of the race. Please respect the wishes of the local farmers who kindly make available their fields each year.
We are delighted to invite you to support the sixth running of this fabulous village event with its breathtaking scenery. The race is mainly off road and uses tracks and paths not normally open to the public. There are delightful woodland paths to be enjoyed and the later stages of the run meanders through the village and goes through the beautiful 11th century village churchyard. There are several playful hills en route including Lilleshall Hill itself which affords fabulous views to the nearby Abbey ruins and across to the Welsh mountains.
The day promises to be one for all the family to enjoy, with a fun run starting at 10.45 am, followed by the 10k at 11.30am. A lively warm up will take place prior to the fun run and food and drinks will be available throughout the morning. The cricket club bar will be open for those who develop a serious thirst! The course is well marshalled and sells itself as extremely friendly – check out reports on Runners’ World!
Prizes are awarded for the first three men and women and category prizes in the 10k race. There is also a commemorative hand-towel for all 10K entrants. Goody bags will be available to everyone who takes part in the fun run and shields are awarded to the first girl and boy from each school year group.
With your help in attending this race, we are delighted to report that over £6000 has been raised in the last 4 years to support sporting activities within the local community for young people. This year we are raising money to help provide an outdoor climbing wall for the village school and community to enjoy.
There’s never been a better reason to take part in the Lilleshall Monumental race!
