We’d like to thank you for your interest in the seventh 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.
At the start and finish area at Lilleshall Cricket Club, there is a wonderful village green atmosphere and we hope you will partake of the refreshment and other stalls throughout the morning.
Prizes are awarded for the first three men and women and category prizes in the 10k race. There is also a commemorative momento 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.
