Clun Valley Half Marathon

Hills, Stiles & Streams

This pretty Shropshire trail race returns in April after a successful launch in 2023...

After the success of the inaugural Clun Valley Half Marathon in 2023, the race will return this year with participants being treated to the same stunning course on 28 April that was loved by all first time round. You are guaranteed a beautiful trail run that weaves through the stunning Shropshire countryside and along some of Clun’s loveliest trails.

Organisers, Running Monk Trail Events say: "We can promise the exact same hills, stiles and stream crossings all of which weave around the beautiful Clun Valley and provide you with some of the best views in the area."

Running Monk were already organising races of shorter distances but wanted to include a half marathon in their portfolio hence last year's trial event, they say: "We love the idea of our events helping runners progress from 5K to 10K, and beyond, which is why we have created this half marathon.

"None of our events have a cut off time and are fully marked and marshalled, making them perfect for those looking to take on their first challenge, in any distance!"

There will be chip timing, finisher's medal, Runningmonk travel mug filled with tea/coffee or soft drink, random spot prizes, and lots of encouragement and friendly faces.
