Rocky Horror Picture Show Tribute Run

Running Through A Time Warp

How about running in stockings and suspenders for this fun, themed event?

There are plenty of races out there with a fancy dress theme, but none of them are quite as 'astounding' as the Rocky Horror Picture Show Tribute Run! This year, the musical-themed race will take place on 6 August at its usual venue - Shrewsbury Cycle Track.

This race is billed as one of the 'funniest days out in Shropshire and it's easy to see why with organisers promising eye-catching fancy dress, fast times, music and a lot of laughs. Held on a purpose-built cycle track, this event offers half or full marathon distances alongside 10 and 5K races.

Runners complete multiple laps around Shrewsbury’s cycle track and last year over 75% of the field achieved personal best times. A spokesperson from How Hard Can It Be Events, said: "The Rocky Horror Picture Show Tribute run is taking Shropshire by storm, come and join us on this fast PB course in the heart of Shropshire. You can not only 'do the time warp' but get a good time while you're at it!"

For those of you who can’t make it to Shropshire there is also a virtual option, where those signed up run the race distance at a location of their choice and then send organisers their Garmin / Strava tracks. Once it's all been confirmed, the bling will be in the post!

The bling is spectacular, the atmosphere amazing... if you're looking for a race to really put a smile on your face then this is the one. After taking part in the 2018 event, Claire Hancox commented on Facebook: "Loved it but don’t think I’ll make running in stockings and suspenders a regular thing!"
