Getting back on top at the Brown Clee Burn
Sign up for this steep and scenic Shropshire run.
Bookings have opened for the Brown Clee Burn on Sunday 5 September, a tough 11K(ish) multi-terrain race in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Have a blast up the climbs and blow away the Covid-19 cobwebs then recover afterwards with a well-earned breakfast bap.
Swap the ups and downs of the past year for the ups and downs of the South Shropshire countryside with its beautiful scenery and highest hill in the county – Brown Clee which stands at 540 metres (1,770ft). Part of the Clee Hills range which includes Titterstone Clee at 533 metres (1,749ft). This is where ‘go for the burn’ takes on a whole new meaning as legs and lungs are given a good workout on these technical ascents.
There are stunning views across 5 counties from the top of the hill. However, what goes up must come down as runners get the chance to catch their breath on the long descents, helped on their way by friendly, supportive marshals. Two water stations on the course keep hydration levels topped up plus more water along with tea and coffee at the finish. Not forgetting the locally famous sausage or bacon bap to replace the lost calories.
The Brown Clee Burn starts and finishes at Stoke St Milborough village hall near Ludlow, Shropshire. Registration is from 9am to 10.30am followed by the race at 11am.
Monies raised from the event will be split between local charities and the Midlands Air Ambulance.
