Welcome to the “Shropshire Way 80K” (SW80K)
Well done to all of the competitors that took part over the weekend of 28th and 29th April and huge thanks must go to all of our volunteers who kindly donated their time to enable the event to take place. Details will be released for the 2019 event in due course.
What is it?
Run as a fundraiser, by local charity, Grow Cook Learn, this is a mass participation challenge walk taking in some of the finest parts of the Shropshire hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The route is 80km (50 miles) in length and the aim is to complete the circuit in less than 24 hours. The route follows almost exclusively the Shropshire way on either the Main Route or its subsidiary paths.
Starting and finishing at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, the home of Grow Cook Learn, this walk will take you through the very best of Shropshire’s amazing, undiscovered landscape and some of its hidden market towns. Along the way, as you pass through our check points, you will be able to sample some of the wonderful local produce that this area has to offer as you quite literally “eat the view”. The charity is committed to connecting people to the food, history and landscape of the Shropshire Hills so this event is the perfect way of achieving this whilst raising much needed funds for the charity to continue to it's mission.
