Shropshire Way 80K Festival 2022
A Mammoth Experience in the Shropshire Hills
Saturday 2nd April 2022

Why not make memories to last a lifetime by taking part in one of our three amazing challenges?

For 2022, we will be hosting the flagship SW80K- 50 miles in 24 hours; the Mammothon- a full-distance trail marathon with a generous 12-hour time limit; and the Half-Mammothon, 13 miles with a 6-hour limit.

Entry fees include great local food & drink, first-aid services, a rescue vehicle, trackers for the two longer events, a certificate of achievement and an SW80K Festival memento. All the events have a fun and friendly atmosphere and are enjoyed by everyone from the hardcore ultra-runners gunning for a course record to walkers just trying to complete within the time.

The festival is a fundraiser for Grow Cook Learn, the charity which operates the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, and all money raised will be used to support the charity’s goals. This year, we hope to develop a wetland area in our meadows, with an accessible bird hide so that people of all abilities can learn about their local wildlife.

All the routes are hilly so don’t expect to smash your PB, but they will take you over some of the iconic Shropshire Hills summits and iron-age hillforts, along ancient drovers’ routes and through magnificent woodland and delightful market towns. If you haven’t discovered this fascinating and beautiful landscape yet, you’re in for a treat!

Our charity’s mission is to connect people to the food, history and landscape of the Shropshire Hills and so we provide a quality choice of local food at our checkpoints. You can sample Shropshire Fidget Pies, a beef stew served in a barn high in the hills, local cheeses and sausages as well as our famous Bara Brith.

For SW80K’ers, there’s a breakfast at the end too! If you’re veggie or vegan, you needn’t worry- you will be served equally well whatever your dietary needs.
What better way could there be to explore what the area has to offer than to walk or run through its enchanting landscape whilst tasting its wonderful food heritage?
