Why not make memories to last a lifetime by taking part in one of our amazing challenges? The first weekend of April sees hundreds of runners and walkers coming to the Shropshire Hills to take part in our event which showcases the wonderful food, history and landscape of this fascinating area.

For 2023, there is a choice of five events:

  • the SW80K- 50 miles in 24 hours
  • the Mammothon - a full-distance trail marathon with a generous 12-hour time limit
  • the Half-Mammothon, 13 miles with a 6-hour limit
  • Tusker’s 10K, 6.5 miles in 4 hours
  • and the brand-new “How Welsh Dare You Go?” (choose your own distance!)

Entry fees include free parking, great local food & drink, first-aid services, a rescue vehicle, trackers for the three longer events, a certificate of achievement and an SW80K Festival memento. All 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.

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 ancient woodland and delightful market towns. If you haven’t discovered this beautiful landscape yet, you’re in for a treat!

Our charity is all about local food, so we offer our runners Shropshire’s famous Fidget Pies, a beef stew served in a barn high in the hills, local cheeses and sausages as well as our delicious home-made 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.
