For the 41st edition of the South Shropshire Circular we are going on tour and popping just over the border into Wales. The event will start and finish at the CowShacc Scout Hut in Welshpool (Berriew Street, SY21 7TE, GR SJ223072) with parking in the adjacent Berriew St car park (extra parking charge payable).

A challenging 27 mile route with 5000ft of ascent over scenic and testing countryside. As is traditional the route will be undisclosed until the day of the event when you will be given a clear and accurate route description. There is a 10 hour time limit.  A short route may be applied if necessary.

We will welcome you in the hall from 06:45 for registration, a simple breakfast and issue of the Route Description. The route will be divided into 4 legs with 3 serviced check points providing refreshments. The route description will provide the grid references of each checkpoint and a reliable indication of the best line between these. Please be aware the route description is written to be used in conjunction with OS Explorer Sheet 239 (Lake Vyrnwy and Llanfyllin) at 1:25 000. There will be a map inset on the route description to get you onto the main OS map.

There will be a briefing at 07:55 and a mass start at 08:00. A hot meal, endless tea and a fine certificate will greet your return to Welshpool.

This is sheep country and we're sorry but dogs cannot be brought on this event.

We are also not able to accept entries from anyone under 18.
