Bridgnorth Lions Marathon
A Major Challenge !
The Marathon will be a major challenge for both experienced runners and for those attempting this distance for the first time.
The event starts at 9am from Bridgnorth High St (one hour earlier than walkers)
The route experiences many elevation changes challenging the fittest runners. The nine mile run from Bridgnorth out to Ditton Priors is tough enough on its own as there are many hills and twisting roads along the way.
But once runners reach the base of the Brown Clee on the edge of Ditton Priors they will be faced with The Incline, a near one mile ascent to the top of the hill where the summit is at 1770 feet (540 metres)! Having reached the top, near the iconic radio masts, the route descends rapidly, across to Burf Bank, then round to Cockshutford. Runners then make their way back round to Bent Lane in Ditton Priors where they rejoin the walk route.
Runners should not underestimate the seriousness of the challenge.
The fee for runners is £25, which not only provides a contribution to the cost of staging the event but also towards Lions’ charity funds.
