Q. Will there be road closures?
A. We've worked extensively and closely with the Shropshire Highways and Transport team to design the route for least disruption and based on their advice we will need to close some roads around Cleobury Mortimer for the safety of the runners. A lot of effort has been put into making sure the impact is kept to a minimum - for example a small section of the A4117 will be closed at the start of the race when all runners are still close together and therefore the road will only be closed for the minimum time needed for all runner to pass.
For all road closures we will use a rolling road closure - only closing whilst runners are passing and opening as soon as the last has passed.
Q. Will there be parking?
A. Cleobury Mortimer has several public car parks near to the venue.
Q. What about medals and goodies?!
A. All finishers will receive an exclusive Cleobury Mortimer 10KM medal and goody bag.
Q. Can I enter on the day?
A. We have a limit of 250 runners for the event - any remaining spaces will be available to enter on the day.
Q. Is there an age limit?
A. The race is limited to over 18 only (age taken on the day of the race)
Q. Is there an upper age limit?
A. No. All that we ask is that any participant unsure of their physical ability to take part should seek medical advice from a general practitioner prior to the event.
Q. I haven’t run in a proper race before? Can I still enter?
A. Absolutely! It may be advisable to try a few shorter runs before the event, it’s not a race against the clock but a fun and safe way for you to find out how enjoyable running is and to hopefully start you training regularly.
Q. Can my dog run alongside me?
A. For health and safety reasons we cannot allow any pets to participate in any of the events.
Q. Will you send me information in advance?
A. All information is available on either this website, the RaceNation website or the runbritain website. Race numbers and timing chips will not be posted out in advance and will be available to pickup on the day.
Q. Roughly how long will it take to complete the course?
A. We would expect the majority of runners to complete the course between 30 minutes and 1 hour 40 minutes.
Q. How will I know which way to go?
A. There will be course signage and marshals at all key junctions to ensure you don’t get lost.
