Hawkstone Colour Run in partnership with Hope House

Get ready for the happiest 3K you'll ever walk, dance or run. The run is a colour race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community while experiencing the uniqueness of the Hawkstone Park Follies. The Colour Run is a three-kilometre, un-timed race in which participants are doused from head to toe in different colours at each kilometre. Chance to visit the Hawkstone Park Follies with all the family. Refreshments available on the day. No dogs are allowed to take part in the run but can come and spectate. Hope House are here for children who are affected by conditions so serious that they’re not expected to live longer than early adulthood. We’re here to help them enjoy the best possible quality of life both emotionally and practically. We’re here throughout the lifetime of their child - and often well beyond - with specialist nursing care, counselling support, empathy & understanding. Our dedicated teams work at Hope House & Tŷ Gobaith, in the family’s own home and within local communities. As a registered charity, we need to raise over £6 million this year. That’s well over £100,000 every week to make sure we can carry on being here for all the children and families who need us in Shropshire, Cheshire, Mid and North Wales. We will email you two weeks prior to the event to confirm all the details about the day. The T-Shirt and glasses will be available when you register and your medal & bottle of water will be given to you at the finish line. If you would like to raise money for Hope House then please set up a just giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/hhch or alternatively if you would like an official Hope House sponsor form for this event, please email fundraising@hopehouse.org.uk or phone 01691 671671.

Ludlow Cycling Festival – Apple Tree Ride

This is a leisurely 27km ride led by Maria Clayfield and her team and we aim to keep everyone together whatever your age and level of experience. Our route leaves Ludlow on Fishmore Road, heading in to the broad Corvedale valley and passing through the sleepy village of Stanton Lacey and Ludlow Race Course. Still heading north on quiet, gently rolling lanes we pick up Sustrans National Cycle Route 44 to enjoy the stunning views across Corvedale to Titterstone Clee Hill that dominates Ludlow’s landscape. The Apple Tree pub in Onibury is our designated stop and you can enjoy their food or perhaps eat your picnic in their garden. Heading for home we finally take the underpass to avoid the busy A49 at Ludlow Food Centre before cruising through the leafy Earl of Plymouth Estate back to the Rugby Club. Places are limited to 40 so please register early.

SJT Whitchurch (Shropshire) 10K

Welcome to the 3rd Sir John Talbot’s Whitchurch 10K Road Race...still can't believe we are on year 3 already! We are grateful for the ongoing generous support provided by Grocontinental, who are the headline race sponsors for this event which is celebrating its third year. The race has a full UKA licence. Starting and finishing at Sir John Talbot’s School, the course is mainly flat but we have incorporated some short hills just to keep you a little challenged! It is confined to roads within the boundaries of our historic Market Town. The Town centre, with its half-timbered buildings, bustling pubs and the imposing Georgian Grade 1 listed St Alkmund’s Church will form part of the course, where we hope the residents of the Town and visitors alike, will congregate to shout, cheer and encourage all runners.The course has been finalised and is available via http://www.sirjohntalbots.co.uk/sjt-10k/ and the Sir John Talbot's School Whitchurch 10K Facebook page. It will be included in the course programme, a copy of which will be given to all runners on race day together with their race number.

Lichfield Half Marathon

The Lichfield Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 12th May 2019 at 10:30am. This is the ninth year it has been staged and the event has quickly built up a reputation among runners that it now attracts in excess of 1500 competitors. It is located in the historic market city of Lichfield, famous for its three spired cathedral and Dr Johnson’s birthplace (author of the first English dictionary). It was also home to Erasmus Darwin, a physician, inventor and poet who postulated theories of evolution which were later taken on by his famous grandson, Charles Darwin. Lichfield retains an unspoilt quality with many listed buildings leaving a Georgian legacy. The city is located 16 miles north of Birmingham and easily accessible via the M6 Toll and A38. The Lichfield Half Marathon will start from playing fields in front of King Edward VI School, turn left on to the A51 and proceed along Tamworth Road. The route will take runners towards and through Whittington and then on through rural roads past the outskirts of Fradley, before heading back towards Lichfield via Netherstowe and finally ending at Stowe Fields which is situated between Stowe Pool and the Cathedral. The first part of the route (along A51 to Whittington Barracks) will be closed to traffic. The remainder of the route is along quiet country lanes but marshalls will patrol each stage of the route guiding competitors and ensuring traffic is controlled. The first three runners of the Ladies and Gents races will be presented with trophies. Every finisher will be presented with a medal showing their participation in the Lichfield Half Marathon along with a goody bag containing water, energy bar and a piece of fruit. Refreshment stations will situated at several places around the course. The race will use chip timings.
