Callow Fell Race is a classic summer race which for the first time ever has been brought for a winter edition. Although it is an AS race (8km/762m 5 Miles/2400ft), it has been described by runners as one of the toughest races in Shropshire. The route starts not far from Little Stretton and takes you up four steep valley climbs and finishes on a fast, exhilarating descent.

WFRA Registered Race. PM/NS/LK.

The race will start at 11am, number/dibber pickup open from 10am. Race HQ will be at Little Stretton Village Hall (SY6 6RE). Masks will be compulsory in the race HQ.

Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Men and Women.

Full WFRA kit will be mandatory for the event. Waterproof tops and legs with taped seams, hat (a buff is a hat), gloves, compass, whistle, food and drink as needed for the conditions, map (will be on sale for a donation to the WMSAR), something to carry the kit (bumbag/rucksack). No GPS for navigation.

It is recommended that runners have previous fellrunning experience/mountain skills as there will be limited marshals and signage.

No entries on the day.

Please only use designated car parks.
