Shropshire Way 80k ultra run 2nd April 2022

This event was again organised by Grow, Cook, Learn at the Discovery Centre Craven Arms. It was a huge success with 220 runners and walkers competing. The SWA Trustees manned the checkpoint at The Bog with cold drinks, fidget pies and quiches. A great experience to see the runners approaching and cheering them on. The winner was Ollie Perratt with an incredible time of 7.55 hrs. The fasted woman runner was Amy Fulford completing in 10.06 hrs. Well done all of you!

Carols at the Buzzard December 2021

About 60 people came along and sang carols accompanied by Mike Penny and Ron and assisted by Paul and Rebecca Barker. A fun evening with mulled wine and festive food which we hope to repeat in 2022.


Three youngsters completed the Shropshire Way Southern loop finishing at The Buzzard on 24th December. Reggie Bell, Edie Bell and Isla Macmillan walked the 120 miles joined along the way by their Mum or Dad. They raised money for Restart Africa and Shrewsbury Ark and hope to walk the Northern Loop in 2022.

Iain Prentice completed North and South loops of the SWMR from 26th to 30th April 2021. In all he did 193.5 miles in 52 hours of walking / running. He camped on the way and so had a heavy pack too!

Kerry Allison walked all the southern loop in four days.

Elaine Barnett and Sarah Williams completed 180 miles of the Shropshire Way in 7 days.

Grant Wilson, Centre Manager at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre completed all 120 miles of the Shropshire Way Southern Loop last weekend 5th to 7th June 2020. There is a link to his blog opposite, describing how he faced up to the challenge and achieved his goal.
