Overview

Welcome to TP: Run Club Shropshire, a community of trail runners & adventurers who share a passion for the outdoors. Join us as we inspire each other to push further & explore the wonders of nature together! JOIN THE COMMUNITY. EXPLORE. Join us for a 10K run meet at the Long Mynd - one of the most beautiful spots in Shropshire! We will meet in the car park just outside the cafe before heading out on our first climb - a gradual descent to the top of the Mynd which will be rewarded with breathtaking views! After a break at the top to catch our breath and take a photo, we will continue on our way along the top, with many views of Shropshire and the chance to spot some sheep and wild ponies! We’ll keep going along some gorgeous trails until we bag ourselves a trig at Pole Bank. Continuing the run, we’ll navigate some more trails before hitting the concrete for our final descent back down the Burway into the carpark. If you’re into wild swimming there’s a great reservoir so consider packing your kit for a post race dip!

Trail running for me means seeking beauty in nature, having freedom to explore new places & being resilient mentally & physically. What I find special about the Trail Pursuit community is that everyone is so unique, from different places & walks of life yet we share an obsession for the outdoors which breaks barriers for new friendships.

As someone who primarily road runs in the city, getting out on the trail is my escape. It's more than just fresh air, it takes me to a healthy mental place.

Trail running has always been a form of complete escapism for me; it's exhilarating and challenging in equal measure but leaves you feeling accomplished and like you can tackle anything life throws your way!

Running for me is a daily reprieve from the pressures of daily life. I moved from the road into trail running about two years ago. Hitting the trails gives me a chance to reset my mind and reconnect with body whilst surrounded in beauty and nature.

Losing myself amongst nature on the trails has proven to be a lifeline, by lifting my spirits and improving my mental health. This sense of purpose is so important for me since I've had to reclaim the routes for my own... on wheels.

Trail running makes me a happier person, connects me with a nature, which I really enjoy. I feel wild and free when I'm on my trails 🙃

To me, trail running removes the playing field all together, it removes the boundaries that come from road running and allow you to feel a full sense of adventure and intimacy with the natural world. Going off the beaten path is where I feel alive, free and at my most inspired.
