The Apley Estate Autumn Challenge Team

Jumping for joy to be back racing this September

Racing is back this September at the Apley Estate Autumn Challenge. After a long wait, 350 runners will descend on the stunning private Apley Estate for a series of 5, 10 and 21K multi-terrain running races. The event is managed by local club the Wrekin Road Runners on behalf of the Apley Estate.

Runners take on the scenic and undulating multi-terrain course through the parklands of the estate on Sunday 26 September. Not normally open to the public this is a unique opportunity for athletes of all abilities to take in this magnificent part of Shropshire.

The event raises funds fr the Church of St. Chad in Stockton. The church sits within the grounds of the Apley Estate and runners pass the building on one of the routes. Also this year the event will raise funds for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. For those curious about the work of the AIR Ambulance, they will be at the event with their Helipod.

Darren Poulton, Race Director, Wrekin Road Runners said, “The last 18 months have been hard for everyone and it’s great to see races happening again around the country. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Apley Estate for this safe and friendly outdoor event”.

Entries are still open though it’s expected to sell out before the cut off date of 19 September. All race info and entry is available below.
