About the event
Our Runningmonk Rollin' 100 will start and finish at The Fox Holes Castle Camping, Bishop's Castle, and will be one continous loop made up of trail, forestry, fields and some back roads. You will travel through three of the most beautiful counties, taking in sections of the Shropshire Way, Offa's Dyke Path and the historic Mortimer's Trail, clocking up around 14,000ft of Elevation. This is a course with no particularly brutal climbs, just the rolling hills that the three Counties have on offer...with the exception of a few tougher tests here and there!
All runners will receive a tracker, so that all your friends and family can keep an eye on your progress, a Medal, Travel Cup, T Shirt, Keyring, a Three Tuns beer or non alcoholic alternative and lots of support.
Foxholes Campsite has on site parking and toilet facilities, and for anyone looking to travel down the night before, camping is also available at £10 per person, per night; please contact the campsite directly to book.
CUT OFF & AID STATIONS
There is no cut off time to finish any of our events, but depending how long you are out on the course, it may be that some of the volunteers have left aid stations. However, we will endeavour to get food and drink out to you if possible. There will be 6 aid stations on the route in total, stocked with a variety of food and drink, some hot, some cold.
The course will be fully marked using our own signage and the permanant National trail markers. We will ensure that the route is as clear as possible; a GPX will also be available to download.
