Stanton Stile Hop – 5k Multi Terrain Fun Run
21 Apr 18
The STANTON STILE HOP is a 5km multi terrain fun run located in Stanton upon Hine Heath, Nr. Shawbury. This event is being run to help raise funds for our local junior football teams.
This stunning course will take runners on a 5km loop from the centre of Stanton village on a mixture of terrain from quiet lanes and across fields. As the event name implies, there are number of stiles on the course which all runners will need to climb over as part of the event. There is also a risk of some puddles and/or lying water in places but this will be dependent on the amount of rain on the lead up to the event. The course itself is fairly flat with the exception of a half way ‘feature’ hill of approximately 80 meters in length, to test your fitness. Approximately 80% of the course is off road.
Runners of all abilities are very welcome including children of 9 and above however please ensure that all children under 12 years old are within arm’s reach of an accompanying adult throughout the race. Adult entry fees start at 16 years old (where the child is 16 by or on the 21st April 2018).
The event will be well marshalled with one of our helpers in high visibility vests at every crossing, stile and turn on the route.

The course will also be marked with highly visible arrow boards.
A full and detailed risk assessment is in place and can be viewed on race day on the main information board.
