Shobdon Wood Race 

11 a.m. Sunday 3 May 2020

UKA Race Licence 

Unfortunately, owing to the current situation with the coronavirus and following England Athletics guidance we are cancelling the Shobdon Wood Race at this current time.

We hope to be able to reschedule later in the year.

We will shortly be contacting everyone who has already entered with details of how to get a refund.

Everyone at Croft Ambrey Running Club hopes you and your family stay well and to see you all at Shobdon Wood at some point in 2020.


Shobdon Wood race is a popular and challenging off-road race along forest tracks and footpaths through Shobdon Wood, just one mile out of the village of Shobdon in North Herefordshire. It is approximately 9k with a few hills and stunning, far reaching views of Herefordshire, Shropshire and Mid Wales.

There is a free race memento and refreshments after the race including a well-deserved doughnut to all competitors.

Parking and registration takes place at the old Forestry Commission field centre HR6 9PB, where there are toilets but unfortunately no changing facilities. There will be signposts for the event from the B4362. Parking may be limited so please car share if possible.

Please allow for a ten minute walk from registration to the start of the race.

Prizes will be awarded for top 3 male and female finishers, for all veteran 5 year age categories and for male and female teams of 3 in a short presentation when all the runners have crossed the finish line. There will be one prize per runner.

Minimum age for entries is 15 years of age on race day. 

We regret that we are not able to offer refunds for this event, however pre-registered entries can be transferred to another runner.

Online entries are limited to 160 but there will be on the day registration for an extra £2.

If you have any questions about the race please contact us via the email address provided.
