Held under UK Athletics Rules. UKA Licence applied for.
The annual Wenlock Olympian Games is organised by Wenlock Olympian Society Society (WOS). WOS aims to preserve the ideals of Dr William Penny Brookes - the inspiration for the modern Olympic Movement. The Games are held each year at venues across Shropshire centred on the little market town of Much Wenlock. The 2017 Half Marathon will once again start and finish in Much Wenlock and cover a scenic route taking in the footpaths, trails, bridlepaths and lanes in and around the town. The route will also take in Ironbridge – the birthplace of modern industry and a World Heritage Site.
*** Leading men and ladies, including those in all age categories will, in Olympian tradition, be awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. All finishers will receive a participation medal. ***
