Shepton Mallet 10k and 1k Fun Run

Shepton Mallet cancelled.jpg


Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and social distancing practice, and in the interest of everyone’s health and safety, it is with regret that we feel we have little option but to cancel the Shepton Mallet 10k and Junior 1k on 25 October 2020. Refunds will be offered and all runners will be contacted.

The race will start and finish at Collett Park in the centre of Shepton Mallet, leaving the park crossing Charlton Road down past the town’s famous prison and weaving through the streets before escaping onto scenic country lanes. A picturesque route - watch out for the two challenging hills along the way!

We expect spaces to sell out so advice early booking.

Junior 1k Fun Run

Our popular 1k fun run is for all ages and costs £2.50 which includes a medal. It will start at 10.15am at the main start line.
