Tim Sherlock from Wenlock Spring Water said, “Hydration is clearly important for the participants in this event and Wenlock Spring Water are very happy to provide our crisp and refreshing water to help the ultimate goal of raising money for a great cause.”

Kate Pearce from Hobsons Brewery said “Our beers are brewed in the heart of the Shropshire countryside and as a company we are passionate supporters of events that showcase what the Shropshire landscape has to offer. We are pleased to be sponsoring, for the first time the Severn Valley Trail Race. We are looking forward to coming along to the event set in the stunning country park. Some of our staff may even dust off their running shoes and take part!”

Parks and Countryside Sites Officer, Edward Andrews said, ‘This will be a fantastic race and the whole route will be off road. I would encourage people to bring all the family down to the park. People who are not running can enjoy a coffee and a slice of cake in the tearoom or take the children on our natural play area.’
