The Long Distance Walk event returns to the Wenlock Games programme after an absence of one year. The 2018 event consists of a 50 miles walk with the start and finish in Much Wenlock at Grid Reference SJ624000. The route follows the Shropshire Way to the Church at Holdgate where the ladies of the parish serve an array of amazing cakes. It then climbs Abdon Burf before heading to Craven Arms and tackling a few more Shropshire hills on the return route to Much Wenlock. This event is open to walkers and runners. It is a demanding event requiring navigation skills. Entrants should have completed at least 2 walks of 25ml or more in the previous 12 months. This is a Challenge Event organised by the Marches Group of the LDWA

Hartlepool based The Jar Family are five individual songwriters and musicians, who decided that, rather than strive for success in isolation, they would join forces to pool their talent and create their ‘industrial folk’ sound.
The Jar Family have mesmerised, entertained, thrilled and conscripted punters at more than 400 gigs including approximately 75 festival performances. This six piece are a superb option for festival crowds all over the UK and Europe as they have the knack of being able to win over a crowd quickly and they are extremely entertaining to watch. Imagine, if you can, Steam Punk infused Bob Dylan wrestling The Pogues Springsteen and The Beatles! They are a truly exceptional live act.
This race will take place on the main Wenlock Olympian Games day – Sunday 15th July. It will follow the route used in previous years starting and finishing at the Gaskell Field in Much Wenlock. Prizes to the value of £30, £20 and £10 are awarded to the first, second and third male and female finishers while gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the first three finishers in each age category.
The Wenlock Olympian Games golf competition is held at different courses across Shropshire. The first was in 1999 at Telford & Great Hay Golf Course, and other venues have included Bridgnorth, Shrewsbury, Shifnal, The Shropshire at Muxton, and The Astbury at Chelmarsh. 2018 sees the competition once again at the lovely Bridgnorth golf course on Monday 16th July, and our thanks to Bridgnorth Golf Club for making the venue available for the event. Teams of 4 holding a registered handicap – men 24 and ladies 30 maximum – compete in 3 categories: Men, Ladies and Mixed (2 X men and 2 X ladies). It’s a stableford competition with the best three balls to count so that every member of the team has the opportunity to contribute. In the spirit of William Penny Brookes, the player with the highest score against their own handicap is made ‘Golfer of the Competition’. The entry form for the 2018 competition can be obtained by visiting the Wenlock Olympian Society web page: http://www.wenlock-olympian-society.org.uk/games/
