Festival Organiser, Gordon Downie said, “Shelsley Walsh is the oldest motor sport venue in continuous use in the world. First used in 1905, and is even older than Indianapolis, Le Mans or Monza. Our event provides the unique opportunity for people to take part in the event and ride the historic hill climb course on their own bike. Special “Run the Hill” tickets are limited, and are already selling fast, so booking is essential.”

Advance tickets for the festival are priced at £12, children under 16 go free. For £35 you can run your own bike up the hill climb course.
