We are proud to be the new organisers of the Nuffield Health Shrewsbury Half Marathon. In 2016 we will offer our runners the opportunity to take in both the medieval town centre of Shrewsbury as well as some of Shropshire’s beautiful countryside.
The course begins and ends at the Shropshire County Show ground. The 53-acre ground lends itself to all sorts of events, with ample parking, 100 toilets and an extensive camping facilities, the showground has the capacity to cater for all.
You run along the river in the beautiful Quarry, home of the Shrewsbury Flower show, then through the historic town centre before heading out over the English bridge to do run a loop in the Kingsland estate.
After you “conquer the Wyle Cop” you then head out to run the second half of the race in the Shropshire countryside before finishing back in the showground where you will pick up your medal, tech t-shirt and goodie bag.
Register now, affiliated £24.50 & non affiliated £26.50.
Here is our route for 2016. We have altered the finish slightly to give a longer finish straight in the showground. The course has been measured and is licensed with Run Britain.
