The organisers of the Shrewsbury Half and Metric Half Marathon have announced Pareto FM as Headline Sponsor of both events, which are now called Pareto FM Shrewsbury Half Marathon (13.1 miles) and Pareto FM Shrewsbury Metric Half Marathon (8.1 miles).
Both events take place in Shrewsbury on Sunday 8th October 2023 and entries are open. After sponsoring Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 2021, Pareto FM has returned as Headline Sponsor for 2023 and also supports the Shropshire Primary Schools Half Marathon, which will see 1,200 children from 23 schools complete the final mile of their cumulative half marathon at The West Mid Showground on Saturday 22nd April 2023.
The Pareto FM Shrewsbury Half Marathon and Pareto FM Shrewsbury Metric Half Marathon both start and finish at The West Mid Showground. A new town centre route has been unveiled for both races, and they take in all of Shrewsbury’s best bits including the Welsh & English Bridge, Kingsland, Porthill, Coleham, The Quarry and Frankwell.
Pareto Facilities Management (Pareto FM) was founded to create the most service focused and customer centric facilities management company in the UK, and to create a revolution in the workplace sector. Its different approach to facilities management has led to Pareto FM becoming one of the most successful FM companies in the UK whilst also changing the face of FM. A team from Pareto FM will be on the start line on 8th October.
Event Director Joe Williams commented: “Following their sponsorship of the 2021 Shrewsbury Half we are excited to welcome Pareto FM back as Headline Sponsor of the two races, which are now called Pareto FM Shrewsbury Half Marathon and Pareto FM Shrewsbury Metric Half Marathon. We are also grateful for the continued support of the Shropshire Primary Schools Half Marathon, and can’t wait to see everyone back at The West Mid Showground.”
Chris Barnes, Associate Director at Pareto said: “We are committed to promoting health and wellness in our communities and are excited to partner with the Shrewsbury Half and Metric Half Marathon and Shropshire Primary Schools Half Marathon to support runners of all ages as they push their limits and achieve their goals. The partnership between Pareto and the events highlights the importance of physical activity and the role that corporate social responsibility can play in fostering healthy communities.”
