Shrewsbury Half Marathon 2017
We took over the running of the Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 2016 to great success and are looking forward to building on the hard work we did last year and welcoming friends, old and new, to take part in the 2017 event. 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, 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.
Registration is now live: affiliated £25.50 & non affiliated £27.50. Team entry: £102.00.
