Join Shrewsbury Half Marathon

We took over the running of Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 2016 and are looking forward to building on the hard work of the last four years by welcoming friends, old and new, to take part in this year’s event.

The course begins and ends at the Shropshire County Show ground. The 53-acre ground lends itself to all sorts of events, and with ample parking, toilets and extensive camping facilities, the showground has the capacity to cater for all.

The race takes you 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 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, banana and drink.
