Shrewsbury Half Marathon returns on Sunday 6th October 2019 with a new autumn date and plenty to look forward to after the success of the 2018 event. The race will welcome an increased capacity for 2019 and feature two new race distances – a Family 1.1 Mile for families and young runners, plus a Cumulative Half Marathon where participants run 12 miles in their own time and complete the final 1.1 mile on race day. Together, the races open the event up to all ages and abilities and will contribute to a superb atmosphere on the day.
Shrewsbury Half Marathon offers a perfect mix of history and scenery, the 13.1-mile route taking runners through the streets of Shrewsbury city centre before heading out into the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Once again a team of UKRunChat pacers will be helping runners to achieve their targets and there will be first-class entertainment at the race village at Shropshire Country Showground.
Entry to Shrewsbury Half Marathon includes: bespoke medal; technical t-shirt; goody bag; free pre and post-race massage and free race photos worth £19.99. Entry from £26 (affiliated) / £28 (unaffiliated).
The Family 1.1 Mile costs £8 for children aged 11 and above running unaccompanied, and also per adult. Entry costs £5 per child aged 4-10 accompanied by an adult. All finishers of the Family Mile receive a medal. The Cumulative Half Marathon costs £15.
