Shrewsbury Half Marathon 2018


Secure your place now in the 2018 Shrewsbury Half Marathon!

A total of 5,000 places are available for this popular half marathon that offers a perfect combination of history and scenery, with the route going through Shrewsbury’s Medieval town centre and some of Shropshire’s most beautiful countryside.

The race starts and finishes at the Shropshire County Show Ground, an impressive 53-acre venue where the race village is also located, plus plenty of activities and entertainment for runners and spectators.

The UKA-accredited course follows the river in the Quarry and continues through the historic town centre, past hundreds of listed buildings and down steep narrow streets, before heading over the English bridge to run a loop of the Kingsland estate. Runners then ‘conquer the Wyle cop’, the UK’s longest row of uninterrupted independent shops, and head out to run the second half of the race in the rolling Shropshire countryside.

A UKRunChat pacing team will be supporting the 2018 Shrewsbury Half Marathon to help runners achieve their target times.

All finishers receive a medal, technical t-shirt and goody bag. Free pre- and post-race massages are also available.
