On Shrewsbury Half Marathon
The On Shrewsbury Half Marathon offers a perfect combination of history and scenery, its much-loved course taking in Shrewsbury’s Medieval city centre and the beautiful Shropshire countryside. The race starts and finishes at Shropshire County Showground, home to a fully-equipped race village.
The 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.
All finishers receive a bespoke medal, technical t-shirt, goody bag, free pre- and post-race massages and free race photos. Grab your place now - see you in Shrewsbury in October!
