Race Entry Information
Shrewsbury Half Marathon Race Entry
The website organising the Shrewsbury Half Marathon is https://www.ukrunchat.co.uk/shrewsbury-half-marathon-2022/
The Shrewsbury Half Marathon begins and ends at Shropshire County Show ground and the route takes in both the medieval town centre of Shrewsbury and some of Shropshire's beautiful countryside. In previous races runners will race along the historical streets of Mardol Head, Milk Street, Wyle Cop, Dog Pole and past Grope Lane. Runners also passed Shrewsbury Library which was formally a school attended by Shrewsbury’s most famous son Charles Darwin. The second half of the race is in the Shropshire countryside before returning back to finish in the showground. However for 2021 this single lap race course has been replaced by a two laps of a different course as shown.
There will be pacers covering the following finish times of 1:30, 1:40, 1:45, 1:50, 1:55, 2:00, 2:05, 2:10, 2:15 and 2:30 plus two tail runners. Finishers receive race photos to download as part of their race package and a finish line treat bag.
Option to plant 5 trees rather than take a finishers t-shirt.
