The Event

The event offers three different distances: a full marathon, a half marathon, and a quarter marathon, making it suitable for runners of all abilities. 

What makes the Shropshire Run even more special is its friendly atmosphere. Participants can expect a warm welcome and support from both fellow runners and organisers. The course is also closed to traffic, providing a safe and enjoyable running experience for all.

Runners will have the opportunity to run alongside the Mere, one of Shropshire's most scenic spots. The Mere is a large, natural body of water surrounded by beautiful woodland and is a popular destination for visitors to the area.

If you're looking to challenge yourself, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, the Shropshire Run is a must-attend event.
