Shrewsbury School

Please sign up for Shrewsbury's first-ever marathon, going right past the School

Tuesday 15 January 2013

Shrewsbury is hosting its inaugural marathon on Sunday 23rd June, and the course (two laps for half marathon, four laps for the marathon) will be following the perimeter of the school site along the Ashton Road all the way from the Gorswen tennis courts to the top of Butler Road at Rigg's.

We are thinking about entering a 'Team Shrewsbury School' if there are enough people interested - a number of staff have already signed up to enter, but we'd particularly like to have some parents and possibly some of our more experienced pupil runners too.

With the event taking place right outside the school, there is likely to be a real buzz around the site that morning, and we should be able to rely on some stirring support running along Ashton Road!

Please see the Shropshire Star's article on the marathon, which is being organised by 'In the Running' from Market Drayton.
