On Sunday 15th March the Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury 10k event will be taking place, with thousands of runners making their way through the streets of Shrewsbury as they compete in the annual road race.
This year we have teamed up with hosts Ultimate Fitness to offer places for runners to sign up and raise money for Shrewsbury Town in the Community by taking part. By working together with Ultimate Fitness we are looking to help encourage an active and healthy lifestyle and raise the profile of the work we do across Shropshire. Starting in the historic market town High Street, the route will soon open up as you take on a couple of hills in the first 3km. You’ll enjoy a taste of Shrewsbury’s residential areas, the towns major river crossings, the beautiful tree-lined quarry park and be welcomed back into the busy Town Centre Square with great support from spectators. Last year there were over 2,000 runners taking part in the event
Jamie Edwards, CEO of Shrewsbury Town in the Community spoke about working with the event. “It’s really nice to have another platform to enable more donations to be made to our charity. It’s also raising the awareness of what we do as we’re not your average charity that you immediately presume is a charity.”
