Course information

The Shrewsbury course will take you around the grounds of The Quarry using the tarmac paths and some of the grassed areas along the river. The course is wheelchair friendly but assistance will be needed due to the grassed areas. The course is mainly flat but does have some inclines.

Please arrive 30 to 45mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Meeting point

The start line is found on the tree-lined pathway, near the Dingle Gardens.
