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.

 

Meeting point

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

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

There is no parking at the venue so please use town centre car parks. The roads around the venue can get very busy so please allow time to get to and from the venue. There are limited disabled spaces at The Quarry Leisure Centre car park.

Supporter / spectator access

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19.  Please refer to the section ‘ how we are keeping you safe’ https://raceforlife.cancerresearchuk.org/your-safety for further updates.

We will be giving away bottled water at the finish line. But due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and our plans to reduce single use plastics at our events we encourage participants to bring their own water or hydration fluids on the day.
