About this event
The Wace Morgan Shrewsbury 10k is the ultimate town race – Run it with family and friends, run for charity, or just to push yourself with a new challenge!
Starting at the iconic Quarry Park, the Wace Morgan Shrewsbury 10k starts with a fantastic route through one of Britain’s finest and most beautiful medieval market towns within the first few kilometres. You’ll take on some hills within the first 3km, enjoying some of Shrewsbury’s residential areas and the town’s major river crossings before passing through the grounds of the prestigious Shrewsbury School.
After the halfway point, you’ll head back towards the town centre and will be welcomed back to the beautiful tree-lined Quarry Park with support from the many spectators. Our 10k event has built a fantastic following of runners and supporters who will be with you every step of the way until the end!
