In short: nice rural run with several challenging hills, very well organised In full: this was my 2nd half marathon and i really enjoyed the change from complete road running, even though a little more difficult, with a slightly slowler finish. Pretty much faultless organisation, loads of water stations, marshalls along the course were supportive. being a local was nice to have support from friends and family during the route. i would recommend this to others and will definately be back next year
Well done Idsall School for organizing a great run. Date of review: July 30, 2009
In short: Organiser responded helpfully emails and the organisation on the day was amazing: no chance of getting lost, lots of water stations, offers of First Aid stations and really encouraging marshals. The photographs made available free are brilliant – hi In full: The Shifnal Steeplechase was my very first competitive run although I happen to use most of the route for leisure running. At 57 years I was happy to finish (190th of 205) in 2:20. The organiser responded helpfully to earlier emails and the organisation on the day was amazing: no chance of getting lost, lots of water stations, offers of First Aid stations at a couple of points and really encouraging marshals. The photographs made available free also have pride of place on my desktop at the moment (sad or what?) – high resolution and superbly taken. Date of review: July 8, 2009
In short: Ticks all the boxes for me!!! In full: I've run quite a few Half-Marathons now, so when I look for future races I look for one that's a bit different, that I haven't run before, that has a smaller sized field, that's got a bit of everything (road, field, track etc) and the Shifnal Half ticked all the boxes for me! Pretty much faultless organisation, loads of water stations, decent medal, fruit and water at the finish and good support.

I ran with an injury to both legs - I really shouldn't have gone through with it - but I'll be back next year "pain free". Date of review: July 7, 2009
In short: Shifnal Half Marathon - Hilly But Well Organised In full: First time doing this race, and its not a PB course, but if your looking for a nice summer rurla run, on mostly traffic free roads, and lovely Shropshire Sceanry then this is for you.
Well orgaised and a good finish area at a local school, and an intresting town center start. Not many spectators, but its a small town!
Plenty of water stations ever two miles, and staffed by some of the most supportive people I have ever seen.
Will be back next year, more aware of the challenge ahead. Date of review: July 7, 2009
In short: Yet again a lovely, well organised and welcoming race. In full: Done this race 3 times now and every year it just gets better. Well done and thank you to all the volunteers who helped to make the race such a success. Date of review: July 5, 2009
