Nuffield Shrewsbury Half Marathon 2015

I doubt it's in the running that raised £40k it will be an estimate of the amount raised by the individual runners, and th organisers will be taking the credit for it.

The organiser is lying low until it's time for people to enter next years race.

Totally agree Chapelchap. According to the results I was third in my age group, and the race advertisement stated that there were prizes for first, second, and third in each category. Like you I have emailed 'In the running' and received no response. I think the organiser is hoping it's all been kicked into the long grass now. Well I for one will not let that happen. Plus I do not want this man in charge of races in my home town.

The organiser was approached by a fellow runner friend of mine after the race, and dh asked him about the missing half mile. The guy didn't want to know, and basically shrugged his shoulders and walked off. I too have emailed 'in the running' and have not received a response with 24 hours as they promise. Why am I not surprised.

honestly they couldn't organise a round of drinks in a brewery.

That's the third running of this race, and the third time the organisers (in the running) have made huge mistakes. To advertise it as being the same course as last year and then to change it, and shorten it by half a mile is unforgivable. It looks bad on my home town, and the town deserves a good race. I hope the results are made null and void as I don't want if appearing on my Run Briitain handicap.

Well done to every runner that took part today, a great achievement on such a challenging course. I was just spectating for this one but agree with comments about organisation. The cone placement and signage were poor, and in the Quarry park many Marathon runners were having to dodge pedestrians on the route. Shrewsbury can easily take a two lap marathon or even a one lap event with a little imagination, Chester is a fine example of this but that Marathon is organised by runners for runners not by a business. Still as a runner and a proud Salopian I am so pleased to see this kind of event in the town....GREAT JOB RUNNERS

I have just emailed the organisers about the route through the Quarry Park. I worry that the eventual route will mean running up and down the same path the whole length of the park three times. Surely the route will have been accurately measured by now so they must be able to publicise it. I ran the rest of the route the other week and its quite tough for an urban half/full marathon, so I don't think there will be many pb's. Still its a beautiful town in a beautiful county, but there again i'm bias being a Shrewsbury boy!! Just hope the organisers get it right!!!

The incline is on Kingsland Road. The route turns right off Longden Road by the old brewery, then drops into a dip and then climbs all the way to Shrewsbury School. I'm 53 and not very quick 3.44.41 Chester Marathon, and i've been training on that hill and believe me when I say i'm blowing bubbles when I get to Shrewsbury School.

I think it depends on how fit you are. Its my home town marathon and I am unsure about signing up. The two hills are particularly long, but they are steep and as there are four laps they will be daunting the later stages of the race. I may opt for the half marathon as I do want to run in my home town, but I think the marathon might be difficult if its hot and rather tedious over four laps.
