Related topics: Leisure, culture and heritage

Runners of all levels are being invited to don their trainers for this year’s Seven Bridges 10k road race and fun run in Shrewsbury this autumn (Sunday 20 September 2015).

The annual event, which will be hosted by Shropshire Council and sponsored by Up and Running, will be held at The Quarry in Shrewsbury and will start at 10am. The event also receives great support from the Shropshire Shufflers, who provide the marshalls for the event.

Participants are encouraged to sign up in advance, either by entering online, or sending an application form to Leisure Services, Shropshire Council, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY2 6ND.

Application forms are available from either Up and Running in Mardol, or Shirehall in Shrewsbury.

People can still sign up to run on the day from 8am to 9:30am, but they will have to pay an additional £3 on top of the normal fee (excluding the fun run).

Charges for the event are:

  • Club runner – £10
  • Non-club runner – £12
  • Fun runner – adult or junior – £3.50

Sean McCarthy, Shropshire Council’s sports development officer, invited runners young and old to take part in the fun:

“The Seven Bridges event has been a great success in the past and we are hoping for more entries than ever this year. The race has attracted people from all over the country, and I would like to thank this year’s event sponsors Up and Running Shrewsbury. I would also like to pass my sincere thanks to the Shropshire Shufflers who have once again agreed to act as marshalls for the event. There really will be something for everyone to enjoy on the day, so why not come along and enjoy the fun.”

People wishing to take part in the event can call Sean McCarthy at Shropshire Council on 01743 255933.
