Shifnal Half Marathon


It is with much regret that the Shifnal Half Marathon due to take place on 28th June is cancelled. The decision has not been taken lightly. After consulting with all involved and the announcement today of the need for continuation of the lockdown and social distancing it is clearly the responsible thing to do. Thank you to those who have already entered – the process of refunding will start as soon as possible. Thanks for your understanding and hope to see you next year

The sixteenth running of the Shifnal ‘Steeplechase’ Half Marathon follows a rural route between the churches of Shifnal, Ryton, Beckbury and Kemberton before returning to Shifnal.

Race Registration

Idsall School/Sports Centre (TF11 8PD) is Race HQ where there is car parking, changing rooms, showers and toilets. Registration will be open from 8.30-9:30am where entries on the day will be possible if places are still available.  Race numbers and information will be posted before the race but if you enter online make sure you bring your signed registration form with you.

If you do not hand in a completed and signed registration form you will not be covered by our insurance and therefore will not be able to run. Some spare forms will be available on the day for those who forget or mislay theirs.

Start Time

The run will start at 10.00 am in Church Street, Shifnal, a short 5 min/10min jog/walk from Idsall School/Sports Centre which is the race HQ and registration and where the race finishes.

Car Parking

There is ample car parking at Idsall School/Sports Centre (TF11 8PD) where race registration is located and the race finishes.
