Run the Shifnal Half Marathon for Bloodwise and help beat blood cancer

The 14th Shifnal Half Marathon takes a rural 13.1-mile multi-terrain route between the village churches of Shifnal, Ryton, Beckbury and Kemberton, before returning to race HQ at Idsall School Sports Centre. The race was formerly known as the Shifnal Steeplechase and follows quiet country roads, bridleways and footpaths through the Shropshire countryside.

The race is organised by Bloodwise supporter and race director Gareth Morgan and is supported by Lawley Running Club and local volunteers. All proceeds go to Bloodwise.
