Run 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Shrewsbury Half Marathon

The On Shrewsbury Half Marathon will take place on Sunday the 9 October 2022.

The historical and picturesque town of Shrewsbury is a great running location and the course incorporates some of the town's greatest land marks.

What's more, the route is completely closed to traffic for the duration of the race!


  • Sunday 9 October 2022

The Route

The course begins and ends at the Shropshire County Show ground, the route itself takes in both the medieval town centre of Shrewsbury and some of Shropshire’s beautiful countryside.

As you run through the town centre you will be treated to many listed buildings and lots of steep narrow streets with obscure names. You will run along Mardol Head, Milk Street, Wyle Cop, Dog Pole and past Grope Lane to name but a few.

After you ‘conquer the Wyle Cop’ you then head out to run the second half of the race in the Shropshire countryside before finishing back in the showground.
