The Severn Bridges was first put on in 2009 by Shropshire Council with the key goal of encouraging people who might not think of themselves as runners to try a 10km.
When the Council decided to stop running the event after Covid they asked the Shropshire Shufflers to take over.
We leapt at the chance as our ethos is to be a welcoming and inclusive club to everyone interested in running at whatever pace, so race fits in with that nicely.
It isn’t a race for PB’s unless it’s your first…congratulations! It’s a race where you can enjoy the River Severn and the Quarry, enjoy yourself and be in with a chance to win a spot prize. Anyone can be a winner.
It is an EA affiliated race and the 2023 race licence is 2023-45216
Any runner may receive one of the many spot prizes donated by our sponsors
