Shrewsbury 10k entries open

Shrewsbury’s 10k takes place on Sunday 15 March and will see runners exploring the scenic county town. Everyone who participates in the run on Sunday March 15 will receive a medal designed by Shrewsbury School pupil Will Cowper, who won a competition to design the award.

Organisers expect around 2,300 participants to take on the challenge; well over 1,000 people have already signed up to complete the run. The route loops the town, taking in Shrewsbury School as well as many of the town’s other landmarks.

Organisers of the popular Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury 10K invited students to create a medal and a delighted Will explained: “I originally thought about the design as the evolution of the new course. I thought I would include Charles Darwin, a former pupil here, and the theory of evolution, along with the main school building. It’s a good representation of the school.”

You can still sign up for the 10k at
