Shrewsbury's Marathon Runners

This weekend sees the first ever Shrewsbury Marathon taking place in the town centre on Sunday. We will all be cheering for two of our ladies, Clare Gwilt (left) and Deborah Morris (right) as they both run for charity.

Clare comments “I am really looking forward to the challenge and hope that the event is a resounding success for Shrewsbury”.

The race will follow a completely closed route all the way around the town taking in picturesque scenes such as the Quarry Park and the River Severn. It is hoped that many supporters will turn out to cheer on the runners as they pass the crowds en route.

Deborah Morris who is running for the Children’s Charity, The Honey Pot, comments “This is my first marathon and I am quite excited about the whole event. I am hoping to raise a considerable amount for such a worthy cause.
