Sunday 23rd June 2013 is Marathon Day in Shrewsbury! (20th June 2013)

Residents and visitors are encouraged to support Shrewsbury's first Marathon and half Marathon event which is fast approaching.

The full marathon starts at 9am with the half marathon starting at 9.30am.

When visiting on marathon day, please be aware of the special travel and parking arrangements and plan your journey accordingly, particularly as there may be congestion on roads around the edges of the town centre.

All town centre roads, Longden Coleham, Longden Road and those in the Kingsland area will be closed from 7am and prior to this the traffic management company will be busy setting up the traffic control arrangements on the route.

The event finishes at around 4pm. Most town centre car parks will be unavailable during this time however, the following Shropshire Council car parks will be available:

  • Frankwell and Abbey Foregate long stay car and coach parks open as normal (any season ticket holders for St Julian's car park may use Abbey Foregate).
  • Raven Meadows multi-storey car park will be open between 10am and 5pm with controlled access being made from Smithfield Road and Castle Foregate direction only.
  • In addition to these car parks, the Oxon park and ride will be available between 7.30am and 4pm with the drop off/pick up point being located at Frankwell island.

Coaches please note that you will not be able to set down or pick up passengers at St. Chad's Terrace or elsewhere in the town centre.
