The Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury 10k event 18/3/18 has been POSTPONED.
Parts of the course have been affected by the adverse weather compromising the safety and welfare of competitors. Following discussions with Shropshire Highways team and the Met Office, it is apparent that routes accessing Shrewsbury have also been badly affected in the last few hours.
Forecasts have been closely monitored and with Shrewsbury remaining on the edge of weather warning areas the decision to postpone was held off for as long as possible.
We are disappointed not to be able to deliver the event as planned but our primary concern is the safety and welfare of competitors, spectators and volunteers.
The event will be rescheduled later in the year. (date to be announced).
Please await further email instructions and check the website and facebook page for updates.
