With the very sad news of the cancellation of the 2020 Ironbridge Half Marathon due to COVID-19 (see story here), we are extremely excited to launch the brand new Ironbridge Virtual Half Marathon.
The event is open to everyone at a cost of just £15.00. Once registered, runners compete a 13.1 mile route any time up to the closing date of 31st December (feel free to run the actual Ironbridge Half route if you want). You then submit your data via your Entry Central account, and receive your Ironbridge Half 2020 technical T-shirt and finishers medal. Your e-Certificate will be emailed to you to print out  with final rankings on it after 31st December when all runners have completed.
Entry is quick and easy, and our virtual is open till 31st December 2020.

The Route

The Route will be marked in miles and the course is a down and up multi-surface one lap loop. Start at the arena in Telford Town Park, running through the Town Park and down the Silkin Way, run past Blists Hill Museum and Coalport China Museum into the Severn Gorge. You follow the old Severn Valley railway line past Maws craft centre and the Tile Works/Museum.
