14 March 2023 - Beginners Group

Do you want to take up running? Or do you know someone that would like to? The Shropshire Shufflers beginners course starts on April 17th at 7pm (arrive 18.55) in the Quarry.

The course takes complete beginners or people returning to running after a long break and builds up gently so everyone can complete 10km. The course takes about 17 weeks and the sessions start off very gently so that all can take part.

The Beginners Course is open to non members, though we do ask you join after three sessions have been completed. It’s run by qualified coaches and run leaders and the vast majority of past participants have enjoyed the experience. Any questions or to join please email Graham at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

08/12/21 - Run leaders guide update 

Updated run leaders guide and what we ask runners to consider when attending running sessions

In December 2021 we updated the guide for run leaders (found on the coaching section). Its reinforces the expectation that runners;
  1. will use the booking system before attending sessions (please contact a committee member about this if this causes you any difficulties)
  2. will wear appropriate footwear, hi-viz clothing and not use head torches or bright lights that can cause disruption to other runners when doing turnarounds
  3. will advise run leaders of any potential injuries and if they have to leave a running session early 
These expectations are there to help you and your follow runners have fun and safe sessions. Please do feedback any comments on these or other running issues to the coaching team (details found in the coaching section) as we are always looking to improve what we can offer to runners in our great club
