The organisers of Shrewsbury Half Marathon, UK Run Events, have announced On as Official Sports Brand for the event on Sunday 17th June and for the Shropshire Primary Schools Challenge on Saturday 16th June.
Born in the Swiss Alps, On has won international awards for its revolutionary shoes which are known for offering both a cushioned landing and a firm take off. The distinct shoe design creates the sensation of running on clouds, responding to every movement of the foot. It has become the shoe of choice for athletes across the world looking for a shoe that reacts to their individual running motion.
For all those signed up to #RunShrewsbury, it will be a huge bonus to have the presence of such a well-respected brand on race weekend. Runners will be able to learn more about what makes On so unique and try on shoes from their fantastic range of footwear.
On will also have a Run on Clouds arch at the start and finish of all the races, and will be supporting the pacers who will be helping runners to hit their target times in the half marathon.
There are less than 160 places left for Shrewsbury Half Marathon and anyone wishing to run this professional and friendly race is encouraged to sign up now. The closed-road course takes runners through Shrewsbury’s Medieval city centre and out into the stunning Shropshire countryside, making it one of the UK’s most picturesque half marathons.
Race Director Joe Williams commented, “We are thrilled to welcome On as Official Sports Brand of the Shrewsbury Half Marathon. On is an innovative and exciting brand at the forefront of the running industry and it will be a privilege to have their support on race day. We hope that many runners will benefit from their products and expertise, wherever they are on their running journey. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the event in less than two weeks!”
Olly Laws, Sales Director at On, added, “At On, we like to put the fun into the run and we are excited to partner with Shrewsbury Half Marathon to help runners achieve their goals. We are delighted to be part of what promises to be such an inspirational day of running in such beautiful surroundings.”
