A countryside race organised by Myddle Primary School’s PTA will take place on Sunday, April 21st.

Organisers have reported that entries for the 10K, 5K, and 1 mile fun run have been flooding in. The race is held annually to raise funds for the school.

Myddle Primary School PTA member, Rebecca Sparks, who is Race Director for the 2024 event said, “Preparations have been going really well for next month’s run. We have secured several local businesses to sponsor the event which will help fund the race paraphernalia needed, including the medals which every participant will receive.”

The headline sponsor has been announced as the Shingler Group, with additional sponsorship from DMOS People, Beech’s Fine Chocolates, Sales Blueprint, GS & PA Reeves Ltd, Torq, Dairi-Pak, and MJ Parkers Ltd.

Rebecca adds, “It’s great to see lots of entries coming in. Whilst we have local parents and teachers getting involved, there are running enthusiasts from all over the county who like to compete. Our multi-terrain country run goes across fields and woodland, and there’s a great community atmosphere where everyone can enjoy the fun of the day. Get signed up now!

“Even if you’re not competing, we’d love to welcome you to cheer on the runners, and enjoy our cake sale! We’ll also have Dough & Grill serving hot food, and crafts for kids in the village hall from Myddle Youth Club.

“If you have young children, encourage them to do the 1 mile fun run – it counts towards the Shropshire Primary Schools Half Marathon total.”
