New year, new you? If you're thinking of taking up running in 2024, why not give yourself some extra motivation by becoming one of our runners in the The Shrewsbury Half Marathon

SYA are looking for runners to help raise vital funding that will help us enhance provisions for young people across Shropshire. 

SYA currently supports or provides over 120 youth clubs in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. In addition to this, youth workers from SYA support local young people through initiatives such as UK Youth Parliament, Health Champions, early intervention mental health sessions in secondary schools and youth clubs specifically for young SEND people and those who are part of the LGBTQAI+ Community as well as offering alternative curriculum sessions and HAF (Holiday Activities and Food)

Runners will be gifted a free place, running vest and goodie bag and in return we ask that a minimum sponsorship of £75 per runner is raised. Interested runners are required to complete an application form which needs to be returned by the end of January 2024.
