ATHLETICS legend Steve Cram CBE is heading to Oswestry later this month to share stories from his glittering running and broadcasting career.

Adrenaline Sporting Events will present An Evening with Steve Cram at Oswestry School, in Upper Brook Street, on Wednesday, April 24 between 6pm and 9pm.

A limited number of tickets for the event, sponsored by The Shrewsbury Club, are now on sale.


Cram was one of the world’s leading middle-distance runners during the 1980s as he won medals at the Olympic Games, World Championships, European Championships and Commonwealth Games.  

He has since become a highly respected athletics presenter and commentator for the BBC and a sought-after coach.

Alan Lewis, the founder and owner of Shropshire-based Adrenaline Sporting Events, said bringing Cram to the town is the latest star to come to Oswestry.

He said: “We have brought a long list of great athletes to Oswestry with the purpose of inspiring people and giving them an opportunity to hear from true sporting legends.

“We don’t have visitors like this to Shropshire week in, week out, so this is quite unique really. 

"Steve will be coming to Oswestry a few days after his commentary duties at the London Marathon.

“The audience will be given a true insight to Steve’s life, about why he chose athletics and when he realised he could be a star, with the focus on his glittering career as an athlete.

“He’s since carried on his athletics journey as a successful broadcaster. 

“There will also be an opportunity for members of the audience to ask Steve a question.

“Without the support from our title partners, these events are almost impossible really, so the support of The Shrewsbury Club is instrumental.”

Dave Courteen, managing director of The Shrewsbury Club, added the award-winning health and fitness club is delighted to be sponsoring An Evening with Steve Cram.
