Course Details

The Cholmondeley Castle Half Marathon will see competitors undertake 3 laps of the spectator friendly 7K estate loop.

Starting adjacent to the cricket pitch and in full view of the castle the 1st K of the course follows a well worn track to an area of the estate called Cattle Crush. At this point and for the next 4.5K runners follow the internal estate tarmac road that takes them past the estate chapel, the Old Hall and out to the Beeston Lodge Gate before they double back and head towards the castle itself.

After passing the huge Victorian stable and supporting dove-cote runners will head uphill to the landscaped area behind the castle before turning right and heading steeply off-road up to the top of Castle Hill which affords a view of the stunning Peckforton Hills to the north of the estate. The final 1K of the circuit is mostly downhill off road passing the castle tea rooms, over the croquet lawn and down the main lawn of the castle.

With the finishing line in sight runners turn left at the fork and continue around for the 2nd and 3rd laps. Finally, with third lap complete, runners turn right into the finishing straight and cross the finish line with the castle as a backdrop, to receive their medal and the now famous finishing line banquet!

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a brand new, closed road, central London run. It is the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and City of Westminster and the first event will take place on the 23 March 2019.

The event is not your average half marathon! From cultural landmarks and heritage to the city's quirky and hidden secrets, runners will get to explore the capital on a route like no other!

10,000 runners will start on Pall Mall, finish by Downing Street and have fabulous views of Londons most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Pauls Cathedral, Nelsons Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.

The event will also deliver a pan-London community engagement programme and involve London wide schools, boroughs, community groups, cultural organisations, sports clubs and businesses in developing the event and on the day.

The event is owned by baby charity, Tommy's who came up with the idea in 2014. Tommy's are delighted to be launching this exciting new event with the support of Westminster City Council and the City of London Corporation.

The organising team would like to wish you best of luck and promise that we will do everything we can to make this race the most enjoyable one you have entered this year.

If you only enter one half marathon this year, make it the Manchester Half Marathon.

One of the flattest and fastest around. The only 41m of elevation gain and a 2 mile + finishing straight, we expect to see some very fast times here.

Great entertainment, outstanding crowd support and glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket Club, plus a medal and a technical t-shirt for all finishers!

To give you an idea of how fast this course is, 74% of the first 50 finishers ran a personal best or a season best. 56% of the top 250 ran a PB or SB. This is your half marathon to literally smash it!

Welcome to the Glencoe Marathon Gathering, featuring the full 26.2 mile Glencoe Marathon, the Mamores Half Marathon and the Glen Nevis 10K.

The off-road marathon is an epic trail run that ascends a total of 1,608 metres through the heart of Glencoe and into the foothills of Ben Nevis.

The route snakes through the pass of Glencoe, surrounded by the towering remains of this ancient super volcano, before climbing 500 metres up the fearsome Devils Staircase. From the eastern edge of the Aonach Eagach Ridge you look straight onto the mighty Buachaille Etive Mor (the great herdsman) before dropping back to sea level at Kinlochleven where the Mamores Half Marathon starts. Climbing up through the Mamores the route undulates until the descent into Glen Nevis and the base of the mighty Ben Nevis, the UKs highest peak.

The Glencoe Marathon Gathering is organised by WildFox Events, Scotland's original adventure challenge company. Over the past fifteen years Wildfox Events has have offered participants an unrivalled experience and a range of events in some of the most stunning parts of the UK.
