The Port Talbot Half Marathon is a exciting run through the stunning Afan forest. Leave the beautiful surroundings of Glyncorrwg Ponds and follow the former railway route down the valley to Pontrhydyfen (birth place of Richard Burton). From here, you turn and follow the opposite side the valley to return to Glyncorrwg.

Without doubt this is one of Wales' most scenic races and without doubt it is one of the cheapest half marathon offering all the participants the same if not more than some of the big city races. We offer electronic chip timing, 4 water stations, bespoke event technical t-shirt and medal plus the all important goody bag.

Through the Great Central Walk disused railway and the closed town and country roads of Britain's railway centre, this is the half marathon you can't afford to miss.

With a fun 1k run for the family too, this is your perfect end-of-half-term day out before all the Hallowe'en and fireworks fun.

Starting at Hart field, you'll quickly find yourself out on to clear country roads and flying round to return to the town centre on 'a linear nature reserve' - the old railway line that is now a recognised wildlife hotspot.

Of course, all this also means a new, exclusive medal and course records in each male and female category up for grabs.

Be there from year one to help this event become a major fixture in the race calendar - we'd love to see you there.

The Winchester Half Marathon is a beautiful run that starts and finishes in the centre of Winchester outside the Guildhall. It's a very scenic route through the idyllic setting of the countryside and takes in landmarks such as St Catherines Hill, Winchester Cathedral and King Alfred the Great.

The route incorporates the high street, Romsey Road and Sparsholt Road to take the runners into the heart of the Winchester countryside.

Towards the end of the route, runners will pass by St Catherines Hill, though fortunately not up the hill! The race finishes back outside the Guildhall with a picture perfect view of King Alfred. This is a day for everyone to get involved from athletes, first time runners, charities, corporate teams, and volunteers.

Fast, flat, fantastic! Choice of half marathon, 10k, 5k. Set in the beautiful Cherwell Valley countryside, the three routes all utilise the Heyford Park Airbase's Runway, RAF Taxiway & NATO Taxiway and are therefore pancake flat, traffic-free and pretty much PB guaranteed! These races are timed perfectly if you are planning to run a Spring marathon, but equally good for those venturing into racing, moving up a distance or just trying to improve times.
