The half marathon course is predominantly flat, and undulating in parts. The majority of the course takes pace on road but please be aware that some sections are a little uneven - bear in mind you may want to consider your choice of running shoes if the course is particularly wet. There will also be plenty of on course entertainment, details of this will be posted on the organiser website when confirmed.

Water and energy drinks will be available out on the course and at the finish line.

All runners will be issued with a colour coded race number that reflects the estimated finish time you provided to us on your entry form.

By Bus

Information on options for travelling by bus will be available from the Nottingham City Transport website. Bear in mind that multiple road closures will be in place, potentially obstructing some routes.

By Tram

Competitors will be able to purchase a £2 event pass, and a regular service should be running. You'll be able to purchase these at ticket machines, just select the 'Event Ticket" option - your race number acts as proof of your participation, so make sure you keep this on you when travelling.

Victoria Embankment (NG2 2JY): A limited amount of car parking will be available during Saturday and Sunday on part of the Recreation Ground, on a first come first served basis. This car park has no entry or exit time restrictions. However, please note that due to its proximity to the Race Village you may experience some minor delays in leaving depending on the time of day.

Yes, you'll be able to leave your baggage at the drop in the race village. You'll find a separate label in your race pack that you can use to mark your bag. We recommend you do not leave valuables in your bag, as it is left at your own risk.
