Course Details

Located at the foot of the Sussex Downs, the track is the only classic circuit in the world to remain entirely in its original form. Goodwood Motor Circuit originally opened its gates to the public on September 1948, to host Britain’s very first post-war motor race meeting at a permanent venue.

The entire course is inside the Goodwood Motor Circuit on the roads/paths not on grass.

Each mile will be accurately marked out and we have plenty of helpers to keep you quite literally on track and encourage you on your way to that chequered flag finish.

The race involves laps around the circuit. The 5k will be 1 lap, 10k is 2 laps, the Half Marathon is 5 laps and the Marathon will be 11 laps of the circuit.

  • Did the 5k in 2019

    This was my first 5K since finishing a zero to 5K course so I wasn't sure what to expect. The parking was easy to find and the marshals couldn't have been more helpful. Every event marshal I spoke to was friendly and reassuring. There was a group warm up led by a PT, and a choir sung at the finish. Other participants were friendly - I was doing this on my own! The t shirt and medal were great, and I enjoyed the goodies. I'm looking forward to doing it all again in September and hopefully improving me time. Thanks for a great first 5K!
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    This was a really well run event with a nice atmosphere. Great marshalls and good communication in the lead up. My only negative feedback: quite a few reports saying the course was a bit long for the Half and Marathon (about 800m for the marathon & 500m for the HM). Also, no toilets right beside the track so I had to jump a fence or fight through the mass of runners warming up for another distance to get to the loo. Perhaps a little corridor cordoned off for runners to the dash off the track to the toilet block might be a good idea for next year. Would definitely consider doing this race again though!
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Great pre run information with good parking and lovely Marshalls. A PB for my 10k was just the topping on the cake. Runners village was fab and lots of great giveaways so thank you everyone for a fantastic day.
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    Easy to find. Great organising. Great support. Lovely goodies at the end . Fab medal and tshirt. Reasonable price. This is my fastest marathon to date even though I had tired body due to running Taunton a week before and Ooser a week before that again. Great day out

    If I book in for the 10k race can I opt to do the 5k race on the day?


    Steph E21st Feb
    This should not be a problem at all, as long as you notify the race organiser the morning of the event.


    Steph E21st Feb

    I am hoping to bring my family as a cheer squad. Do spectators require a separate ticket?
