Course Details

We will have marshals all around the course as well as mile flags. The course is on the roads/paths in the park:

Half Marathon – 6.5 laps
10k – 3 laps
5k – 1.5 laps

Please be aware that we have a lead bike on the front of each race. In the event that the course is a multi lap course, be aware that the lead bike might catch up behind you, and will be communicating which side the bike will be passing. In the interest of safety to yourself, other runners, pedestrians and our marshals, it is very important that instructions are listened to, and that if you are wearing headphones, your music is at a level that will allow you to hear instructions clearly.

Also, please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.

FAQs

Baggage
We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.

Toilets
There will be portaloos for all runners a little walk from the Start/Finish so we recommend you take this into account and plan before the race starts.

Results
Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Since you've asked, my race experience was one of a kind....Due to not properly, or at all, depending on which way you look at it, training for the half marathon, it was a challenge like no other. With it being my first outdoor run ever, my limbs did not know what hit them. The only way I can describe the excruciating pain that my body experienced is to imagine your legs being grated down to bare bone with a blunt cheese grater, while at the same time, slowly but surely being stabbed vigarously in the lungs with a wooden spoon, until no more blood could bleed out but just enough to keep the pulse beating.Other than the above, it was a great experience and a great course, and would recommend it to anyone. Top event. All the best! Ethan

    Hi there, you are welcome to run with a buggy :) the organiser has asked that runners with buggy's stick to the back at the start of the race in order to avoid congestion. Hope you enjoy the event!
