This will be the 36th year of the Half Marathon. We are proud and unique in presenting gold medals, silver and bronze medals.

The Barns Green Half Marathon is run on closed roads through the beautiful Sussex countryside, passing through the historic Christ's Hospital school. We have live music, food, entertainment, and a funfair at the start/finish. The undulating, double looped route is challenging, with a small section off-road.

Our very popular 10K route goes through Christ’s Hospital School, and last milometer is downhill.

    My 3rd Barns Green 1/2. Weather not great but still a well organised, local (to me!), relatively small race. It’s always well supported by the community with bands, drummers and music playing at various points on the course. It’s great that it’s on closed roads too!

    I like this course because it is challenging in places, and is not completely flat. The course scenery is pretty much the same, ie country lanes so you don’t get any change of scenery except for when you run through Christ’s Hospital. I have ran this event before, but this time the organisation at the start was not great as the race had to be delayed by 15 mins as they could not get all the cards parked and the roads closed. This however may be due in part to the heavy rain that morning and people leaving it later to arrive. That said, once the race started it was a good event with support and music along the route. The organisers put a lot of effort into staging this event each year. I would recommend this race to anyone on the SE.
