Battlefield Run routes

Set in the heart of Northamptonshire, the Battlefield Run starts and ends in Naseby, home of the famous Battle of Naseby where, in 1645 Oliver Cromwell defeated Charles I in the key battle of the English Civil War.

Taking advantage of the rolling Northamptonshire countryside this beautiful and peaceful road run covers 2 laps for half marathon, one lap 10k and an out and back 5k.

    Kit List

    There are no specific kit requirements but the route is always on road so there are no need for trail shoes - normal running trainers are great!

    Spectators

    There are spaces for spectators all along the route and the roads are very quiet - please be cautious if you are driving that there may be a runner around the next corner!

    Volunteers

    On Your Marks are an awesome organiser set up in memory of a budding 14 year old triathlete who died of meningitis - they're always very keen for volunteers and you can reach them at [email protected]

      Hello, a friend of mine is no longer able to run the half. Am I able to have her number transferred to me? I note entries have closed. Is this because they are full? Is there any chance that my daughter could sign up for the 10k? And my husband for the half. We would be coming from Bournemouth so want to make it a worthwhile weekend to remember.

      Hi, this event didn’t happen. People turned up to the event to participate but no one turned up to organise the event. No one at the time could get hold of On Your Marks Events to find out what was going on. Do you know anything about this event being cancelled or can you help to find out what happened?

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Utterly terrible and not worth a rating. The event organiser On Your Marks Events did not show up. So kept booking fee and did not refund the money. Lets' Do This promised a refund, but after contacting three times they too did not fulfil their obligations. Total rip off. Have reported to the Police and Action Fraud. Do not book this event or with this organiser.

      Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      I had contacted the company via email three times over as many months including last week requesting race instructions but no reply to any of them. I didn’t travel from the south coast in the end and so relieved I didn’t seeing that it never took place. Livid someone has stolen my entry fee.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Completely disappointed and ripped off - the event organizer did not turn up.
      John Karl Tanton at On Your Marks Ltd - complete scammer and con-artist. Avoid this man and his events company at all costs.

      Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Absolutely disgusting! No preparations were made for this; no road signs or banners to mark route or promote the run. And no rep or organiser turned up. Nothing but a scam!

      Absolute scammer. Organisers simply didn’t show up. No cancellation and no refund. Read all the other negative reviews and do not sign up!

      Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      No one showed to organise this event. No communication to say the event had been cancelled. Very disappointing and will avoid events organised by On Your Marks Events in the future.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Absolutely atrocious. The organiser didn’t even turn up! Nothing else I can say except don’t use Let’s do This and On Your Marks Services.
    • Did the 10K in 2019

      The event organiser didnt even show up! Ignored all our calls and decided to leave a bunch of runners waiting at the event start without telling anyone it wasnt going ahead. Disgusted beyond belief! Dont book in on any events run my On Your Mark's Events as they probably wont even show up even though they took our money!
