Route information
There is nothing quite like the gorgeous scenery of the Cotswolds and the Cheltenham Half Marathon and 10k is set right in the heart of it. Starting and finishing at the Cheltenham Racecourse gives runners a huge morale boost as they set off and as they come into the home stretch.
The route hits iconic towns like Montpellier, Landsdown and the old Honeybourne Line. Truly an amazing opportunity to see the best of British countryside and get your heart racing.
The brand new 10k route will follow the first and final 3 miles of the Half Marathon route.
The Community Mile is designed to encourage first-time runners, families, and friends to come together and challenge themselves to get active for a fitter, healthier life.
The race will be clearly marked and marshalled.
Participants will be asked to move onto the pavement if they fall behind the road re-opening schedule – on sections where there is no pedestrian footpath, participants will be re-routed. Everyone will be greeted at the finish with their medal and other rewards.

Crowds
Spectator Info
Spectators play a huge role in building an electric atmosphere, giving runners that extra boost when their legs are feeling heavy. It is strongly encouraged to cheer, clap and call out a name you see on a runner's bib to encourage them to keep going.
The noise created at the finish line is especially important as it helps the runners find that extra bit of energy they didn't know they had. So bring along your friends and family to support you and others in this rewarding and unforgettable experience.
