Farnborough Winter Half Marathon & 5k Fun Run routes
The start and finish area will again be under the famous Airship hangar in Farnborough Business Park, which now stands as a monument to the past as a great piece of industrial art. A revision of the route so that we do not have the two hills in the Farnborough International site makes the route faster than ever. Starting at the famous hangar, the route does a loop of the Business Park before heading out to the Frank Whittle roundabout and around the airfield to Fleet Road. Running along Fleet Road to Farnborough Road the route then drops down Government Hill and then back towards the canal along Shoe Lane, Laffin’s Lane and back onto Fleet Road, from there the route goes back to the finish in the reverse of the route out.
The 5km Fun Run is open to all runners over the age of 8 years (under 12s must be accompanied by an adult), which is on the first 5km of the Half Marathon route and is also traffic-free. The 5km will be chip timed.
- Sold out last year
