Hull Marathon routes
The route will now be a faster route with a spectacular start on the Humber Bridge in the shadow of the north tower, runners will run out and back on the southbound bridge deck, meaning the toughest part of the course is completed first.
In mile 7 of the marathon will be a timed 100 metre sprint sponsored by KCOM on the Athletics track at Costello Stadium. We believe this unique feature enables runners to have a go at testing themselves mentally and physically.
We are once again hosting both the 2 person & 4 person relay races, with the assistance of Fitmums & Friends at the three change over points. Following the same route as the marathon, these present runners the chance to still be part of the atmosphere if a marathon is a challenge too far. Form a pair or a team from work, a community group or your running club. Run just to help improve your fitness, achieve a challenge, raising funds for one of our charity partners or all of these!
The relay change over points will be in Pickering Park, Goulton Street just before entering Albert Docks and in Victoria Dock. Buses for the relay runners will be laid on again as well as transport from the finish to the start for the runners.
We are delighted to see the Fitmums and Friends Fun Run back. Open to anyone of any age, the route will be a 3km approx run across the Humber Bridge on a closed road deck.
We will be having pacemakers for the marathon. These will be at 15 minute splits from 3 hours through to 5hrs, 5:30 and 6hrs along with a 3:10 pacer for those aiming for a good for age time to gain entry to the London Marathon. They will be clearly marked on the day. Details will be published in race packs and on the website.
There will be 10 drink stations, at approx every 2 to 3 miles. Drinks will be either cups or bottles. We are looking at reducing wastage on the route and more details about which stations have cups or bottles will be confirmed at a future date.
The event will be supported by North East Medics. All volunteers will know where the nearest first aiders are and first aid points will be listed in your race pack.
There is a short section of cobbles in mile 16 by the around the Marina and Humber Street. Humber Street has a smooth path along the side of the cobbles for the most part.
