Route information
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.
Fun Run
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.

Road closures
Following consultation with the local authorities, the route will be run on mostly closed roads. The route has been amended for 2019 following a review with the authorities. Please be aware of reduced access to some areas and a need to take alternative routes. By following suggested diversion you’ll minimise delays to your journey.
Note that roads are closed safely before the first runner may appear to allow time to clear traffic in all directions safely.
Baggage Area
We will have baggage storage on race day. Please use the tag in your race registration pack to label your bag clearly with your race number. Relay runners will be able to have their bag transported via the shuttle buses to collect at the end of their leg. Marathon runners bags will be transported from the start to the finish thanks to Wren Kitchens.
The baggage area will be clearly signposted and is open to all runners. Relay runners will have their bags transported to/from their respective start/finish points.
The help desk, manned by our awesome volunteers, will be open throughout the event. If you have any issues regarding things like race pack collection or missing items don't hesitate to stop by and we will be glad to help!

Spectators are encouraged to come along and view the race from many prime spots. Spectators are encouraged to cycle round the course to spectate as driving may be challenging due to road closures. Cyclists should adhere to the highway code and not use footways or pavements.
What can my family/friends do whilst they wait for me?
They can watch the race around the course, support the fun run, get refreshments and cheer on other runners coming into the finish. If they are planning to spectate around the course, they should take account of the road closures that will be in place and restrictions on other adjoining roads. We are looking at provision of shuttle buses that spectators can use to travel the course to see runners at different points.

There are ample opportunities to watch the races around the course. It is often easier to cycle around the course to spectate. If driving please check the road closure details. If cycling please cycle safely and adhere to the highway code. Cyclists should not use footways or pavements.

Hey there, just to let you know that your friend running the first leg will set off with the entire marathon group. At the change over there might be a little separation but you will defiantly be able to finish the run with your friend. All the best!
