Event summary

After a hugely successful inaugural. The Half Marathon is now a permanent fixture in the Kielder Marathon Weekend. If the marathon is a stretch too far and the 10K is over all too quickly, then here is your perfect challenge. The Kielder Half Marathon will have some dedicated parking near the start line on the Dam for competitors. All kit and spectators are then taken to the finish via the usual bus service which will operate a return arrangement from the finish area. Why not make a short break of it and bring your friends and family along? There is plenty to do in and around Kielder Water and the wider Northumberland countryside! Use the accommodation link to look for places to stay.

Route description
Route description

The Half Marathon will start on Kielder Water’s spectacular Dam providing an inspirational backdrop for those taking part and spectating. The route then heads in to the forest on the North Shore along the forestry road and winds away from the Dam for approximately 3 miles to eventually turn and join the Lakeside Way. From this point the course follows the usual marathon route back across the dam and on to Leaplish Visitor Park and the finish line!
