Leicester Marathon 2018 - a city centre marathon and half marathon taking place Sunday 14th October. Run either race or relay option or come along and cheer everyone on!

Leicester Marathon & Half Marathon route

Every year The Leicester Marathon is only possible thanks to the incredible support of hundreds of volunteers on race day.

Volunteers marshal both in the city and out in the county, man water stations, help on the park. We simply couldn’t run the event without you.

If you are able to spare some time on Sunday 6th October and would like to marshal at this year’s event please do get in touch on the email address below.

When will I receive my race pack?

Almost all runners will have their race packs posted out two weeks before the event. This will contain your bib number (with chip attached), along with all final details for the event.
