I participated in the very first leicester marathon, and am pleased to still be fit enough at 75 years to have completed it today. Feel very lucky

Did the race in 2022
Due to the fact that most of the route was in parks, it was terribly crowded and there was no possibility to run fast and I had to slow down a lot to avoid knocking someone over.

Very well organised and marshalled run. Good course - all the way to Watermead Park and back. Didn't like the last mile going up New Walk though, that was just mean!! Great event overall (in spite of the torrential rain!!!)

Love this event as our big city half in Leicester. It's come a long way over the years and definitely one worth doing!
