When can I do it?
You can complete the half marathon at a time of your choosing, from Sunday 26th November onwards. Although the time of day that you complete it on is completely up to you, some lights are only switched on from 3-4pm when it is dark outside. We would also strongly advise avoiding the first two Saturdays in December if you can, as the route gets extremely busy on these days.
