Route information
The half marathon course will start in the shadow of Guildhall in the Town Centre. From here runners will head out to the Race Course and follow its perimeter road back into town. Runners will then pass through Beckets Park before heading to the banks of the River Nene. The race will finish on the front lawn of Delapre Abbey.
The Size 6 route also starts in the city centre before heading off into the surrounding countryside. This is very much a tour of Northampton's heritage sites and runners will be able to experience the very best Northampton has on offer. As with the half marathon, the Size 6 will also finish on the lawns on Delapre Abbey.

Go Beyond Challenge
Our roots are in off road sports. We offer a complete series of Ultra trail runs many of which have become "must do events" in the Ultra race calendar. Staying with the off road and trail theme we have a sprint style duathlon which once again is in a fantastic location with fabulous trails. But we like to provide something for everyone. We are also the organisers of the Northampton Half Marathon and The Pitsford Triathlons (Sprint and Standard), in fact we are a one stop shop for all the races you will ever need. Go Beyond was founded in 2008 and purchased in 2018 by Simon Hollis. We now work with over 30 charities helping them carry out fundraising through sport. So please, come and join us and take your fitness to a new level - and why not raise money for a good cause at the same time.

Did the Half Marathon in 2021
Really well organised, excellent marshalling. Good course, the hill at halfway starts a more challenging section after a relatively easy first half. Will be back (shifts permitting!)

Well organised .encouraging marshals on route clapping you on nice touch. Two strong hills close together need to be prepared for them .
