The Robin Hood Marathon, is a race in Nottingham, England held every year since 1981. The race today incorporates a half-marathon, and a fun-run, in addition to the full marathon.

The Nottingham Post Corporate Challenge is a fantastic event but more importantly it is an opportunity for businesses to give back to the community we live and work in.

What time does the race start?
The Half Marathon starts at: 9.30am
The Mini Marathon will start at 10am after the Half Marathon has started. Therefore, if you are running in the Half Marathon you will not be able to watch or participate the Mini Marathon.

Is there a pre-race warm up?
Yes there will be a pre-race warm at the start line by the Townsend Twins! Get there early to take advantage of this!

How does the race start work?
All runners will be issued with a colour coded race number that reflects the estimated finish time you provided to us on your entry form.
You can only start in the allocated colour/time zone that is shown on your race number, this will help to prevent you going too quickly or slowly at the start. You will be in the same zone as other runners who have the same estimated finish time as you – so make use of it and buddy up!
The start will go in waves with each colour zone being released separately, for example the elites will cross the start line first before the next colour zone is released. Please do not worry this will not affect your chip time, as your chip will start when you pass under the gantry so don't worry if it takes a while to get to the start line.

Will the Mini Marathon have coloured waves to?
Black/First Wave: Age 12 and over. Plus any Corporate Challenge Mini Marathon Runners.
Purple/Second Wave: Age 11 and under. Plus any allocated accompanying adults.
Pink Wave/Third Wave: Age 7 and under. Plus any allocated accompanying adults.

Please make sure you start in your allocated zone, failure to do so will result in disqualification in the Schools Challenge Results.
All competition results for the Schools Challenge will be based on your gun time and NOT your chip time.
