Did the 10k in 2020
Incredibly upset by the communication from Run Silverstone through cancelled runs due to COVID. The understandably had to rescheduled dates but would not offer a full refund or the ability to hold a ticket for a future event. My Facebook comments were deleted (they were not abusive and received multiple like by other disgruntled runners) and my emails were ignored.

My first time running at Silverstone and I can’t fault the organisation and the course. Friendly marshals and volunteers, easy collection of the racing packs, changing rooms, bag drop, great atmosphere at the start when all distances start together with music and choir. I’ll definitely be back!

What are the course details for the half, ie number of laps?
Steph Ede

Hi there. The route is contained within the Silverstone circuit and so is traffic-free. This is also a potential PB course. The Silverstone circuit is 5.1km and therefore will just be over 4 laps for the half marathon. :)
