Run Silverstone routes

The track is more famous for being the home of some legendary F1 races, but this is an opportunity to run around the iconic circuit on foot. So it's time to put the after-burners on and aim for a new PB!

The route is traffic-free since it all takes place on the Silverstone circuit, although emergency vehicles and authorised vehicles might be on track. It is requested that you are aware of and considerate towards all other runners, spectators, and visitors while you are racing.

There will be pacers during the half marathon race, for those aiming for times between 1hr30mins and 3hr30mins.

There is a festival atmosphere at the finish line, with medals, podiums, and finisher's photos.

The Race Organiser creates outstanding opportunities for people to bring out their best run, swim or cycle performance. We seek out the most inspiring and rewarding locations, develop race routes and event formats, and create a brilliant atmosphere and race day experience – offered at the best possible value. We don’t think it’s ok to ask people who are aspiring to do amazing things to pay huge sums of money, so we charge as little as we can afford, rather than as much as we can get away with.

    Did the 10K in 2019

    My first 10k event in years. Great atmosphere and well organised.
    Running on the track was exciting.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    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!
