As many local runners will know, unfortunately, the previous format of the Swindon Half Marathon ran its last race in 2015. Swindon has a huge, and vibrant, running community, so were bringing back the race, but in a new format, which we feel is much more fitting to the runners of not just Swindon, but something that people will want to travel to the town for. Swindon is a large town with easy routes to the surrounding area, so deserves a race on a much bigger scale than what weve had over previous years.
The new course is very flat making it the perfect opportunity to go for a PB. It starts and finishes in the town centre passing the Magic Roundabout, the County Ground, the Oasis, the Railways, the McArther Glenn Outlet Village as well as Old Town on the way. With a split start finish, we are able to keep the surrounding area open for local residents which we weren't able to do with the old loop format. Overall the event is bigger and better than ever. We look forward to welcoming you all to run with us on September 22nd 2019!
