Route description
Route description

The route starts and finishes at Sandilands and follows a two lap route around the streets of Croydon. There will be an initial shorter loop followed by two long loops, so runners need not be surprised as they see the finish after mile 1.

Please not that the roads will not be closed. On the main roads of the course you are required to run on the pavements. The race crosses a section of the Tram Link line and while we will have stewards on duty, it is your responsibility to be alert of any trams. At Oaks Road, should the red lights show you must stop.

A well organised small race. Great value compared to some other half marathons given that it’s chipped timed, and a nice medal and snacks upon finishing. Also photos were taken and uploaded to Facebook. Quite a lot of hills but a surprisingly rural feel to the race in parts. Very friendly and supportive marshals cheering us on and water stops provided from the Scouts. Also grateful for the presence of the ambulance crew who cycled around and those at the start/finish line. Pleased I chose this race as my first half.

This was my 4th half marathon and I enjoyed it a lots. It’s close up my home so was convenient and a nice local event. Can serve as a good training for a spring marathon or a nice half on its own. Don’t expect big crowds but a friendly relaxed vibe, well organised and friendly and helpful marshals
