Did the race in 2019
The Worcester City Run, both 10k and half marathon, is a great event. The organisation is top notch and the support fantastic. The event has been designed so that the half marathon starts first, then the 10k later, but both finish at the same time, which is really great. The route takes you through and around the city before a scenic trip down the river and back (with some countryside roads for the half marathon). The route takes you past the crowds several times, which is great, but there are some quieter parts too. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a fast, friendly, well organised event.

Did the race in 2019
The 2019 course was a lovely scenic route, fairly flat first half but a few hills after the half way point.

Great flat course,well organized and worth going to again. Like all big events get there early to avoid traffic restrictions and find a parking space.

Hi there. I apologise as I forgot to mention that this event run's in alignment with UK athletics and there are rules on the use of headphones, that they are not recommended. You will need to be able to hear instructions from marshals.
