Worcester City Run - Half Marathon & 10K routes


Traffic Free, Picturesque Course through the heart of Worcester . The Worcester viaduct provides the fantastic backdrop for the start and finish. The course take's you along public roads, but they will all be closed/segregated to traffic for the duration of the race.

The courses have been designed to be fast and as flat as possible, this will make it great for those wanting to post a fast time and also for those first timers too!


Your race will be chip timed. The timing chip will give you an accurate start and finish time, so there’s no rush to be first over the start line when the gun goes!

10k: 30 minutes – 1 hour 40 minutes

Half Marathon: 70 minutes – 3½ hours

    Did the Half Marathon 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 Half Marathon in 2019

    The 2019 course was a lovely scenic route, fairly flat first half but a few hills after the half way point.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    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.
