Route information
Enjoy this family-friendly running event in the historic city of Worcester as it returns for its 10th anniversary, with a vibrant atmosphere and thousands of other runners. Offering a half marathon, 10k and juniors' 3k or 1 mile, there's something for everybody at this event.
The course is traffic-free and picturesque, weaving through the heart of the cathedral city, with the Worcester viaduct providing the fantastic backdrop for the start and finish. The course takes 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, making them perfect for those wanting to achieve a quick PB or beginner runners trying a half marathon or 10k for the first time.
