The St Neots Half Marathon is firmly established on the race calender with a developing reputation for putting on a top class event. The course is renowned as potential for PB's as its three mile downhill finish allows for some seriously fast times. 2015 saw a complete sell out of 1500 race entries within six hours of opening. This year is shaping up to be an even better race. The new and improved start and finish for 2015 worked well and we be in place again for 2016.

Run at Stanwick Lakes events are organised by Rockingham Forest Trust, the same organisation that manages the 750 acre Stanwick Lakes nature reserve. Headed up by our resident runner Becky Gill the events have started to take shape with our end goal of making the events a great experience for all types of runners all year around.
Rockingham Forest Trust is a self sustaining, environmental charity. All the income made by the Trust is reinvested back into the site to ensure that the high quality is maintained for all visitors to enjoy.
The money raised through the running events allows the Trust to repair and maintain the 7 miles of gravel paths, add new exciting adventure play kit for the children and also helps the Ranger team continue their fantastic conservation work that keeps the site as one of the gems of Northamptonshire with its SSSI (site of special scientific interest), SPA (special protected area) and RAMSAR (important internationally recognised wetland site) status.
A choice of 5k, 10k and half marathon distances at Stanwick Lakes, one of the best nature reserves in the Country. The courses all use the purpose built gravel paths that interweave around the many lakes in the picturesque Northamptonshire countryside, and with a relatively flat terrain these runs have seen many a pb. Starting and finishing close to a large play area, this is an ideal day out for the whole family.
