      This run was a well organised, very scenic and friendly run. Organisation was great, pre run details sent out were spot on and precise. The drink stations on the way round were plentiful for a very hot day. The local scouts were running one of them and they were great and encouraging. There was also a sponge stop too which I was very grateful for.The run is not on closed roads, however I did not feel unsafe at any time. They are rural roads, the marshals were plentiful and they were giving plenty of warning about both cars and runners as needed. There is a cut off time of 3 hours for the run. There was a fab medal at the end and I did need to see the first aiders at the end who did an amazing job.2 small problems:there was a timing issue so the results were late coming out and then there were some discrepancies. However a quick email and it was quickly rectified. All the photos are free to download, however if you are a slower runner there isn't many photos and none at the finish line. The person who finished about 2 mins in front of me was the last person to be photographed. I finished in 2hrs 40, well within the time limit.

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      people have left reviews about this being a flat course, which it is, well relatively! there are 2 quite steep small hills to which the decents are pretty short, and for the rest of the course it felt like I was continuously running up hill with long very gradual inclines. maybe just me, it was quite hot too , but just don't expect a totally flat course
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Very warm but a nice run. Atmosphere was ok, but most crowds had cleared when the half marathon runners had finished.As an overall run, I'd say 8 out of 10

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Atmosphere and crowd participation was fantastic, weather was too hot but if you have a race in July that is to be expected. Forty minute delay was very disappointing, people who don't mind the heat will forgive that as it was the first event but not if it happens again. My son , daughter and myself all measured over 13.1 miles ( our sat navs had it 13.17 to 13.20 miles) this is not a complaint I just wondered if you are confident you measured the course exactly.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      the race was delayed by nearly an hour which made the heat nearly unbearable during the long shadeless stretches. water was given in cups which is horrible as you can't carry it with you. but have to drink it on the spot. the first water station gave out water with a very weird lemony taste to it, without saying it maybe wasn't even water. the water stations with cups weren't great organised as people shouted last minute which side was water, which were sport drinks, but by then it was too late to get in lane. thankfully some visitors hosed us down so we stayed cool. the delay was a massive game changer causing lots of discomfort under the given (stable for weeks) weather conditions the race should have been cancelled. the delay caused parking fees as well.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Kenilworth Half Marathon route is an undulating out and back course in the town centre and along quiet country lanes with the first and last part on the Town main street. Although there are several small hills, many runners have obtained PB times on the course.


    The course has a rolling road closure in place.

    • Did the event in 2018

      This was a will-organised event which seems to attract a lot of local club runners. Going through the castle at the beginning is cool and the rest of the course is mostly an out and back along closed rural roads. There is a bit down residential streets on the way in and out of the town.

      It's a hilly course so not one for PB-hunters. Plenty of volunteers at the water stations and a heavy first aider presence.

      The medal was decent and chunky and we also got a reasonable long sleeved technical top.

    • Did the event in 2018

      This was the first time I had done this race as it formed part of my training for the Berlin Marathon which is 2 weeks later. It was easy to find not being local to Kenilworth and the race instructions had been sent a couple of weeks before indicating that all the car parks are free which is an added bonus. I arrived about 7:50 so about an hour before the race was due to begin and I managed to get the last car park space right in the town centre. My advice would arrive 20-30 mins earlier to make sure as otherwise, it could lead to time being wasted looking for a car parking space. Finding and getting my race number from registration was a breeze as it's at the local Holiday Inn which is situated near to the start of the race and right near where I had parked :)So the race began at 9:00 which is nice and early and with the weather being very hot it was nice to know that I would be done before 11:00 baring any disasters to myself on the course.It is an out and back course and I can only describe it as undulating as with every up comes a down. This is pretty much along the entire route so if you are after something flat then this isn't the race for you. I enjoyed the hills and being in the countryside it provided beautiful scenery with all the roads on the course being closed. A water station was every 2.5 miles and they were bottles, not cups!! A bonus for any race!You finish and start in the town centre and get a nice downhill sprint finish once you've rounded the clock tower. At the finish, I received two goody bags including the bespoke medal and a long sleeve technical t-shirt. Overall this was a really enjoyable race and well worth the £25 entry fee!
    • Did the event in 2017

      it wasn't until I checked my garmin post race that I realised there was no flat on this course... but it was epic!! From start to finish this was so wonderfully organised... loads of local club runners there which had the capacity to make Justin average non club running jo very scared... all I had to do was stay ahead of the hubby whom was going at the pace he would be pacing the GNR at to get a PB. Well I got so distracted by the course and the views I forgot about it!,  the stations were vottles not cups and cups and marshals great. the finish was lovely and the medal mint!! And a mars bar to boot in my goodie bag!, well done kenilworth running club!,

      I wish we'd known how far the car park was away from the finish. I suffer badly with cold after a race and would have liked the parking closer to the finish.That is the only negative.

      I enjoyed this event, I know many people dont like laps as it can be boring, but it has its advantages as you nearly always have company, And easier to pace yourself, the only complaint the car park at 5 pound is a bit much, I managed to pay at reception, but was frustrated at the car park as a debit card was wanted to park as a runner I dont take my cards with me.
    • Did the Marathon in 2018

      Great organisation! Yes the course is a little dull BUT there were toilets every mile, a well stocked feed station with water, electrolytes and food every lap and the course was flat. Perfect for me as a first timer

      I had ran a number of short distance races and it was time to tackle a half marathon distance again. I was hoping to complete it in sub 90 minutes but didn’t quite make it (92 minutes in the end).It was still an enjoyable race; it was well supported as it was the same day as Market Harborough Carnival.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Nice course and good drinks stations, great support too. Only downside were the shower facilities at the school were locked at the start even though they were meant to be available. Marshalls weren’t able to help either.
    • Did the event in 2018

      This is the fourth time I have run this half marathon and I have to say, this was the best year yet! The earlier start time, and cooler weather made for ideal running conditions. This year saw the addition of a 5km race, and together with the fun run, meant there really was something for everyone.Registation was easy, with the option of collecting your race number and timing chip in the weeks before, or registering on the day. The clear pre-race information email covered everything from parking to water stops.The course is varied, starting in the town, with the support of the carnival crowds, and leading out through the villages to quieter country lanes. There were plenty of amazing marshals  along the route with some traffic control measures at road crossing points. The route is undulating, with a nice hill towards the end for both the 10km and half marathon routes, followed by a gradual downhill towards the finish show ground.  A free massage was on offer for competitors. Overall a well organised, friendly and enjoyable run, with some challenging parts - thank you Race Harborough

      Yet another very hot racing day in 2018. Could be a fast course in different conditions.
      Quite a lot of runners were struggling with the temperatures on this day - there was plenty of water, but there seemed a lot of areas on route with no cover - can't really be helped. Medical staff were needed for a few people and did a grand job as far as I could tell.
      Starting and finishing at Pride Park was a nice touch - the course went through the city for the first half, and the second half was more along the river, which was really nice.
      Free medal engraving was an added bonus and well worth queuing for.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Would do it again, enjoyed myself and the course
    • Did the event in 2018

      thought the second half of the route through Elvaston Castle park and along the river was very lovely and a nice change from the road. Great local support and very well staffed. A great experience for my first half.

      Toughish undulating road race with a testing hill in the final mile, so not a PB course, but very good for seeing where you're at. Closed road for the first and last mile or so, otherwise open, but well organised and marshalled by runners. Deserved more entries than it had, and numbers should grow year on year as word gets around.

    • Did the event in 2018

      After running the Rutland a couple of times I decided to step up to the marathon at this venue.
      As usual I arrived in plenty of times so both car parks were empty (£4 or £8). I went for the nearest which was the dearest but in my views more practical.
      All the registration was process was great. Small note: the start was slightly delayed 10min to make sure everyone had parked & registered.
      The venue is superb and the route challenging. Great to see that most of the cattle grids were filled in or side gate open. As a tip on the course...if doing the marathon save something for the second half...the route round the peninsula is hilly!
      My only complaint (very minor) is the lack of saulty options at the very regular feed stations. The volunteers were absolutely fab as were the marshals and organising team...I’ll be back!
    • Did the event in 2017

      Fantastic event and my first half marathon.
    • Did the event in 2017

      A nice location but the race is hampered with setting the half and full off at the same time. This made the first 7-8 miles extremely congested running along a very narrow track which formed the out and back section!!

      Central part of the race was better once you had left the half mara course behind.

      Good race village and a unique medal.

    • Did the event in 2018

      I wanted to run this race when I came across it, as it's not too far away from where I live. At first glance it's a little different: park the car in Long Eaton, catch the bus to Langley Mill and then run back along the banks of the canal pretty much all the way back to Long Eaton. It seemed like there was potential for things to go wrong, but it was actually a very well-run and organised event.Particpants were allocated a wave, based on the predicted finish time given on sign-up. From there a bus time was allocated from West Park in Long Eaton to the start, near the Great Northern pub in Langley Mill. Information on what to do on arrival was a little short, but marshalls were on hand to organise the boarding of the bus.  Runners were set off from Langley Mill at 15 minute intervals, a sensible arrangement due to the limited overtaking opportunities along the tow path. This meant the fast runners in the first wave were finishing as the back of the field set off, but that wasn't a major issue. The briefing was first class, probably a bit too much information to take in in one go, but better too much information than not enough. The tow path was open to other users, but everyone I came into contact with was courteous and polite in letting the runners through. There were 4 drinks stations spaced out at regular intervals en route, serving water and energy drinks, meaning that it wasn't really necessary to carry extra water. In order to get the full half marathon distance, a short loop away from the canal and around some woodland as the route gets towards Long Eaton. This was a nice respite from the tow path and was very well marshalled and signed - as was the entire route. Upon reaching Long Eaton, the path climbs a footbridge over the canal, goes through school grounds before coming out in West Park where it finishes at Long Eaton Rugby Club.There wasn't much in terms of local support, apart from lots of people asking what we were doing! The friendly and supportive marshalls more than made up for this though.  Finishers received a medal and T Shirt. In total, this event cost me £24.96 to enter, plus £4.50 for the bus to the start. In these days of 10k races asking well over £30 to complete - often with extra charges on top - I'd say the Erewash Half represents cracking value for money and would thoroughly recommend it.

      This was my first time doing thenhalf as have always opted for the marathon and this wasn’t on offer last year. The route had changed slightly but still took in key sights like the football ground and the castle. The marshalls were excellent and the start and finish area had everything you needed and plenty of loos!
    • Did the event in 2018

      Registered online and received the race pack in good time with great information. I also liked the weekly email counting down and offering good info on training & recovery etc.
      The race village was busy and as expected queues for the toilet very long.
      Once in the waiting pens they released us in waves which worked well as the course does narrow at the end of the first straight.
      Living in Nottingham I am probably bias but the course is scenic taking you around the Park and castle (very hilly) and Wollaton Park are the main highlights.
      Aid stations were easy to find and offered Lucazade in Wollaton which was a nice touch but the plastic water pouches were horrible and loads of people were complaining about them.
      Support throughout was good as it wasn’t the best weather for spectators.
      The goodie bag was slightly disappointing. No technical t-shirt and previous years medals looked better in my opinion.
      A final word for the St Johns Ambulance as I had a “wobble” at the finish line and collapsed due to lack of oxygen. The staff were great looking after me.
      I will be back next year!
    • Did the event in 2018

      This was my return to racing after a lengthy time out due to injury and what a race to pick. Fab support, an interesting course, great stewards, and a certain something that made it big enough and intimate enough at the same time. Interestingly there was no technical tshirt which was a shame BUT the bling was very, very nice indeed. However, be warned, this isn't a course for the feint hearted of the PB hunter. It's undulating and by that I mean you need to embrace the hills (yes, plural). But in doing so you will run through a park, past a mansion, city walls, lovely rural areas as well as through the city. Will I be back, absolutely. Its a cracker. Although watch out for the grass finish at the end, its not for everybody and can play havoc with the legs.

      I completed the spring run in 2018 and it’s beautiful. The course is well marshalled and there’s water stations throughout. You get jelly babies at registration and chip timing which gives you a time almost instantly. A flat and fast course with marshals stopping traffic at the only road cross.I was a little disappointed with the entry price as for £20 you only got a run of the mill medal (I’m not even sure it says Stanwick Lakes on it) and a banana. It was then also £3 to park - perhaps a discount on this would be good.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Northampton Half Marathon is back for its the fifth year and is well on the way to establishing itself as the town's showcase running event. As well as more charities and local communities getting involved the 2018 race continues to be the Northamptonshire County Championships for the distance

    The Town Centre start will be in the shadow of The Guildhall and loops out to the race course, the town's home of park running, before returning to the Guildhall and then taking in the Shoemakers Museum and the Theatre before heading out of town for some picturesque countryside running and an inspiring finish on the front lawn at Delapre Abbey making a terrific backdrop for the Northampton Half Marathon.

    With close proximity to junction 15 of the M1 travel to and from the event is straightforward.

    Importantly, we are a company founded in Charity, raising funds for good causes is in our DNA and we now work with over 20 charities helping them realise fundraising through our events.

      Well organised and 2nd time I’ve ran this race. Local to me and good finish with parking etc

      A good half to do as a first race, very well organised and well marshalled. The t shirt and medal was good and plenty of drink stations of water,jelly babies and gels. It would probably be better if bottles as easier I find, but that’s just my opinion.

      A great local half marathon on roads and trails around Northampton. The route has a mixture of both town centre and country lane running, as well a a little throuygh a dull industrial estate, but finishes at Delapre country park in front of the beautiful Delapre Abbey.

      Registration is simple and at 600 entrants its easy to arrive at the start line 20-30 minutes bfefore race start (9:30 am) and have a stress free arrival.

      The route is undulating with one reasonably tough hill coming out of the industrial estate around 7 miles and a few other more gradual ones once you get out into the country lanes.

      Check points are every 3-4 miles (probably not frequent enough if its a hot day) and have water and a few gels. The entire route is very well marshalled. Very nice medal to finish and a few vendors at the race village although the only other 'freebie' is a bottle of water.
