We always hold the event 2 weeks before the London Marathon, so the 2019 races will be on Sunday 14th April. If you are entering the London Marathon, this is a good test for you, with plenty of time to recover.
Both races start and finish at Hose Village Hall, with easy access and parking. Both the races go along quiet rural roads, through attractive, gently undulating countryside, which has been proven over the past 37 years to give many personal best times. We get lots of local helpers, so it is a friendly event, which first-time runners will enjoy, as well as welcoming back our many regular visitors. The 7km Road Race starts after the Half Marathon, so that the runners can watch the exciting start of the Half Marathon and are back at the finish in time to watch the winners arrive.
Unfortunately the hall is likely to be out of action because of a fire but your followers will be able to stay under cover around the start during the race and we will provide a range of snacks, or they can watch the race along the course.
The races will be run according to the England Athletics rules & Run Britain have issued a Race Licence. There will be First Aid and water points around the course. Your personal time will be measured both from the starting gun and as you cross the start-line, so you get an accurate & reliable time.
