Robin Hood Half Marathon

Event TypeHalf Marathon
Date29 September 2024
Registration Fee£41.60
Fundraising Target£150

The Robin Hood Half Marathon is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK.

The course itself is great for both seasoned runners and beginners alike – for beginners, whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time. It is a single lap, 13.1 mile (21.1km) traffic free course. The race starts and finishes in Victoria Embankment and is undulating, so not all flat. There are a couple of inclines at the start of the route, whilst your legs are more up for it (Mile 2, 4 and 6).
