Hart Field, Lower Hillmorton Road, RUGBY. CV21 3TR
Through the disused Great Central railway and the closed town and country roads of Britain's railway centre, this is the half marathon you can't afford to miss.
Starting at Hart Field, you'll quickly find yourself out on clear country roads and flying around to return to the town centre on 'a linear nature reserve' - the old railway line that is now a recognised wildlife hotspot.
With a unique medal, post-event goodies and some local support, the Rugby Half is becoming a major fixture in the local calendar - don’t miss out!
