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.

With a fun 1k run for the family too, this is your perfect end-of-half-term day out before all the Hallowe'en and fireworks fun.

  • Exclusive commemorative 2019 medal
  • Finisher's technical running t-shirt
  • Chip-timed results available instantly after you finish
  • Goody bags, race village refreshments and spectator-friendly course

Starting at Hart field, you'll quickly find yourself out on to clear country roads and flying round to return to the town centre on 'a linear nature reserve' - the old railway line that is now a recognised wildlife hotspot.

Of course, all this also means a new, exclusive medal and course records in each male and female category up for grabs.

Be there from year one to help this event become a major fixture in the race calendar - we'd love to see you there.
