Race Listing


It’s half time this weekend! No, it’s not a rugby reference, there’s a flurry of 13.1-mile races to look forward to… The Folkestone Rotary Half Marathon celebrates its 10th anniversary on Sunday, with souvenir T-shirts to mark the occasion. The Forest of Dean Half Marathon returns with a new course. The route features some interesting hill challenges, and offers a chance to experience the forest with its late-summer leaf canopy. The oldest half of the bunch is Windsor Half Marathon which turns the rather biblical age of 33. Check out race results and upcoming events on our race listing page.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up as a race organiser.

Good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
