The South Of England's Top Race Listing

Race action

Race action is heating up as autumn comes knocking! Both Saturday & Sunday are full of events across the south of the country & with a weather forecast that doesn't mention rain, it looks like it's going to be a great weekend of racing. 

Catching our eye is Sunday's Truro Half Marathon, a hard & hilly multi terrain race with several taxing hills & some rough underfoot conditions. A challenge, but a beautiful one!

Another Sunday half marathon, but a different experience altogether, the Harrow Half course features historic & well-known landmarks, stunning views, parks & countryside. There will also be the Sir Roger Bannister Family Mile in the grounds of Harrow School.

Check out the results & upcoming events on our race listing page here.

Don't forget you can register as an organiser here & add your race details to our listings.
