North London Half Back With Wembley Finish

North London Half
Entries have opened for next year’s second edition of the Vitality North London Half Marathon. Following this year’s successful inaugural staging, the event returns on Sunday 20 March.
For next year, the route for this stadium to stadium half has been reversed to finish inside the iconic Wembley Stadium taking in Saracens’ Allianz Park en route. “We are delighted to bring back the Vitality North London Half Marathon for its second year and believe the spectacular finish in Wembley Stadium will make for a very memorable event,” says Jamie Warren at Achieve Events.
“We had fantastic feedback from runners this year and know that by incorporating Saracens’ Allianz Park at the half-way point with a Wembley Stadium finish, even more people will be inspired to take part in this exciting running event for London. Perfectly timed exactly five weeks before the Virgin Money London Marathon, we anticipate that many full marathon runners in training will also take the opportunity of a pre-marathon training run on the streets of London. After the success of the inaugural race this year, we are expecting a sell-out for 2016, so would encourage runners to take advantage of the limited £5 off early bird offer to secure their place and avoid disappointment.”
For 2016, all runners will receive a free finishers technical t-shirt from race partner, Brooks, a fantastic medal, premium goody bag and post-race massage on race day. To grab an early bird discount at £35 for affiliated runners and £37 for unaffiliated entry, visit the event website.
