With just under six months to race day, organisers of Plymouth's Half Marathon are encouraging runners to secure their place now, before the event sells out.
Following on from the success of this year’s race and the fantastic response so far, organisers are anticipating more participants than ever for one of Devon's biggest running events.
Plymouth’s Half Marathon will be held on Sunday 17 April, where thousands of runners take to the start line on The Hoe, alongside supporters who come out to show their support along the entire race route.
The 2016 race will once again see thousands of local school pupils complete their own collective half marathon distance as part of the Plymouth’s Half Marathon Schools’ Challenge. During the 2015 event, over 2,600 local schoolchildren helped to raise vital funds for CLIC Sargent in the South West, the cancer charity for children and young people.
Now heading into its 23rd year, Plymouth’s Half Marathon is known for its scenic route and friendly atmosphere. The 13.1 mile journey will start and finish at The Hoe, with a varied course that boasts coastal views, the Barbican harbour and even the stunning National Trust grounds of Saltram Park.
