Our one lap Half Marathon takes the journey from the Race Start on the High Street, through the Historical & Picturesque 12th Century Kenilworth Castle, out into the beautiful Warwickshire countryside and back, all on closed roads.
To help reduce wastage we’ve separated the t-shirt from the entry price. Our famous long sleeved technical T-shirts can be ordered during race entry for £10 each and will be waiting for you at the finish!
Thanks to Our Sponsors
We would like to thank our sponsors for this event who help us to put on the event and provide you with one of the best half marathon runs in the year.

Car parking is available in several car parks around the town (fee payable), although these may fill quickly.
There is also parking on some roads in the town. Local runners are requested to walk or cycle to the event. Portable toilets will be available next to the public toilets near Abbey End and a couple of portaloos on the course.
Please arrive arrive ready to run and go to your start area in Warwick Road approximately 10 minutes before the start and disperse from the finish area as soon as possible when finished. There are several cafes/bars in Abbey End at the finish.
The course will be entitely closed to traffic (although cyclists seem to ignore this). Only bone conduction ear phones will be allowed in the race. There will be water stations approximately every 2 miles where plastic free cups will be available. Please dispense these in large bags provided just after each water station.
We’ve done something different with the medals in 2023 so we hope you like them! Our famous long sleeved technical tops are also collected from the finish for those that have ordered them.
The route follows a 1 lap course Starting and Finishing at the clock tower in Kenilworth and going through Kenilworth Castle. The route is described as “undulating and interesting”. The 5k follows the same route until mile 2, at this point the 5k splits off to return to the finish.
