Kenilworth Half Marathon

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.

The Route

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.
