Coventry Festival of Running

The Coventry Festival of Running returns for 2020!

As Coventry is set to be the City of Culture for 2021, it couldn't be a better year to get involved and get running! The running course will take you throughout Coventry, including some of the best landmarks and heritage sites the city has to offer. If you love a challenge or sport, this is something you need to take part in. 

Taking place throughout Coventry, runners can enter into 4 different events:

Coventry Half Marathon:

Join more than 4000 runners to take in historic city landmarks and leafy country lanes on the Coventry Half Marathon.

Coventry 5K:

Whether you're regular ParkRunner or taking on your first Couch to 5k, hit the streets of Coventry to get moving and raise money for a great cause.

Coventry Wheelchair 2.5K:

Whether you're budding future or returning paralympian or maybe its your first wheelchair race?  Hit the streets of Coventry to get moving and raise money for a great cause.

Chilsren's Mile (March 22nd)

Entries will take place through Coventry and local Warwickshire schools, so if your child would like to get involved, please contact them on more information.


An amazing chance to raise money for charity!

Challenge yourself and raise money for a great cause of your choice. Last year runners ran for more than 50 charities - local, national, and international - raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity.

Runners are welcome to run for the charity of their choice, or for a free entry run with one of our official partner charities.
