On the Day


The Start Line is on Jordan Well, competitors will gather on Gosford Street. There will be timing pens for the Half Marathon, ensure you're in the correct pen so you're amongst runners of a similar pace.

The Race Village is in and around TheHub, Jordan Well, Cox Street, CV1 5QT.

Baggage Drop is in Square One within TheHub. It will be signposted from the Race Village. It is approximately a five minute walk from the Start Line. Ensure you've attached the Baggage Label from your Race Number.

The Race Village also contains toilets, an info point, food and drink, first aid, and massages.

The Finish Line is on Priory Street, by the Cathedral. Once you've crossed the line you will collect your t-shirt and medal and move on into the Race Village.
