Starting and finishing in scenic Broadway village, the route follows trails and roads among picturesque villages, woodlands, and, most importantly, hills. The majority of the course is trail or unpaved track. A few minor road sections are included where necessary. The route will be marked, with marshals at a few key points along the way.

The Broadway Marathon / Half are single-stage, looped trail races that take place along public rights of way. The races start and finish in the village of Broadway, Worcestershire. The Half Marathon comprises a single, 13.2 mile circular route, while the 26.5 mile Marathon course is laid out as two loops in a figure-of-eight fashion. There are no road closures for these events, so all participants and supporters must respect road regulations on those sections which are not on trails.

The race starts on Broadway High Street, and the route quickly turns to climb up to Broadway Tower, where you can enjoy excellent views of The Vale of Evesham. It then crosses to Snowshill and Stanway before the marathon splits from the half marathon and heads towards half way in Winchcombe, the walking capital of the Cotswolds. You will pass Sudeley Castle before taking on the final big hill of the route. After spending a few miles on the escarpment, it's back down the hill where you rejoin the half marathon route and are able to enjoy the gently undulating fields from Stanway to Broadway. The half marathon is the top half of the figure-of-eight, so once you reach Stanway, your big hills are all behind you.
