runABC is in the process of upgrading and improving its online service so you might encounter the odd glitch over the next week or so but rest assured we’re working on them and the new site will be a fantastic resource for our running community.

The English Half Marathon

Warrington, Cheshire, 14-16 September 2018

Its celebration time in Warrington with the 10th English Half Marathon being held on the 14-16 September; once again, we are looking forward to welcoming 7500 plus runners over race weekend.

The action gets off to a flying start with the exciting 5K race on the Friday evening followed by the main event, our Half Marathon, 10K and Wire FM Mile taking place on the Sunday – all finishing through the iconic Warrington Town Hall Golden Gates. All runners receive a bespoke medal with additional medals on offer to anyone who is up to the challenge of completing two or even three race distances.

This year sees the event expand with the Event Village developing more of a ‘festival’ feel and the staging of our very first Active Lifestyle EXPO. The Active Lifestyle EXPO is being held in partnership with Golden Square Warrington and will take place on Friday 14 & Saturday 15 September in their fantastic event space – the Old Market Square. The EXPO is aimed at anyone interested in improving their health and fitness and is in the ideal location to attract runners and their families, as well as shoppers and visitors to the town.
