Runners in the Northampton Half Marathon

Last chance to enter the Northampton Half Marathon

A surge of entries has led to the extended deadline.

Runners have until midnight Monday (20 September) to enter the Northampton Half Marathon and Satra Size 6. If you were debating whether to sign up, this is the time to make a decision and be part of a well organised event from Go Beyond Challenge.. 

The Northampton Half Marathon, Northampton Half Marathon Relay and Satra Size 6 is less than a week away (Sunday 26 September). It is held on a scenic course that has a bit of everything – town and country, flat sections and hills – and is well marked and marshalled. Water is provided at four aid stations.

The Half Marathon acts as a showcase for Northampton and its historical past, with notable features that include the Charles Rennie Macintosh House, art deco Old Savoy, Racecourse Park, the 900-year old Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Edward Lutyens War Memorial. It starts at the Grade II listed Guildhall and finishes in the grounds of Delapre Abbey.  

This town is also famous for its shoe industry and the Satra Size 6 (6.9 miles) is a tribute to that. It follows the half marathon route apart from the loop through Great Houghton and ‘pink hill’ but still passes famous landmarks such as the Charles Rennie Macintosh House and a dash for the line in front of Delapre Abbey.  

Last but not least is the Half Marathon Relay for teams of three people who complete 3.7 miles, 7.8 miles and 1.6 miles on an accurately measured course. For more details about logistics etc, visit the Go Beyond Challenge website – Northampton Half Marathon Relay page. 

There are prizes for the first, second and third male and female (and 1st, 2nd, 3rd teams in the relay). Every finisher receives a medal and t-shirt. 

Enter the Northampton Half Marathon, Relay or Satra Size 6 via the Go Beyond Challenge website. 

Note: Important information regarding the collection of race packs can be found on the Northampton Half Marathon Facebook page.
