Runners in the Peterborough Marathon

Uplifting news as Peterborough Marathon opens for entries

Picturesque course one of several features of this well organised race

Postponed due to Covid-19, the Enervit Peterborough Marathon is set to go ahead on Sunday 23 May 2021 and entries have opened for this popular race that gets rave reviews. It is described as an event for runners by runners...

The government’s road map for leaving lockdown was music to the ears for Sublime Racing who were delighted to announce their event would be taking place after all. Considered a first class affair where attention to detail is second to none, this approach has expanded to include Covid-19 measures that safeguard runners whilst still delivering an enjoyable experience. Duty of care is of prime importance. 

What hasn’t changed is the course which has plenty of variety as it winds its way around this Cathedral city. The Cathedral forms a backdrop as the route continues along the embankment, passing through Nene Park and along the Green Wheel cycle path adjacent to the River Nene.

Runners help themselves to water and gels at the aid stations as part of the safety measures and social distancing still applies with a requirement to keep two metres apart and overtake only when able to and without putting the other person at risk. This is subject to change. 

There are cash prizes and trophies for the top three men and women: trophies for age category winners and medals plus T-shirts for all finishers and spot prizes that will be awarded at the post-race presentation. Free race photos and live mobile results are also included. 

This is a good spring marathon for those attempting the distance for the first time as well as the seasoned competitor and an ideal form of post-Covid recovery.
