Run in the sun at Warwick Racecourse

Warwick Half looking to be a galloping success

This event will be held on a closed road course.

Runners of all ages and abilities will be quick out of the gates at the Warwick Half Marathon (Sunday 6 March) as they head off from the racecourse on a scenic route that, best of all, is traffic-free. They can expect a steeplechase rather than a flat race however.

A spring offering from The Race Organiser, it is ideal for runners building up to a marathon whilst also being an enjoyable race in its own right. The route is suitable for wheelchair athletes and youngsters are catered for as well with a Junior Race for entrants age 6 upwards. Children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult. 

The Wheelchair Half Marathon starts at 8.55am followed by the Half Marathon at 9am then the Junior Race at 9.30am. Chip timed, it continues on quiet country roads that undulate through the countryside, providing stunning views throughout before finishing back in front of the grandstand at the racecourse. A team of pacers will be on hand to help runners achieve their target times. 

Those at the sharp end of the field will be competing for the top three places and prizes: likewise in the V40, V50, V60 and V70 age groups with prizes for the winning male and female in each. There should be some good hard racing for these. Every finisher will receive a medal.   

The Race Organiser is delighted to be hosting this half marathon saying: "We are proud to bring back this much loved local race, and are working closely with local groups who helped deliver it in the past to make sure the 2022 event is the best yet. Keep an eye on our socials."
