Let's Hear It For The Halfs

Paris Half Marathon

The Paris Half Marathon (6 March) Paris Half Marathon usually attracts 40,000 entrants and is expected to start in the vicinity of the Place de la Bastille. The scenic route runs beside the great River Seine, through Bois de Vincennes Park, and back alongside the Seine to finish in the heart of the city on Rue de Lyon. This is a lively and exciting half marathon and a great way to see the city, achieve a PB or use the experience as a stepping stone to a later marathon.

NYC Half Marathon

The United Airlines NYC Half (20 March) takes runners on a wonderful journey through different boroughs of the Big Apple. Starting in Brooklyn near Prospect Park runners head across the East River via the Manhattan Bridge. Once in Manhattan, runners will race along the Lower East Side, up to Midtown, and through Times Square before finishing in Central Park. The NYC Half sells out every year, with Destination Sport Experiences you can buy entry without the need to enter the lottery! In 2022, with St Patrick's day on Thursday before the NYC Half Weekend, this is a great opportunity to combine two iconic New York experiences.

Berlin Half Marathon

Do you want to experience a very special sightseeing tour through Berlin? Then get to the starting line of one of the biggest half marathons in the world and experience an unforgettable spring fever by running at the Berlin Half Marathon (3 April). Cheering crowds, exhaustion, joy and a glittering medal are all waiting for you here. Berlin is a city of culture and architecture. Full of history, this iconic city makes for the perfect half marathon getaway. In short, don't miss this exhilarating season opener and get a little flavour of the event here:

Marathons Are What Memories Are Made Of

Paris Marathon

Paris Marathon takes centre stage on 3 April, with up to 60,000 participants and a generous 5:40 cut off time, which means that around a third of all runners are first-time marathoners. The fabulous Avenue des Champs-Élysées is the start location, right in front of the Arc de Triomphe! The course passes practically every major sightseeing highlight, including Chateau de Vincennes, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. In a nutshell Paris in the spring together with one of the biggest sightseeing marathons in the World is an incredible experience you won’t forget.

Brighton Marathon

If you’re looking for a unique experience to keep you motivated in the early part of the year then look no further than Brighton Marathon (10 April). Starting at Preston Park, the route snakes its way through the city centre, along the April-fresh sea front, finishing at the iconic Madeira Drive, where the cheering crowds will greet you. Celebrate your achievements with friends - old and new at the unique Beach Village where you will find a range of street food trucks and stands, bars serving alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks and big screen coverage.

Edinburgh Marathon

Established in 2003, Edinburgh Marathon Festival (29 May) is Scotland's largest mass participation running event, with over 35,000 runners and 100,000 spectators enjoying nine different race distances over two days. One of Edinburgh Marathon Festival’s great strengths is in its broad appeal. With various events across the weekend aimed at runners of all ages and abilities, there is something for everyone. If it's flat and fast you are after, then Edinburgh Marathon is the race for you, it is certainly an event worth considering whether it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a PB!
