Enthusiastic runners in action at Wokingham Half

Wokingham Half Marathon

Fast and flat Wokingham Half Marathon is the top early year race that offers outstanding value for money.

This is a classic Berkshire event that has been producing super fast times since 1984. Traditionally one of the south of England's first 13.1 mile races of the year, Wokingham Half Marathon is scheduled for Sunday 24 February in 2019.

Starting and finishing at Cantley Park the race runs on fast, flat rural roads and each year produces outstanding performances with course records of 1.11.09 (Liz Yelling) and 1.03.14 (Phil Wicks).

Wokingham Half Marathon gets the 2019 Berkshire Road Running Championships off to a flying start. Run on closed roads under UK Athletics rules, the route is helpful to those looking to complete their first half marathon and to established club runners seeking a new PB.

Wokingham Half also hosts a very competitive affiliated club team competition with four to score in both women’s and men’s categories.

A course record prize of £500 is available for both Men and Women. Good for age free places and cash prizes for winners. It’s the ideal pre London Marathon Half. Pace runners from 1.20 in five minute intervals. Free post race refreshment tent and only £26/£28 to enter.
