There will be plenty of parking at the venue, and signposts will be up. Please use these car parks and do not park on the local streets. Please arrive in good time and “ready to run” as changing is limited and we cannot provide shower facilities for the numbers involved.

Prizes will be awarded as soon as possible after the races. Trophies to first 3 men and first 3 women runners. Please note we will be using timing chips, so we can give accurate results. This chip is attached to the back of a runners race number.

Please note: the half marathon will start with a rolling road block for the first 2 miles, at the back will be a sweeper vehicle, if runners fall behind this vehicle they’ll be expected to run on pavements where possible.

There is a train track crossing on the Half Marathon route and we are working with Network Rail to best manage this crossing on the day. In the unlikely event that trains need to be diverted through this crossing we have a team of timekeepers in place to manage that situation similar to how it is managed at the Leicester Marathon every year.

The finish line for the Half Marathon is situated on Stowe Fields off Stowe Rd near the city centre, Lichfield WS13 6AQ Staffordshire, West Midlands. This is only just over a mile walk from the start, and where cars are parked. There is a free return coach service from Stowe Field back to King Edwards School.
