EVENT - The Lichfield Half-Marathon


Existing registrations will be automatically transferred to this new date.

When we postponed the Four Oaks Financial Services Lichfield Half Marathon from its original date in 2020 we were sure that we would be able to deliver a high-quality and popular event at a new later date.

Unfortunately due to reasons related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and following consultations with local authorities and our other event partners, we regret to advise that the Four Oaks Financial Services Lichfield Half Marathon will not take place on May 9th 2021, and has now been rescheduled to take place on Sunday 17th October 2021 10.30 am start. Anyone previously registered for the original date will automatically see that registration transferred to the new date.

While we are prevented from holding the event in May 2021 all of us here at KP Events are confident that we can provide everybody with an exceptional experience in October 2021. These truly are unprecedented times, and we know so many of you are simply itching to take part in safe organised running events in the near future, so please stay tuned to our social media platforms and website for more information. For further information contact


Event starts: 2 years, 9 months, 6 days, 15 hours, 7 minutes, 59 seconds ago.


Four Oaks Financial Services

We are delighted to announce that we have a new sponsor for this event. Four Oaks Financial Services is a well-respected firm of Financial Advisers based in Lichfield and will be the event sponsors for 2021 and 2022.

You can enter at a discounted price of £10 if you opt to run for either of the two good causes Four Oaks Financial Services is supporting. 

The two good causes are Buddy Bag Foundation, which is a charity that helps children that find themselves in women’s refuges after fleeing from domestic abuse.  And, the other good cause is to raise money to buy an ECG Heart Rate Monitor for Avon 3 Ward at Worcester Royal Infirmary.  This follows the death of George, father-in-law of Four Oaks Financial Services’ Managing Director, Martin Ward.

George had received amazing care at the Worcester Royal Infirmary for 6 weeks, but on the day he died, he needed an ECG machine to check his heart.  There are only 3 in the entire hospital and it took over an hour for the machine to arrive.  He died later that day from heart failure. Members of the Ward family will be running for the ECG machine and a number of the Four Oaks staff raising money for Buddy Bag Foundation.

You can opt to run for either of these good causes on our on-line entry system. Four Oaks Financial Services has been providing financial advice to people in Lichfield and across the region for many years.  They have a unique holistic approach to financial planning click here to find out more.

The start area for the Half Marathon: King Edwards VI School Lichfield, Upper St John Street, Lichfield, Staffordshire.

Postcode for Sat Nav: WS14 9EE

ROUTE: Please note, this year’s route will start with a rolling roadblock for the first 2 miles. At the back will be a sweeper vehicle, if you fall behind this vehicle, then please get on the pavement for your own safety. The rest of the route has partial road closures, but please take responsibility for your own safety and run in single file where possible.


You will find plenty of parking at King Edwards VI, but please arrive in plenty of time as we expect large numbers of vehicles and long queues. Please use these car parks and do NOT park on the local streets. Please come ‘ready to run’ as changing is limited, and we cannot provide shower facilities for the numbers involved.


The finish line for the Half Marathon is situated on Stowe Fields off Stowe Rd, near the city centre, Lichfield WS13 6AQ. This is only just over a mile walk from the start, and where your car is parked. An easy walk back for those aching legs, but we also have a free return coach service. Look out for signs.


Prizes will be awarded as soon as possible after the races. First 3 men and first 3 women only this year. Goody bags and memento for everybody.


Results will be published on the day or soon afterwards, and will also be available on our website
