ROUTE: Please note, there will be 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 may have 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
