We're delighted to announce that our award winning Remembrance Day Marathon & Half Marathon event will be back for another very special edition in 2021. Now in its 5th year, we hope you'll consider joining us for a very special run indeed and yet again, we've added a Half Marathon specific distance too, so that even more of you can get your hands on our famous 1 inch thick, heavy metal medal (yes you read that right). The 2021 design is our best yet!
Please note the entry fee is the same for both distances, and you'll be asked to select marathon or half marathon as part of the entry process. The epic medal and awesome support are the same for everyone!
This event is literally built around a unique 'race freeze' at 11.00am, where at the sound of the horn blast all runners stop to observe a 2 minute silence, resuming their race at exactly 11.02am when we should 3 blasts of the horns. Even if you're a fast half marathon runner and plan to have finished before 11am, why not stay around to pay your respects and absorb the unique atmosphere at 11.00am.
An important note: This is not an event with a 2 minute silence put in it - this is a 2 minute silence with an entire marathon & half marathon event built around it. It is the very heart and soul of this event and the reason it exists. It is a very moving, spine tingling experience to be part of and in past years members of the public, walkers, cyclists and even rowers on the river have put their oars up and joined in.
We provide a physical running service and by entering our events you are purchasing an actual run, either by attending our events or by running the event virtually yourself. All participants in our events, both attended and virtual, will receive a free giveaway medal / memento from your run.
