Remembrance Day Marathon & Half Marathon

We're delighted to announce that our award winning Remembrance Day Marathon & Half Marathon event will be back again in 2024. Now in its 8th 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 Remembrance Day medals. The 2024 design is our best yet!

Please note the entry fee is the same for both distances, and you'll be asked to marathon or half marathon as part of the entry process. The epic medal and awesome support are the same for everyone.

In 2024, we're holding our annual Remembrance Day Marathon & Half Marathon on Sunday 10th November.

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.

The medal? 
Well, let's just say these with be EPIC!

This event has always sold out in advance in previous years so please enter early. Places will be strictly limited.

Off road trail, the terrain is riverside towpath - 4 out and back laps equal the full marathon distance and 2 out and back laps make up a half marathon distance. The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.

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.
