2015 Stafford Half Marathon Route

Due to the planned major works that are Wolverhampton Racecoursebeing carried out by Severn Trent Water on parts of the existing Half Marathon route we were faced with the challenge of finding a new course. To start with we looked to take the race out to the West of Stafford town centre , however due to various safety concerns this was proving too much of a challenge!

We are however now delighted to share the proposed new Stafford Half Marathon route with all this years runners so that they can plan their training. Please note this is still provisional until it is accurately measured later this month by an official from the Association of UK Course Measurers. This has been designed to include as much of the existing race course as possible, including the familiar start and finish areas, close to the Market Square in Stafford town centre. Further details including the location of cheering points and welfare stations will be added when we have our measurement certificate.

During the race crowds line the route to cheer on the diverse fields of athletes and help them enjoy the thrill of the race. Local community groups, bands, school children and anyone else are encouraged to get involved and offer support to runners along the course. We will be looking for new cheering points for 2015!

Participants of the 2015 Stafford Half Marathon will also receive a medal along with a technical t-shirt. There are prizes given for open and veteran categories.
