Stafford Half Marathon

HalfMarathonWebTopper

Sunday 22 March 2015 - 10am

Over three quarters of places have now been taken. When the limit of 3,000 entrants is reached no additional places will become available.

Due to planned major works by Severn Trent Water on parts of the Half Marathon route, we are looking at a new course for the 2015 Stafford Half Marathon (details to be confirmed).

This route will set off from Market Square at 10am and the route will head off from the town centre into Stafford's countryside, on traffic-controlled roads going through Doxey, Seighford,Ranton and Derrington. The final stages of the route will return to Market Square past historical Stafford Castle, through the iconic Victoria Park.

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.
