Stafford Half Marathon

SHM Updated banner

Sunday 20 March 2016 - 10am

Please note that over three quarters of places have now been sold for this event and entry will close when all places have been allocated. We forecast this will be earlier than in previous years.

The 2016 Stafford Half Marathon will start in Stafford Street (town centre) at 10am. The route will head off from the town centre on traffic-controlled roads, incorporating two steady climbs before returning to the Market Square via Victoria Park.

Crowds line the route to cheer on the diverse field 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 the runners along the course.  

Participants of the 2016 Half Marathon will also receive a medal along with a technical t-shirt.  There are also prizes given for open and veteran categories.
