EVENT SUMMARY

Held under UK Athletics Rules, the Retford Half Marathon attracts approximately 1200 entrants each year and is a key fixture for seasoned runners from across Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, as well as for others who are taking part in their first half-marathon. Many runners also use it as a warm up to the London Marathon held in April.

The 2019 event, will once again start and finish at the Retford Oaks Academy on Babworth Road in Retford which offers excellent facilities for runners and their supporters. Following the success of the 2016 event which sold out in January, for the 2017 and 2018 events we increased the race limit to 1,200 and we we have now increased this to 1,300 for the 2019 event. The event will once again see “chip timing” used.

The Family fun run (The Dave Maiden Family Fun Run),  is approximately 2km.  There is no minimum age but under 10's must be accompanied by an adult.  Prizes for the first three home (under 7 years of age) and medals for all entrants.  Entry fee for the fun run is £3.
