Entries for 2016 are now open!
Here are a few highlights we had put together from 2015's event!
With races for all ages and abilities, the St Albans Half Marathon is the perfect event for anyone looking for a new challenge, to beat their personal best, or a great way to get the whole family active. We offer a Half Marathon, Walking Half Marathon, Wheelchair Half Marathon, 5k Race and 1.5 Mile Children’s Fun Run, all of which aim to raise vital funds for local charities.
Last year over 6600 athletes took to the streets of St Albans and Verulamium Park, and helped to raise a massive £25,000 for local charities. The event saw groups from the whole community coming together to help marshal, hand out water, encourage runners and, of course, give out ice lollies at the finish line!
The success of last year's event was recognised as we were awarded with the UK Active Flame Award 2015 - a prestigious national award which is designed to celebrate organisations shaping the future of physical activity in the UK. We are very proud to have received this award, and would like to thank everyone who supported us by voting.
We are now “running” into our 35th year and are continuing to make the event bigger and better. This year we are increasing entry limits, making a wider range of merchandise available, and introducing a new “Corporate Challenge”. We hope to raise even more money than last year to enable us to continue to support local charities, schools and activity groups.
Keep an eye out for our social media pages - not only will you be able to keep up with the progress of the event, but we will also be posting competitions in the lead up to the event.
