We have two prizes awarded to the primary schools with the highest or the most improved number of entries in the 1.5 mile Fun Run. Our primary school challenge is a great way to encourage local school children to get involved. Children 12 and under are eligible to take part, by simply entering their primary school during registration.  You can read more here.


The St Albans Half Marathon is a charitable event. Proceeds for registration fees, for all events, will go to our supported charities which are chosen by the community.  You are welcome to get sponsorship for your event, which can go towards our chosen charity or to a charity of your choice.  Simply click on the "Start Fundraising" button on the right to get started!


Late Entry fee applies from 14th May 2018 until registrations close on 5th June 2018. The cost of this will be £9 entry fee per person.

Please Note: We reserve the right to refuse or cancel an application/entry. We may also alter aspects of one or all of our events including routes, starts and finishes and water points.


You have the right to cancel your place in any one of our events and receive a full refund (excluding admin fee) if your cancellation is notified in writing to the event team within 7 days of your entry date. After this period we regret that we cannot refund any entry fees, whether due to injury, illness, lack of training or a last minute change of plan.

Participants are also able to transfer to a different race or transfer their registration to another participant through the online registration system if they can no longer attend. This option is only available until 15th April 2018. Transfers between categories are free of charge but transfer to a new participant has an additional charge of £2. If a participant is transferring to a race with a cheaper entry fee the price difference is non-refundable. After 15th April transfer is only available by telephone with the events team, this is available until 7th May.

If a participant is unable to attend the event and doesn’t wish to transfer their place, they can contact St Albans Half Marathon via email with their name and date of birth to request a deferral discount code. This code will entitle them to 50% off the equivalent race in 2019’s event registration and will be valid for one use until 31st December 2018.

In the unfortunate circumstance of the event being cancelled through circumstance beyond the control of the race organisers, I understand, and accept, the rules and terms of the entry including that there will be no refund of race entries and purchases.
