Hadrian's Wall Half Marathon

The course is suitable for all types of runners looking for something different to running a road half marathon.
If you are venturing away from the road for the first time, this is different. It's definitely not a road race. If you are a fell runner, then its definitely not a fell race. The best description is a multi-terrain trail race. It's a good introduction to a run on the wild side, marshalled and route marked with water stations at 5K intervals.
Road section, 4.6 miles
Grass section, 3.5 miles, not as easy or smooth as tarmac but still very runnable. (provided the sheep have kept up with their course maintenance duties).
Forest section, 5 miles, well made surface with some loose gravel, but not as much as you might expect.
Trail shoes are recommended, or road shoes with good grip.

The feedback from last year: "loved the course, felt like 3 races in one, a road race, a trail race, followed by a fell race"
As you might of guessed it's not a PB course, check the results out. If you can do this one, you can do the rest.

The course records are currently held by:
Conrad Franks - 1hr 21m 38s
Louise Hayes - 1hr 36m 08s
