The Half Marathon
The Berkhamsted Half Marathon, which tracks through very attractive Chilterns countryside, is an ideally timed event for runners coming back to competitive running after winter training (or hibernation!) It is frequently used as a serious "marker" for those training for the full marathon distance of the London Marathon and elsewhere.
The event is promoted by the Rotary Club of Berkhamsted Bulbourne who aim to organise a successful and challenging half-marathon event together with an interesting 5 mile fun run. Over the years this Rotary event has raised more than £250,000 for various charities. The Rotary Half Marathon and 5 Mile Run are routed through the beautiful Chiltern countryside. The start is at Berkhamsted Cricket Club which is close to Berkhamsted Station and parking at the station is free for the day.
Your entry helps Rotary raise funds for two local care organisations, the Pepper Foundation and the Hospice of St Francis together with many other local charities. There's great prize money on offer as well as trophies with £100 for both the male and female winners and prizes for 2nd and 3rd placed runners as well as trophies for the winning men's and women's teams.
We'll be awarding everyone who completes the race one of our bespoke medals and t-shirts celebrating the history of Berkhamsted, so don't miss adding it to your collection.
the 2017 Event saw a great turnout where the Men's Half Marathon was won by Paul Adams in a time of 1:15:09 and the Ladies race by Emma Wilson in 1:21:26
