Berkhamsted Rotary Half Marathon 2022
06 March 2022
REGISTRATION IS OPEN
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), as well as an ideal opportunity for those who have taken up running to increase their fitness and enjoyment of sport. Our 2022 event will be the 39th year. The Half Marathon is often used as a serious "marker" for those training for the full marathon distance of the London Marathon and other national events, and we welcome entries from everybody with a passion or enthusiasm for running.
The event is promoted by the Rotary Club of Berkhamsted 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 directly raised more than £250,000 for various charities. The start is at Berkhamsted Cricket Club which is close to Berkhamsted Railway Station (free parking at the station on the day).
Your entry helps Rotary raise funds for many local charities, including two care organisations, the Pepper Foundation and the Hospice of St Francis. We also welcome individuals or teams running to raise funds independently for their own nominated charitable causes. There is great prize money on offer for male and female winners and prizes for 2nd and 3rd placed runners, as well as trophies for the winning mens and womens teams.
We will be awarding everyone who completes the Half Marathon race one of our bespoke medals and T-shirts, so don't miss adding it to your collection. (For Half Marathon finishers, please note that for entries received after January 16 we cannot guarantee the availability of the requested T-shirt size).
Please note, we aim to post race packs (chipped bibs, baggage labels and programme) to all entrants who have registered before 21 February 2022. You can still enter online up to 4 March, but you will need to collect your race pack at Victoria School on Saturday 5 March between 09:00 and 13:30, or on Race Day at the Cricket Pavillion from 08:00 to 09:30.
