COVID-19 INFORMATION

We are incredibly excited for 2021 and being able to deliver our events again. However, we are also committed to ensuring that all runners, volunteers, staff and supporters are safe, and the event is delivered in line with all guidance and in line with all public health advice.

The current headline advice from Sports England is the following:

Organised outdoor sports and organised sports participation events such as organised group walks, and races can take place outdoors but must follow Covid-secure guidance.

We will be implementing a number of measures at our 2021 events; these will evolve and develop as the events approach and will be constantly reviewed alongside the government guidance.

EVENT VILLAGE

All marshals and staff within the event and around the course will be issued with PPE and wear gloves and a mask for the duration of the event.

Race packs will be posted out ahead of the event and event communications will be sent via email in the lead up.

There will be limited baggage drop facilities within the event village, and all participants are asked to please limit the number of belongings they bring to the event to reduce contact between runners and staff.

There will be multiple hygiene stations around the event with hand sanitiser for all runners.

You will see clear signage around the event village, please follow all signage and instructions from the marshals before, during and after the race. There may also be one-way systems put in place.

START LINE

The race will start in waves based on your estimated finish time, with the faster runners at the start and slower near the back to avoid any congestion and the need to overtake on course.

COURSE RULES

While on the run route please stay left, if you need to pass another participant please pass on the right and only when you can maintain a safe 1m distance. We ask that runners are respectful of their fellow participants and event staff and do not spit or blow their nose on the course. When you reach the finish please do not stop at the line, there will be signs and staff to help point you in the right direction.

WATER

We want to make the event environmentally sustainable, we also want to make sure it is safe. We will have self-serve water stations on the route which will be re-stocked by event staff in PPE. There will also be water available at the finish.

PPE

Face coverings are mandatory at the event site and to be worn at all times prior to the event start, though runners will not be expected to run in a face covering. We kindly ask that you come ready with your own face covering.

MEDICAL

The event will have enhanced medical cover to cater for the most up to date guidance for mass participation events in outdoor spaces. Further details will follow closer to race day.

SPECTATORS

Our spectator policy will be shared closer to race day however sadly we expect that we may need to ask you to limit the number of supporters you bring with you on the day and that they will not be able to wait at the finish line to watch you cross it.

TRACK AND TRACE

Via your run number timing chip, we will know that you are at the event. Now more than ever it essential that you do not swap numbers or use a number with someone else’s name so that we can efficiently track and trace should we need to.

AFTER THE RACE

Do not stop within the finish barriers. Please continue past the finish until you pass the medals and are in an open space.

We ask that once you have collected your medal and water to leave the event village as soon as possible to avoid groups congregating within the event village.

If you are interested in reading the current advice issued by Sport England it is available here and Run Britain’s guidance can be found here.

You will receive detailed information prior to race day with respect to the above in case of changing guidance or recommendations.

Organiser's Description

Run Cheltenham is set in the heart of this beautiful regency town and has been designed to show off its splendour and Cotswold charm. Now moving into its seventh year, this popular half marathon has grown in size and is now hosted at the famous Cheltenham Racecourse.

The route enjoys the glorious views of the surrounding Cotswolds and takes you through iconic locations such as Montpellier and Lansdown, before joining the old Honeybourne Line towards Pittville and back into the Racecourse for an amazing grandstand finish. 

Our 10km route follows the first and final 3 miles of the half marathon.

The Community Mile takes place alongside the half marathon and 10km. The-mile-long fun run is designed to encourage first time runners, families, friends, colleagues and teams to come together and challenge themselves to get active for a fitter, healthier life. 

*Participants falling behind the pace required to finish by 12:30 will be asked to move to the pavement.

Well organised race and nice route down into cheltenham and back to the racecourse. The last mile and a half are super tough round the racecourse and the head wind didn’t help
