Organiser's Description

The Green Lantern is a circular day time 14mile "half marathon", which follows the Green Circle clockwise around Exeter, through wooded valleys, meadows, bicycle lanes and the banks of the Exe. This year, we’ll also be offering shorter challenges, to the Red Zone (Heavitree Playing Fields - 7 miles) and the Yellow Zone (Marsh Barton Bridge- 9.2 miles). All distances will start together.

This is a lovely mix of trails, meadows, playing fields and flatlands which run alongside the Exe, through the beautiful Ludwell Valley, Hoopern Valley, Redhills and Mincing Lake Country Park.

Turn up, collect your race pack and run. Runners can run in pairs or with their partners or running buddies, in groups or solo.

All entrants will receive chip timing, a zoom 3D overview of the course and a Youtube walkthrough.
Starts and finishes in the piazza in Haven Road opposite the Quay Climbing Centre, Exeter EX2 8AX.The Green Circle around Exeter

It links the industrial heritage of the city with some of its most inspiring natural surroundings in a way that will have you looking at the city in a new light.

Green Lantern ambassador and multiple Olympian Jo Pavey:
“I’m very glad to be supporting this great event, which is raising money for FORCE cancer Counselling at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.”

The Green Lantern uses the Exeter Green Circle route and is a challenging, interesting and well organised event. Recommended.

A really well organised event taking in Exeter's urban trails and letting the runners see another side to the city. The organisers did a great job at adapting to the covid restrictions and keeping us smiling through the rain.
