Halifax Marathon & Half Marathon
The Halifax Marathon is a great way to get your Summer off to an exciting and fulfilling start. Incorporating a Half Marathon, it's already on many "to-do" lists for the year!
The route is certainly a bit different. With a single multi-terrain lap for Half Marathon runners and two for the Marathon, it's a hilly opening few miles before a kinder run in to the finish. It's challenging, it's hilly and it's very much a taste of Halifax, with urban, upland, woodland, industrial heritage and fantastic views all mixed together! And on the well marked course you will be supported by a whole host of people, local running groups and charities etc.
