Rugby Half Marathon & Fun Run
Through the disused Great Central railway and the closed town and country roads of Britain's railway centre, this is the half marathon you can't afford to miss. Starting at Hart field, you'll quickly find yourself out on to clear country roads and flying round to return to the town centre on 'a linear nature reserve' - the old railway line that is now a recognised wildlife hotspot. With a fun 1k run for the family too, this is your perfect end-of-half-term day out before all the Hallowe'en and fireworks fun.
