How to Get There

Parking is available nearby and Leicester Train Station is but a 15 minute walk away.

Parking

There is event parking available at selected University car parks, payable with a donation to LOROS Hospice. Parking details will be provided in your race pack. Numerous NCP car parks are also available nearby. We recommend car sharing as much as possible or using public transport wherever possible to reduce the number of cars coming into the city. Car parks will be well sign-posted. Please note that the Granville Road Car Park outside De Montfort Hall will not be accessible on the day as Granville Road will be closed for the event.

Location

The race arena, start and finish line are all based in Victoria Park, Leicester, LE1 7RU. y.

Course Details

The race arena and both the start and finish are all situated in Victoria Park, just outside the city centre. The route will generally follow that used in 2021, with an initial downhill run for the first mile, running straight through the city centre and heading out on miles 2-6 which are all relatively flat. Following Leicester’s Golden Mile all the way to the top end, we will then reach Watermead Park. From there, we had back on a relatively flat stretch until you get to a short uphill and downhill around mile 8. Re-entering the city following paths along the course of the canal down through Abbey Park, we’ll then head back into the city centre. Miles 9-12 are relatively flat as we run through Highcross and straight down High Street before eventually turning up the idyllic New Walk. This will be our final hill to push up until we finish back at Victoria Park.

    The all-new Run Leicester Festival is a complete re-invention of the original Leicester Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay Events with a renewed focus on creating a fantastic race atmosphere for all. Expect entertainment to keep you going all around a much-loved route and more support than ever before.

  • When will I receive my race pack?

    Almost all runners will have their race packs posted out two weeks before the event. This will contain your bib number (with chip attached), along with all final details for the event. Any late entrants or international runners will need to collect their race packs. Collection is generally available between 10:00am – 2:00pm the day before the race as well as on the morning of the event from the race registration desk on Victoria Park.

  • What happens if I get injured during training or am unable to run on the day?

    If you are unable to run and would like to defer your place until next year then you can do so by sending us an email to [email protected] Deferrals are available up until Wednesday 2nd October and no deferrals will be accepted after this date. The one exception to this being if you test positive for COVID-19 or have to isolate and can provide evidence of this, in which case we will accept a deferral request beyond 2nd October, but only in these circumstances. Alternatively you have also have the option of transferring your place to another runner at any time right up until Sunday 23rd October 2022. You can do this by logging into your Results Base profile online and changing the owner of your place. For more details on how to transfer your place to another runner please see here.
