Swindon Half Marathon
The original Swindon Half Marathon ran its last race in 2015. Swindon has a huge and vibrant running community, so we’re bringing back the race, but in a new format, which we feel is much more fitting to the runners of not just Swindon, but those from afar. Swindon is a large town, with easy routes to surrounding areas, and deserves a race on a much bigger scale than we’ve had in previous years.
Starting and finishing in the town centre, the new course is largely very flat, and brings runners through the various highlights of the town, including the Magic Roundabout, the County Ground, the Oasis, the Railways, the McArther Glenn Outlet Village, and the old town, then downhill into the town centre and a finish under the big screen of Wharf Green. Also wheelchair race. (Date tbc)
