Organiser's Description

JOIN US FOR THE ANNUAL WATFORD HALF MARATHON ON SUNDAY 5TH FEBRUARY 2023 & THE FAMILY FUN RUN!
HALF MARATHON

This UK Athletics Gold Graded event has strong history within the running community and has been taking place for over 40 years.

Those looking for a challenge can take on this scenic, undulating Half Marathon which takes you on a challenging but rewarding route through the country lanes of Watford.

Historically, this event has featured the Hertfordshire Half Marathon Championships. To be eligible, you must have been born in Hertfordshire or been a resident for 9 months. If this event is chosen again for the Championships, you must state your eligibility during registration process.

With 4.4 out of 5 Stars on RACECHECK we’re sure you will love it as much as we do!

In an effort to make the event more sustainable we will not be offering finisher t shirts this year, instead we will be paying to plant one tree for every £100 we take in entry fees #TREESNOTTEES

You have the option of purchasing an event T-Shirt in advance as a memento of the day for just £10!

The Half Marathon is in support of Peace Hospice Care, Watford

FAMILY FUN RUN
