Organiser's Description


The Welwyn Half Marathon starts and finishes on the 400m athletics track at Gosling Sports Park. You will be directed out of the stadium, towards the Cole Green Way – a disused railway line which is now the perfect track to run along. After this traffic free section you will complete a short loop to bring you back onto the Cole Green Way again. You then complete the first section in reverse and finish with a track finish at Gosling Sports Park.

Taking place at the end of February this is also a perfect preparation race for anyone taking part in a Spring marathon.

This race will be operating a 3 hour cut off time, after which there will not be marshals and course signage available.

We are pleased to be able to give you the opportunity to complete a half marathon distance in a small scale, friendly environment. The race will be held under a full UK Athletics race license and be officially chip-timed by our professional timing partner, Event Chip Timing.

The race will start from 09:00am in a rolling-start format with athletes aiming for the fastest predicted times and the race win, leading the way. This format will avoid any bottlenecks from forming as you leave the stadium.

There will also be the Welwyn Micro Marathon around the Gosling 400m athletics track, for kids which will be free! This always creates a fantastic atmosphere before the start of the main event.

the course

For the sake of clarity, the image below is split into two sections, due to the shape of the course. The bottom image joins onto the right hand side of the top image.

The course has traffic free sections, however any sections which are not, will be well marshalled, so you can be assured that the course is fast.

Beautiful running route planned out, staff are so friendly and really push you to keep you going throughout the race. Would definitely recommend. Completed my first half marathon on Sunday with them and I’m really proud of my finish time thanks to staff keeping me motivated!

The race was very well organised but the course itself was a bit of a disappointment. The muddy patches although notified in advance meant that my shoes had little or no purchase. Also a lot of the course is on single file pavements which limits overtaking as well as being uneven. Lastly it’s not particularly pretty - the Hertfordshire half or St Albans ones are better.
