Welwyn Half Marathon (September)
The Welwyn Half Marathon starts and finishes on the 400m athletics track at Gosling Sports Park - a great spectator location - and runs along the Cole Green Way, a disused railway line which is now the perfect running track. The route also incorporates pavements, closed roads and cycle paths.
There will also be the Welwyn Micro Marathon around the track for kids, which will be free! This always creates a fantastic atmosphere before the start of the main event.
Our official charity for this event is the Isabel Hospice, which provides free care for patients and their families living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses in eastern Hertfordshire.
