WESTON SUPER HALF
The Weston Super Half will set off from Marine Parade at the entrance to The Grand Pier.
It will take in the glorious sites of Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding picturesque Somerset villages and countryside in this single lap, closed road, fast half marathon event.
And the pièce de résistance, a totally unique opportunity to finish quarter of a mile out to sea on Weston's Grand Pier.
The Community Mile takes place alongside the half marathon. The-mile-long fun run is designed to encourage first time runners, families, friends, colleagues and teams to come together and challenge themselves to get active for a fitter, healthier life.
Although we cannot predict where we will be as a nation by October, we have put well thought out, flexible and responsive measures in place to ensure that the Weston Super Half 2021 is a COVID-secure event, as other events have already started to show is possible. Read more here. We will do everything we can to ensure that the event will go ahead, but if COVID-19 stops this from happening we will be offering refunds or transfers to all runners.
