The Run Leicester Half Marathon route starts and finishes in Victoria Park and runs through the streets of the city centre and surrounding parks. The race arena and both the start and finish are all situated in Victoria Park, just outside the city centre. After an initial downhill run for the first mile, the race runs straight through the city centre and head out on miles 2 to 6 which are all quite flat and follow Leicester’s Golden Mile all the way to the top end of Watermead Park. From there the route heads back through the park, still relatively flat until you get to a short uphill and downhill around mile 8. From this point you reenter the city and follow paths roughly along the course of the canal down through Abbey Park before heading back into the city centre. Miles 9-12 are flat-ish and the races runs through Highcross and straight down High Street before eventually turning up New Walk which is the final hill to push through all the way to the finish back at Victoria Park.
Transfers are allowed up to Sunday 24th October and after that point no further transfers will be allowed. Deferrals are possible up until Sunday 3rd October and after that point no further deferrals will be allowed. Water stations are provided approximately every 3 miles, with water served in cups.
