Silverstone Half OctoberVisit Race Website
The Run Silverstone Half Marathon is a unique opportunity to run on this famous track and the route has low elevations so a PB time is a real possibility on this 500 acre site.
Each finisher receives a medal along with water and a tasty snack - getting these is a self-service process.
A number of COVID-secure measures are in place for safety including start waves and a one-way system. There are no spectators permitted at the event.
Start Waves Procedure due to Coronavirus
There is no mass start and each runner is allocated a start wave time between 08:00 and 12:40. This time will be sent in your pre-event email by 10 November. Is it sugested to arrive between 30 to 60 minutes before your start wave.
These waves are allocated by pace (not distance) to reduce the need to overtake on the route and people of a similar pace will be placed in the same wave.
Each wave will consist of all distances (5K, 10K and Half Marathon).
Wheelchair entrants will be at the head of the first wave at 08:00 with a 5-minute interval following before the first runners cross the start line.
To run with a friend or family members it is best to submit the same estimated finish times.
The 5K, 10K and Half Marathon courses will be open simultaneously for the duration of the event and will be slightly different to last year. You will not complete multiple laps for any distance, the Half Marathon course uses the perimeter road as well as the circuit, so there are only short sections of the course that you use more than once. The courses follow the wide Silverstone circuit, pit lanes and perimeter road with plenty of space available. There will be short sections of the course where overtaking is not possible.
The courses for the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon are not the same.
