INFORMATION

Everything you need to know about England’s biggest and best winter half-marathon

Sunday 27th January is an important date for Farnborough as it hosts the third Farnborough Half Marathon, returning after a sell-out first edition. Home of the world famous Air Show, Farnborough was crying out for a major running event and now, with the full support of Rushmoor Borough Council, we are pleased to say the town has one immediately established - The Farnborough Winter Half Marathon.

 

The 5km Fun Run is open to all runners over the age of 8 years (under 12s must be accompanied by an adult), which is on the first 5km of the Half Marathon route and is also traffic free. For 2018 the 5km will be chip timed.

 

For 2018 we are introducing a Kiddies Run for 5 to 8 year olds. This will be on a safe circuit of 800m within the Business Park starting and finishing under the famous Airship Hangar. The kiddies run is free to enter but you should register your children online through the entry link above.
