Whether you are a keen club runner, doing your first half, or just running for fun, this is the road race for you. A flat and fast course with 1,700 places available. Now in its 39th year.

Follow the Brass Monkey Half Marathon Facebook page for the latest news/updates.

Race instructions and bib numbers will be posted out in advance to the athlete address you provide during registration. If you need to update this information after entry please see these instructions.

Location Facilities - updated for 2022

The race is based at York Racecourse (Google map HERE). Unlike previous years, we are unable to use the Ebor stand and as a result there will be no access to the BM Café or catering.

Extra toilets will be provided in the car park.

There will be no official bag drop area this year, there is an area where bags can be left but this is at your risk.


Limited free parking is available. Please follow signs and directions.


We are only using CHIP times this year and your CHIP time will be used for prizes and places rather than the normal GUN time. The start pens will be elongated to allow for social distancing.
