Sunday 1st October 2023

Leicester's biggest running event returns!

On Sunday 1st October 2023, lace up your trainers and join us and thousands of runners from around the county and beyond together for the Run Leicester Half Marathon and 10K. 

Beginning in Leicester’s Victoria Park, we’ll be taking you on a tour of Leicester’s city centre streets and beautiful parks on our much-loved original half marathon route.

Whether you're running, cheering, or volunteering we hope that you will join us and help us make this year's Run Leicester Half Marathon and 10K the biggest it has ever been! With a strong focus on keeping the beat with entertainment all the way round the route you can expect our best race atmosphere yet!

Registration includes a finishers medal for all runners on the Half Marathon. Late entrants for the 10k should note due to a large number of late entrants; any runners registering for the 10k after 17th Sept will not be entitled to a finisher's medal.
