The Poole Half Marathon features a fast, flat and scenic course out from Poole Park, around Upton Country Park then back along Poole Quay. There will be the usual great Poole Festival of Running atmosphere, with lots of events going on over the weekend, in the Festival Village in Poole Park.
All finishers get a t-shirt and medal.
The cut off time for the Half Marathon is 3 hours.
Minimum age is 18 on day of race.
New in 2018, the first Festival of Running Half Marathon was a great success. The Half Marathon features a multi-terrain harbourside course heading out from Poole Park, heading down Poole Quay, then a loop around Upton Country Park, before heading back down the quay, along Baiter Park to the finish line back in Poole Park. A fast, flat course is run on roads and compacted gravel paths with plenty of support along the way.
It will be fully marshalled with water stations and medical facilities along the route.
