THE LEAMINGTON SPA HALF MARATHON IS BACK FOR 2021

The Leamington Spa half marathon that was voted the 2nd best half marathon in the UK in 2019, takes in the beautiful town and surroundings of one of Warwickshire’s finest spa towns, Royal Leamington Spa. Used by many as a course to achieve a PB or for those looking to try their running feet at their first half marathon, the Leamington Spa Half Marathon is a UKA measured traffic free road race.

Your health and safety is our priority, stay Covid Safe

As Raceways continues to plan and organise events during this difficult time, we want to assure you that we are taking every precaution to organise a safe and socially distanced event. We are working with the local Council and our suppliers to deliver an event you can be confident in.

With this in mind we are sad to say that at this time we will not be able to deliver the Kids Fun Run. If however restrictions change, and we feel we can deliver the fun run in a safe way we will reintroduce this part of the event at a later date, so please keep an eye on our social media and website for details.

COVID-19 INFO

 

COVID-19 INFORMATION

After the recent pandemic there will be several changes to the race day in order to keep the event as COVID secure as possible for all athletes, event crew, and members of the public.

Here are the important things to remember:

Start Process – staggered over an hour, from 8.30am until 9.30am

  • Race numbers will be issued according to your expected finish time and split into waves of 200 runners. We will announce the start times for each wave nearer the race date
  • Each wave of 200 runners will be called forward from a holding area to the start funnel, to create a socially distance queue to the start line
  • Runners will be released in race number order, fastest first, at staggered intervals. This will drastically increase how spread out you are on the course

Event HQ – open at 7.30am, only accessible for registered Leamington Spa Half Marathon runners

  • There will be no on the day registration – all race numbers and chips will be posted out in advance to you
  • We cannot provide baggage drop and storage, to avoid any congregation of runners and prevent surface transmission of COVID-19
  • Please arrive changed and ready to race, as close to your wave start time as possible
  • Please travel to the race alone if possible, and do not bring anyone who is not registered for the race. We are unable to accommodate spectators at this years race
  • There will be hand sanitiser at all access points, and the toilets. Please respect a 2 metre social distance from other runners at all times
  • The Event HQ will close at 1pm

Route Map 

  • Roads will be fully closed for the race, on a rolling basis. This has been extended this year by an hour to accommodate the wider spread of runners on the course. Once they reopen, you may complete the race at your own risk
  • Please respect a 2 metre social distance from other runners at all times, and give plenty of space if you need to overtake
  • There are three water stations on the course, but please bring water with you to reduce the need to use these stations
  • Extra toilets are available at the half way point of the race, with a queuing system to ensure social distancing

We ask that all runners take a Lateral Flow Test in the week before the race, and on the morning of the race itself. If you test positive for COVID_19 on either test, you must enter self isolation and you MUST NOT attend the race.

You can order LFT from the Government website at https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

Your full race day information pack will be sent to you closer to the race date. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us at office@raceways.org.uk

We can’t wait to see you in July!
