THE LEAMINGTON SPA HALF MARATHON!
April 20, 2020 – Raceways has today announced the postponement of the Leamington Spa Half Marathon.
This year’s race was originally scheduled for Sunday, July 5, but now new dates are being explored for later in the year. It is hugely disappointing to have to issue this statement, however the safety of our athletes was paramount in our decision, and with the continued uncertainty surrounding the global COVID-19 Pandemic we feel that by postponing the race we will be able to successfully activate it later in the year. We are working with the relevant authorities on a number of possibilities, and hope to be able to communicate the new date in the coming weeks.
Entries will be automatically moved to the new date later in the year, you will not have to do anything. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled race, you will be able to defer your entry to the 2021 race.
We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time, and will be in touch as soon as we have an update.
We are officially an award winning race!
We are thrilled to bring you a traffic free course starting and finishing in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa along side the iconic Royal Pump Room Gardens. The updated course heads north out of Leamington Spa through scenic villages, passing farms and fields in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside before descending back into the town for a tour of Leamington Spa’s stunning historic gardens and parks.
As with all of our events, the #LeamHalf will feature a FREE TO ENTER Kids Fun Run so get the kids signed up today!
The Pump Room Gardens will be home to the #LeamHalf Event Village which is a stones throw from the start and finish lines, Event HQ and the kids zone – so enter today what is sure to be a great race and a memorable family day out!
We’ll see you there!
