BAG DROP: There will be a bag drop at Registration in the Pump Room Gardens.

START & FINISH LINE: The start and finish lines are in the Pump Room Gardens.

The Leamington Spa Half Marathon returns for a sixth year! After five sold-out events in a row, demand is high! We are thrilled to bring you a traffic free course starting and finishing in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa alongside the iconic Royal Pump Room Gardens. The 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 to finish back where you started.

We are proud supporters of the Myton Hospices as our charity partners for the Leamington Spa Half Marathon.
Myton has three hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick, and have the only Hospice Inpatient beds in Coventry and Warwickshire. They care for people living with a wide range of terminal illnesses including Respiratory, Heart & Neurological conditions, Cancer and Organ failure.

Runners will have the option to enter the race for free by committing to fundraising £100 for The Myton Hospices, and a portion of the profits from the race will be donated directly to the charity to help fund the continued support of their patients and families.

We offer finishers medals and OPTIONAL t-shirts for all runners, in order to try and do our small part to reduce waste going to landfill.

Chip timing, post-race snacks and the chance to purchase race photography all come as standard from Raceways and afterwards why not stay and enjoy what the town has to offer from its many lovely cafes and pubs?

Our charity partners Myton Hospices will be hosting the Myton Kids Mile, a FREE to enter Kids Fun Run which starts and ends next to the adult finish line and all children receive a FREE medal, so the whole family can enjoy the fun!

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 and get Sunday 23rd June 2024 in your diary for what is sure to be a great race and a memorable family day out!

We’ll see you there!

// THE SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OUR RACES

At Raceways Events CIC, we are striving to do all we can to reduce the environmental impact of all our races, while continuing to deliver the great events our runners expect from us every year. Here are just some of the ways we are improving the sustainability of our events…

Recycling and Litter:

We operate a “No Trace Policy” at all of our races. Our teams sweep the race route fully to collect all litter, which is then discarded appropriately. We work with local waste disposal operators to ensure suitable recycling options are available for the disposal of all litter associated with our races.

We also ensure that all water bottles or cups are collected and recycled appropriately.

Water:

Where possible, we endeavour to avoid using single use plastic bottles at our water stations, and seek out solutions using mains water supply and water cups where possible. Where our race partners provide finish line water bottles, we keep these to a minimum (depending on the number of runners) and ensure they are recyclable where possible.

Medals:

We have shifted to using wooden medals at all our races. These are designed and manufactured in the UK, which significantly reduces the carbon footprint from transport, packaging and production compared to metal medals that are usually imported from China. They are also fully recyclable, which significantly reduces the waste going to landfill after a race.

T Shirts:

As with our medals, we have decided to offer finishers T shirts as an optional extra, for a small fee. This allows us to only order the precise number needed, which will reduce the number of left over T shirts that end up being thrown away. We can also produce higher quality T shirts, which means that they are not simply worn once and discarded, never to be worn again.

Goody bags:

As with many of our fellow event organisers, we have moved away from physical goody bags for all race finishers. You can still get your post-race snack, water, and medal or T shirt (if you’ve purchased one!), but they’ll be ready to be collected individually.

Registration:

To reduce our paper use, we do as much as possible through online processes and email communications. All registrations are taken through online portals, we send out all our race information (before and after the race) via email and posted on our websites, and (where possible) have race numbers collected at race HQ prior to the race rather than posting them out.
