stafford half | route 2020

This year's half marathon will start in Earl Street, at the junction with Broad Street. You should make your way to the start area at 9.30am. The line up area in Earl Street is for runners only.

Please walk down Greengate Street from Market Square towards the Ancient High House museum, take the walkway at the side of the museum past St. Mary's Church turning right onto Earl Street. Alternative routes to the start line up area include Mill Street or through Guildhall Shopping Centre.

Please DO NOT attempt to walk up Mount Street to the start line.

Please Note: Due to flooding on the Isabel Trail along the section of the route that runs underneath the Eccleshall Road Bridge there will be an amendment to the 13.1 mile course.

Instead of joining the Isabel Trail at Izaak Walton Street the runners will stay on the A34 Stone Road until they reach the Eccleshall Road roundabout and then take the Subway running underneath Greyfriars to Nursery Lane. The runners will then pick up the Isabel Trail path and return to the town centre finish line as normal. The course will be re-measured by an official member of the Association of UK Course Measurers to take into account these changes and the start line will be adjusted accordingly.
