The start line for the Half Marathon has changed for 2024. 

The race start is Victoria Road – just outside Victoria Park. The line-up zone will be along Tenterbanks.

As the section of the route from the start is narrow and there are a large number of participants it will be helpful if you can line up according to your anticipated finish time, to ensure minimal congestion.

If each runner adopts this sensible approach everyone will move away from the start more smoothly, everyone will be able to get into their running quickly, without incident and have an enjoyable run.

Take up a position behind the start line that is appropriate for your estimated finishing time. There will be estimated finish time markers displayed along the start area fencing and pace runners to help you.
