Sunday 26th January is an important date for Farnborough as it hosts the fourth Farnborough Half Marathon, an instant success, it has sold out every year since it's creation. Home of the world famous Air Show, Farnborough was crying out for a major running event and now, with the full support of Rushmoor Borough Council, we are pleased to say the town has an established one - The Farnborough Winter Half Marathon. The start and finish area will again be under the famous Airship hangar in Farnborough Business Park, which now stands as a monument to the past as a great piece of industrial art. A revision of the route to avoid the two laps at the start in Farnborough Business Park, and makes the route faster than ever. Starting at the famous hangar, the route does a loop of the Business Park before heading out to the Frank Whittle roundabout and around the airfield to Fleet Road. Running along Fleet Road to Farnborough Road the route then drops down Government Hill and then back towards the canal along Shoe Lane, Laffans Lane and back onto the Fleet Road, from there the route returns to the finish in the reversing the outboudn route. Entirely traffic free, we feel that the Farnborough half is not only the first major half marathon of the year it is also one of the flatest, fastest routes in the South.
