Overview

Run Leicester is a complete re-invention of the Leicester Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay Events, with a renewed focus on creating a fantastic race atmosphere for all. The event takes place on closed roads around Leicester on Sunday 11 October 2020.

Home to an incredible running community, Run Leicester will see thousands of runners take to the streets of our wonderful city across different distances in celebration of all things running. Soak up the race day atmosphere by taking part in the Run Leicester Marathon and Half Marathon, or cover a shorter distance as part of a relay team.

Later this year, we’ll be announcing a newly revised route, taking in more of Leicester’s iconic sites in the city centre. Expect entertainment to keep you going all around the route, and look forward to being welcomed back into our newly re-designed race arena on Victoria Park.

Rain before, during and after! But I still enjoyed the event! And the supporters were excellent. I have run the half a few years and continue to do so because it is local. And despite the run UP New Walk at the end!  Seems never ending. Still possible to get a half PB though...Read full review

The rain made this a challenge, or was it my injury...either way the crowds were out in force on a miserable day, and thanks to them and some other runners on the day I made it to the finish, a long time after I had planned to be there. Well managed and spectators and athletes...Read full review
