Overview

Event details 1 mile Fun Run – a great way to complete a challenge as a family 5km - takes in the closed road section through the town centre 10km - the perfect way to challenge runners of all abilities Half Marathon (13.1 miles) – a challenging HM route for first timers and the more experienced The route has something for everyone with some crowd-lined closed roads, an idyllic rural village section through Great Bowden, Welham and Thorpe Langton and a spectacular finish at the Carnival Show Ground. Here you will be greeted by approximately 5000 cheering supporters. The course is fast with good PB potential but with a couple of cheeky hills. Burnmill Road at approximately 11 miles in, will certainly make it a race to remember. Runners will benefit from: Chip timing Medal and T-shirt Free photos Free massage courtesy of the Training Shed, Market Harborough Fantastic prizes up for grabs, including cash for our top 3 male and female Half Marathon finishers. Charity The Carnival of Running has become a major fundraising event for the town and local charities. Since 2015, approximately £100,000 has been raised by runners at this event. Since the event started in 2015, we’ve supported The Squires Effect. We will be donating a proportion of each entry. For each of the last four years, we have donated £2500. In addition, you can RACE FOR FREE if you pledge to raise at least £150 for the charity. Simply enter the race, then email thesquireseffect@gmail.com. They will give you full details of the support package that they provide. If you are running for your own selected charity there are numerous ways to do this, the first would be to notify the particular charity that you intend to run and fundraise for. You can then start getting sponsors or set up your own personal JustGiving or VirginMoneyGiving page to do so online.

Love this event every year. Unfortunately this year the weather was awful - the town carnival that runs alongside the event was cancelled so the crowds weren't out in their masses as usual. As ever, really well organised and fab t-shirt and medal at the finish.
