Overview

A two loop course half marathon – 13.1 miles. A fast flat tarmac course, great sea views, mixed ability field. The course starts and finished on the Grand Pier along the sea front, an excellent location of supporters and for competitors to relish the much deserved limelight. Sea views? Check. Road race? Check. Large field? Check. Water/fuel stations? Check. Great music to get us pumped? Check. Enter as a team? Check. Fast course record? Check (1 hour 13 seconds, James Rodgers 2014). Good weather? Check. The Grand Pier Half is Weston Super Mares only half marathon and we welcome competitors far and wide. Our Freak Events team endeavours to deliver the best event possible and with The Grand Pier Half in its third successful year we are assured it will be.
