If you're looking for that fast race to get a PB or a training race before The London Marathon in April, then The Spring Shakespeare is perfect for you.
For newer runners, or those wanting to race a shorter distance, the 5km is ideal. You also have the advantage of starting with the other runners who will help carry you along to the finish. Many runners achieve PB's and return to do these races every year. If you like the Spring Shakespeare, then why not enter the Summer Shakespeare in July or the Autumn one in November and see how much faster you can go at the end of the season?
The course is based on a 5km traffic free lap on tarmac and is designed to give spectators lots of opportunities to cheer you on. With no roads or traffic to navigate, all you have to do is concentrate on running. Easy. We hope you enjoy running with us.
The Marathon starts at 10:00, followed by the Half Marathon a few minutes later and then a few minutes after the Half Marathon runners start the 10k and 5k runners will start. Registration is approximately 5 minutes away from the start.
All competitors will receive a finisher's medal and prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd male and female overall (10k, Half Marathon & Marathon Distances only) All male and female 10 year age group winners will receive a free entry into next year's event.
