Try a new challenge

Race for Life Half Marathon

A Half Marathon is 13.1 miles (or 21k), and is the perfect challenge for women who have previously taken part in one of our 10k events and want to push themselves one step further.

It may be a Half Marathon, but it’s still Race for Life, so we’ll be here every step of the way to support you in your fundraising and training. As with our other events, you can take part however you want - whether you run, jog or walk parts of the course, it’s up to you.


How long does it take to complete a half marathon?

Race for Life Half Marathon

We will do everything we can to support you throughout your race. We want to get you to that finish line but for operational reasons we do have a time limit.

For Half Marathon routes this will be 5 hours. This time limit accommodates someone who continually walks the course - however we don’t recommend this, and we recommend that everyone who takes part be able to jog for at least significant portions of the route.

Anyone who is unable to complete the course within 5 hours will be supported by our event staff to return safely to the main event area.
