The Route

This year the race starts and finishes in Kenilworth Town Centre and also passes through the grounds of Kenilworth Castle.

The Kenilworth Half Marathon route is an undulating out and back course in the town centre and along quiet country lanes with the first and last part on the Town main street. Although there are several small hills, many runners have obtained PB times on the course.

The course has a rolling road closure in place.


There are 4 drink point locations on route and one at the finish where water is provided.

Water stations are available at approximately 2 mile intervals. If you require energy products or additional fluid, please make arrangements to carry your own.
