The Route

The Kenilworth Half Marathon route is an undulating out and back course primarily along quiet country lanes with the first and last mile on the outskirts of the town. Although there are several small hills, many runners have obtained PB times on the course.

The course is not closed to traffic, however over 60 marshalls are there to guide you on your way and provide encouragement.

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