We are excited to announce the return of the Slough Half Marathon, following an 18 year break.
Sponsored by Morgan Sindall Group companies, the event will take place on Sunday 14 October.
The Slough Half Marathon is perfect for both recreational runners, perhaps entering a timed race for the first time, or competitive runners looking to achieve a personal best.
We’ve got a brand new course covering most parts of the town’s roads – starting and finishing at the picturesque Salt Hill Park.
All finishers will receive a medal, technical race t-shirt and goodie bag and there will be trophies for the top three male and female finishers, and age group winners.
The entry fee for 2018 is £30 (£28 if you belong to an affiliated running club).
The race will take place on Sunday 14 October. The start time is 9am.
The race village will be in:
Salt Hill Park
The race will start and finish at this location.
Our brand new course covers most parts of Slough – you really will be running this town!
A basic map of the course is now available. More detail will be added to the map in the coming months, along with a full course description.
Slough is a highly accessible town so why not leave your car at home for the day and travel to the event using public transport? Slough train station is just a few minutes walk from Salt Hill Park and is also easy to reach by bus as it’s at the heart of the town.
Did you also know Slough has a town-wide cycle hire scheme, similar to the Santander Cycles in London? It’s simple to use and the cheapest form of public transport in town! Learn more on the Slough Cycle Hire website.
Still can’t tempt you? We’ll be publishing car parking locations closer to the event.
Your race pack will be available to pick up from the race village on race day between 7.30-8.30am.
