English Half Marathon


Registration fee: £20

Join our team and help us fight for every childhood.

Trainers illustrationThe English Half Marathon takes in stunning landmarks such as The Halliwell Jones Stadium, The River of Life on Bridge Street and The Cultural Quarter, before the spectacular Golden Gates finish.

Every runner will receive a medal, t-shirt and goodies at the finish line. Runners and spectators will also have access to a special event village with a food festival, live music and so much more!

Be part of not just a run but an unforgettable journey where every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that when a child needs us, we’re there. Together we can rebuild children’s lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore.

Get a charity place

For a place in the English Half Marathon, we ask that all runners raise a minimum sponsorship of £250 minimum sponsorship and £150 if you're running the 10K. Both events require a £20 registration fee.
