This event is sold out!

Sunday 22nd January is an important date for Farnborough as it hosts the first ever Farnborough Half Marathon. Home of the famous Air Show, Farnborough has been crying out for a major running event and now, with the full support of Rushmoor Borough Council, we are pleased to launch the Farnborough Winter Half Marathon.

The start and finish area are going to be under the famous Air Ship hangar in Farnborough Business Park, which now stands as a monument of the past as a great piece of industrial art.

From the hangar the route takes you past the end of the runway and back to the start area so that spectators get a second chance to see you go by. And then it is a surprisingly rural lap through South Wood Park then Kennels Lane (on traffic-free roads) before a short stretch along Basingstoke Canal and back on to quiet and traffic-free roads to the finish.

The route is predominantly flat, with just a rise at the south end of Farnborough Airfield at 2 and 11 miles, with a nice 1-mile downhill sweep to the finish.

The 5km Fun Run is open to all runners over the age of 8 years (under 12s must be accompanied by an adult), is on the first 5km of the Half Marathon route and is traffic free.
