Trail Half Marathon
This picturesque Half Marathon course will take you running through the stunning grounds of Wimbledon Common. Through the open park to shaded woodland paths, the route covers a range of different terrains sure to keep you on your toes!
The route starts on Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields and will take in sights such as the historic, centuries-old Wimbledon Windmill. For the first 1.5 miles of the loop, the course slopes upwards before leveling out for the next 3.5 miles and then finishing with a 1.5 mile descent. The course has a few long stretches where runners may encounter pedestrians and by then the race will have spread out, all you need to do is run straight.
All turning points will be signposted and there will be plenty of marshals to help you on your way. Water stations will be located at the 4 mile, 6 mile, 10 mile and 12 mile spots as well as at the finish. The course welcomes runners of all abilities and is a perfect introduction to trail running for beginners. We recommend trail shoes although road shoes may also be sufficient depending on the weather in the warmer summer months.
