Continuing its illustrious history as one of Gloucestershire’s premier sporting events, the Tewkesbury Half Marathon and Five Mile Fun Run will once again see up to 2,000 runners hit the tarmac on Sunday 19 May 2013.
Organised by Race Timing Systems Ltd, the 13.1-mile half marathon offers the ideal opportunity for active locals to take in the sights of the medieval town, famed for its timber framed buildings and 12th century Abbey, as they whiz past in a race to the finish line.
This year’s route is essentially the same as previous ones, with the first few miles moving through suburban and light industrial areas towards the M5, followed by pleasant countryside and the pretty hamlets and villages of Aston Cross, Kinsham, Kemerton and Bredon – before returning through the historic High Street.
Runners will be kept well hydrated, thanks to a number of water stations dotted along the route, and for the first time, each finisher of the half marathon will receive a technical t-shirt, goody bag and bespoke medal.
And what’s more, there will be ample parking, together with changing and showering facilities too.
Supporting the main event will be a Five Mile Fun Run, taking place on the same day, which is said to be suitable for those who might enjoy a less gruelling challenge.
