The race has sold out in record time with only reserved tickets remaining available. There have been concerns in previous years about runner safety, which has resulted in a record number of roads being closed as the 1,500 competitors limber up as they look to the start line.

The half-marathon is expected to cause delays with race organisers and police alike asking for your patience concerning the matter. There are many spots along the roads that make great viewing for spectators, among these is the start and finish line, Marlings School on Cainscross Road where athletes will be gathering to receive the commemorative t-shirts and the top 3 male and female runners will be awarded medals.

Both the Marathon & Half Marathon begins with a short circuit of the Town Centre, before heading under the Railway Bridge and onto the newly redeveloped Thames/Severn Canal Path towards Chalford for the Marathon and towards Stonehouse for the Half Marathon.stroud-half-marathon-plus-start-map
