Taking place on June 30th, the 2019 Halifax Marathon is going to be a great way to bring your summer to an exciting and fulfilling start. Incorporating a half Marathon and fun run plus lots of other activities at the event HQ. It's already on many "to-do" lists for the year!A multi-terrain course with hills - one or two big hills - and some fantastic views! The last two or three miles is a lovely long downhill. A great excuse for you, your family, your pets and all your friends to have some fun, raise some much needed funds for a very worthy local charity, and eat cake, lots of cake! Plus family fun run.
Finishers Medal and T-Shirt for all runnersEntertainment: on the well marked course you will be supported by a whole host of people, local running groups and charities etc. The fuel and drink station will have snacks & drinks ready for you as you pass by.Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male/Female finishers.
The Route: is certainly a bit different. With a single lap for Half-Marathon runners and two for the Marathon, its a hilly opening few miles before a kinder run in to the finish. It’s challenging, it’s hilly and it’s very much a taste of Halifax, with urban, upland, woodland and industrial heritage all mixed together!Cut off Times:Cut off time of 7 hours – if you feel this could be a little tight you may start an hour early giving you 8 hours.Race Pack:Race numbers etc, are to be collected on the day from registration.

But keep in touch or drop us an email as this might be changing.How can I check race results? Race results will be published within two days after the race ends, on our website under the 'Results'. On the day results will be available from the Race centre - Somewhere near the Finish Line. It is your responsibility to visit the website if you want them in a hurry!I am unable to compete - Can I give my place to another person? The simple answer is NO, it causes far too many issues with registration both prior too and on event day, causes issues with timing and as a result means we do not offer this option. Please don't ask!
