he Run Leicester Festival will showcase our wonderful city like never before. Home to an incredible running community, Run Leicester will see thousands of runners take to the streets of our wonderful city across different distances in celebration of all things running. Soak up the race day atmosphere by taking part in the Run Leicester Marathon and Half Marathon, or cover a shorter distance as part of a relay team.

Run Leicester is a complete re-invention of the Leicester Marathon and Half Marathon with a renewed focus on creating a fantastic race atmosphere for all. Later this year, we’ll be announcing a newly revised route, taking in more of Leicester’s iconic sites in the city centre. Expect entertainment to keep you going all around the route, and look forward to being welcomed back into our newly re-designed race arena on Victoria Park.
