Grand Union Canal Spring Half Marathon

Date / Time
Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
Length 13.10 miles (21.1 km)

TO CELEBRATE 10 YEARS OF THE GRAND UNION CANAL HALF MARATHON, WE HAVE ADDED A SPRING 'SPECIAL EDITION' EVENT ON 9th APRIL! This means you have the opportunity to run this lovely race in Spring (9th April) and in Autumn (12th Nov).


This is a one-off and places will be limited, so don't miss this opportunity.  And for those who enter both races at the same time, we are offering a fantastic discounted price of £38 for BOTH races (£40 unaffiliated) - please see website for details and select one of the "BOOK NOW" buttons.


This is a unique point-to-point race from Cowley Recreation Ground in Uxbridge along the Grand Union Canal towpath to Cassiobury Park in Watford. A lovely flat, scenic, unusual, multi-terrain course. Traffic-free apart from one minor road crossing near the start. Great spectator-friendly start at Cowley Rec & finish in Cassiobury Park!


As this is a point-to-point race, you can choose to leave your car at the finish and use the bus to get to the start - your car will then be waiting for you when you've finished. You can book and pay for your seat on the bus when you register.


Please visit our website for full race details, including mementos and winners' prizes, course map, and so on.
