Race Start

Each race will have a warm up in the event village 15 minutes prior to the start time.
After the warm up, estimated finish times will be called to the starting pen where our marshals will guide you into a start formation.


During The Race

We will have marshals all around the course as well as distance markers and arrows.

The Half Marathon follows an undulating route, starting and finishing in Solihull town centre.

The course is all on closed roads and tarmac paths.

The route starts by following New Road into Malvern Park, leaving the park via Widney Manor Road, to reach Knowle town centre. A countryside section through Barston and Eastcote follows, which includes the steeper inclines and declines of the course. The route returns to Knowle before following Widney Manor Road and Malvern Park back to Solihull town centre. PB potential.

The 10k follows the start and end of this route, with an earlier turn around point. The route use the same start and finish line as the Half Marathon.
