Stafford Half Marathon

16th March 2014

In 2014 we will be celebrating 30 years of the Stafford Half Marathon, with the first race taking place in 1984.


The 2014 Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 16 March, and will start in Stafford Street (town centre) at 10am.

The route will head off from the town centre into Stafford's surrounding countryside on traffic-controlled roads, incorporating two steady climbs before returning to the Market Square via Victoria Park.

Each participant will be rewarded with a specially commissioned medal along with a technical t-shirt. There are also prizes given for open and vet categories. Local community groups, bands, school children and anyone else are encouraged to get involved and offer support to the runners along the course.

Also on Sunday 16 March as part of the Half Marathon event day programme the School and Family Fun Run will fill the town centre with fun and fancy dress.
