In 2019, the Coventry Half Marathon will return as part of the Festival of Running. Coinciding with the city's Year of Wellbeing and its year as a European City of Sport, the Festival of Running includes children's events, and a 5k Fun Run, alongside the Half Marathon.

Half Marathon runners start at Jordan Well, and the route takes you around the city centre before heading up Radford Road and out into country lanes for some great views across the city and surrounding countryside. There are a few hills out here (but nothing insurmountable!) before you loop back down into town to complete your circuit of the City Centre and finish by the Cathedral.

5k fun-runners follow the beginning of the Half Marathon route before looping into the city centre to take in a few city landmarks, once the loop is completed the course rejoins the end of the Half Marathon course for the same Cathedral finish.

Runners will receive a medal and moisture-wicking running t-shirt, and get to enjoy physio, massage, street food and music at the finish line. Prizes are on offer for top finishers, and for best fancy dress in the 5k Fun Run!
