We would love you to join our team for this half marathon event. 

The race starts with a tour of Northampton’s heritage, starting at the Guildhall, touring the town centre and returning to the Guildhall before heading out of town for some picturesque countryside running. The car park and finish is in the grounds of Delapre Abbey, a 20 minute walk from the start in the town centre

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of my fundraising journey. The event was fantastic, I received my fundraising pack in good time for the event and there was lots of support on the day to help me through the ½ marathon. Lizee in the fundraising team, kept in regular contact which helped me to not only achieve my target but to nearly triple it! Cannot wait for my next event to help such a good cause!
