The fifth year and a new(ish) course

The Vale of York Half Marathon: the fast, flat, PB-loving half marathon in aid of Sue Ryder just got better. This year (our fifth) the race will start on a real (but not live!) runway. Our hosts (and friends) at Sherburn Aero Club are closing the airfield to traffic to let you taxi to the start and take off (with clearance from Air Traffic Control) on 13.1 flat miles on scenic closed roads south of York. For the novice runner this is a perfect introduction to a longer distance. For the more seasoned racer it is a genuine PB opportunity. And for those training for an autumn marathon it fits perfectly into your training schedule. Follow the event on Twitter and Facebook to get all the news on our fifth year surprises.

NOTE PARKING ARRANGEMENTS BEFORE ENTERING

For the first time, all parking will be at the Aero Club and the race itself will start on a real runway. Consequently access to and from the race car park will be strictly controlled. All vehicles must be in the car park before 09:00 (when access will close) and no vehicle will be permitted to leave before 12:00 under any circumstances. For the safety and security of all runners, spectators, volunteers and Aero Club staff there will be no exceptions to this.
