Runners quick off the mark


Around 1200 runners snapped up places for the Stafford Half marathon just 24 hours after entries opened. A record 3,500 places are up for grabs this year – but people were urged to book early as they expected spaces to go in record quick time.

The Borough Council run event takes place on Sunday 20 March 2016 with a start time of 10am and each participant will receive a medal along with a running t-shirt. Runners must enter online at
Crowds, including local community groups and school children, line the 13.1 mile route to cheer on the runners. Entry for this year’s event will be closed when the capacity is reached.
As part of the Stafford Half Marathon event programme the Fun Run will also take place in the town centre on the same day. More details about how to enter the fun run will be made available soon.
