Kingston Half Marathon

Half Marathon starts in Kingston's Ancient Market Place

So, you've run a 5K — maybe even a 10K — and now you're ready for something more challenging.  Well then, the Kingston Half Marathon on Sunday, 7 October 2018 may be a good place to start.

LEAH has secured one runner and now wants to recruit another to join him.  We’re offering this place free on the understanding that you will achieve your “PB” in sponsorship by raising £600 to train a volunteer tutor.  At LEAH, we trained 37 tutors last year and there is a growing demand for the free 1:1 English language support that we provide to isolated ethnic minority adults in our community. 

The Kingston Half Marathon is now in its third year and attracts over 1,000 competitors.  The race starts in Kingston’s Ancient Market Place and covers five miles through the town before it crosses Kingston Bridge and turns onto Barge WalkAt Hampton Court Palace, the race continues through Thames Ditton and then turns back towards Kingston and the finish in the Ancient Market Place. 

If you are interested in this free place, please write to   Your 10-week training plan starts now!
