Adidas Silverstone half-marathon, Sunday 15 March 2015
Silverstone Motor Racing Circuit, Northamptonshire

Brought to you by the organisers of the London Marathon, this half marathon (13.1 miles) offers everyone a great opportunity to take part in a mass participation event at a great location.

Since its first race in 1948 Silverstone has become one of the world's most famous motor sport venues as well as being the home of the Formula 1 British Grand Prix, but this run is not just for motor racing enthusiasts. Silverstone offers a unique venue with many years experience of running first class events with great facilities.

Whether you're attempting your first half marathon or are a veteran at this distance, it's a great event to be part of.

We have purchased Charity Places in the race and are asking our Charity Place runners to raise a minimum of £100 to cover our costs and raise funds for the Polly Parrot Appeal in aid of our Children’s Services at Basildon Hospital. We will, of course, welcome any additional funding above and beyond the minimum. 
If you would like a place, please email or telephone Dee on 01268 524900 extn 2894 confirming that you wish to be one of our Charity Place Runners.
