The first Potters 'Alf was first held back way back in 1982. The race was originally the full 26.2 marathon distance but in 2005 changed to the half marathon distance due to popular demand. It is a friendly race with loads of support around the course.
An undulating course with a whopper of a hill up Milton Road at around the 11.5 mile mark. The highlight of the race for many runners is the fast finish down into the Potteries.
