The Hereford Festival of Running –was born out of the growing popularity of the Hereford Half Marathon, 10K and 5K and the need for us to provide local and national runners a single lap, challenging and beautiful marathon. The event is organised by St. Michael's Hospice who welcome runners of all abilities.
The Hereford Marathon is the only single lap marathon in the area. Covering 26.2miles of beautiful Herefordshire countryside and incorporating both flat and hilly sections. The marathon is for runners looking for a challenge and the opportunity to take in some of Hereford’s glorious countryside while being looked after by an expert support team.
The Hereford Half Marathon is a challenging road race covering just over 13 miles. This is a single-lap course offering runners a good balance of undulating and flat sections. It is an ideal route for those wanting to challenge themselves or train for a marathon.
