The Worthing Half Marathon is run on a fully closed road course. It is probably one of the fastest courses in the South – It is flat, scenic and being by the coast a great excuse to run over Valentines weekend!
The race starts adjacent to New Street on Marine Drive just west of the lido. Runners run west for 1.2 miles with a small additional loop before a U-turn at George V Avenue and head back east. At 3.5 miles the race continues up W Buildings before an anti clockwise loop of suburban roads. Spectators could jump between the points quite easily on Grand Avenue with just 670 metres from seafront to the North most point (Lansdowne Road).
At 7 miles runners return to the seafront and head west until 10.5 miles where they turn on the barren lands of the western most point and head back east. Once back at 12.5 miles they will swing right onto the esplanade for 800 metres and into the finish.
