The St Neots Half Marathon is firmly established on the race calendar with a developing reputation for putting on a top class event. The course is renowned as potential for PB’s as its three mile downhill finish allows for some seriously fast times. 2017 saw a complete sell out of 1750 race entries within six hours of opening. This year is shaping up to be an even better race. The new and improved start and finish for 2015, 2016 & 2017 worked well and will be in place again for 2018.
