This is a new Trail type Half marathon based in Swindon, Wiltshire.
Starting and finishing at Lydiard Park. It takes in a chunk of the 50k route, which will also be running on the same day.
After a few years of issues with the Swindon half Marathon. I wanted to try and stage a route that removed the requirements for road closures and all the issues that come with a road based event.
This is a test event. One that I hope will take off over the coming years.
As mentioned, this route has been devised to remove the need for road closures and to reduce the amount of road crossings along the course.
If you have any constructive ideas about the route and how it can be improved, please email me and I will take it on board for the following year.
