About the event

The Green Lantern is a circular 14 mile 'half marathon', which follows the Green Circle clockwise around Exeter, through wooded valleys, meadows, bicycle lanes and the banks of the Exe.

This is a lovely mix of trails, meadows, playing fields and flatlands which run alongside the Exe, through the beautiful Ludwell Valley, Hoopern Valley, Redhills and Mincing Lake Country Park.

What else do you need to know?

Turn up, collect your race pack and run.

All entrants will receive chip timing, a subsidised (new/foldable) waterproof map of the route, a zoom 3D overview of the course and a Youtube walkthrough.
