We are delighted that The Myton Hospices will be one of the official charity partners for this year’s Coventry Half Marathon; and we have FREE places for #TeamMyton
Coventry's Half Marathon is a traffic-free road race set in the heart of Coventry. The race starts at Jordan Well with a half circuit of the town centre leading onto Radford Road before heading into Allesley. As the race leaves Browns Lane, participants enter quiet leafy lanes with a gentle climb leading up to a 400m downhill run before the final climb. The race is challenging but fun at this point which is about 8 miles into the run.
Tamworth Road takes the runners on another downhill section back into suburbia with great views of the city centre skyline from the Coundon area. On the home straight, runners will head back down Radford Road and reach their goal outside the beautiful Coventry Cathedral. One of the most picturesque half marathon finishes in the country.
The Half Marathon will take place as part of an expanded Festival of Running for 2019. This celebration of sport also includes a Children's Mile, Toddler Dash, and inaugural GoRun 5k over the weekend of 23rd and 24th March 2019.
Come and join #TeamMyton on Sunday 24th March 2019 to take on this fantastic Half Marathon challenge!
If you signed up last year but didn’t get to complete the event because of the snow, this could be your chance! The odds are in our favour that we won’t have snow again in March 2019!
We are asking you to pledge to raise £175 in return for a Coventry Half Marathon place, which would cover the cost of 7 hours specialist nursing care at one of our three hospices. We are hoping to have a team of 60 #TeamMyton runners which would fund 420 hours of specialist nursing care!
