Set yourself a challenge for 2018. Check out these amazing half marathons and sign up today!

1. Bath Half Marathon

  • Sunday 4 March 2018
  • £30 registration fee - £350 minimum sponsorship 

A fast and flat two-lap course that straddles both sides of the river Avon and avoids all the hills surrounding the city. The course threads through the heart of this beautiful historic city.

It's a charity close to my heart having lost a young friend to cancer. Knowing that raising money can help others hopefully have a positive outlook means a lot.

This is the only half marathon to be held at one of the UK's most popular tourist destinations, Hampton Court Palace, the home of Tudor King, Henry VIII!

3. Virgin Sport Hackney Half Marathon 

  • Sunday 20 May 2018
  • £20 registration fee - £300 minimum sponsorship

Hackney knows how to party! Hackney Half Marathon has firmly marked its position as one of the top 10 half marathons in the UK, attracting over 15,000 runners in 2017. Streets lined with supporters and live entertainment punctuates the route, lifting you across the finish line!

4. Great Manchester Run Half Marathon 

  • Sunday 20 May 2018
  • £25 registration fee - £250 minimum sponsorship 

Introduced as the sister event to the ever popular Great Manchester Run 10k, the Great Manchester Half is back again for 2018, allowing runners to take in all of the sights, sounds and atmosphere of this amazing city!

As soon as you begin fundraising it is as though Teenage Cancer Trust is holding you on their back. The massive support I got before I had even raised £1 was amazing! I'm so impressed and I will definitely raise more for Teenage Cancer Trust in the future!

5. Great North Run

  • Sunday 9 September 2018
  • £35 registration fee - £400 minimum sponsorship

The biggest half marathon in the world can't be beaten. It attracts world class athletes like Mo Farah, is televised by the BBC, and has over 57,000 other runners taking part. What's more, the atmosphere is absolutely electric! 

I loved being able to run and raise money for a cause which is very close to my heart. Coming to the charity tent afterwards and being surrounded by amazing people in a wonderful atmosphere was a perfect way to end the experience. Thank you!

7. Great Birmingham Run

  • £20 registration fee - £200 minimum sponsorship

Birmingham comes alive each October with thousands of runners pounding the streets as they tick off 13.1 miles, encouraged by on course bands, entertainment and cheering crowds.

The support on the day was terrific and it was great to catch up with all the Teenage Cancer Trust team at the finish. All the efforts you went to with drinks and goodies didn't go unnoticed.
