Severn Bridge Half Marathon

The Severn Bridge Half Marathon returns after a very successful and highly acclaimed inaugural year in 2014. The race was voted BEST NEW RACE in the Runners World Personal Best awards. 

We will be making changes to ensure that the event is even better in 2015: runner only access to the final stages of the course to ease congestion, at least double the number of toilets in two locations, a slick and quick goody bag process...  

The event starts on the Western (Chepstow) end of the Severn Bridge on the motorway itself, and after the crossing takes the B4661 towards Thornbury (which will also be closed to traffic). Then follows a 5 mile loop along scenic and pleasantly undulating country lanes (with one hill) from Elberton, through Littleton upon Severn and Kington, before arriving back on the B4661 to return to the bridge.
