Entry to Belvoir Half Marathon may still be possible

Belvoir Half Marathon and Fun Run take place next Sunday (April 10).

Race organisers already have more than 500 entries but, provided that the race limit of 700 runners is not exceeded, runners can register on race day after 8am.

The route follows minor roads across the attractive Vale of Belvoir and, because the route is quite flat, many personal best times are recorded. The race attracts entries from all over the UK but the Leicester, Lincoln, Nottingham, Northampton, Coventry and Derby areas provide many runners. There is a large proportion of female runners and veterans.

The race has traditionally been held two weeks before the Virgin London Marathon and many runners consider it to be a good warm-up for that key event.

Both the half marathon and the fun fun will be timed using the “chip-to-chip” system, so that the time is started as each runner crosses the start line. The main race starts at 10am and the fun run at 10.15am.

All finishers will receive a memento of the race and there are prizes for many categories, including teams, which will be presented at around noon. Refreshments and snacks for visitors and runners will be available at Hose Village Hall from 9am, provided by Hose School Parents and Friends Association.

The event is organised by Hose Village Hall in order to raise funds to improve the social and sporting facilities that are offered in the village.
