St Albans Half Marathon & 5K
JOIN US FOR THE ST ALBANS HALF MARATHON & 5k ON SUNDAY 13TH JUNE 2021.
A community focused event, St Albans Half Marathon aims to raise money for local charities and organisations as well as put on a great day out for all the family.
Those looking for a challenge can take on the scenic Half Marathon or Walking Half, which takes you on a challenging but rewarding route through the country lanes of St Albans.
Our 5K is open to everyone over 11 and takes you on a route around Verulamium Park. You’ll still experience the great atmosphere we are famous for, and help to support local charities and organisations!

With events around the country being cancelled we are pleased to be able to give you the opportunity to complete this event in a socially distanced environment on a practically traffic free course. The race will be held under a full UK Athletics race license.
The official chip timed half marathon will start at 10am, however, the timings and format are subject to change.
