Love Luton Half Marathon & 10K brings incredible excitement and energy to the town with just under 1,300 runners enjoying closed roads. Starting in Stockwood Park the course takes in some of the highlights of Luton including the iconic Luton Hoo estate and Mansion House before finishing in the town centre. The course will be officially measured and held under a full UKA License.


The Half Marathon begins in Stockwood Park. It will run through Luton on closed roads taking in the beautiful Luton Hoo estate running past the iconic mansion house and finishes in the heart of the town centre.

The 10K will start in Stockwood  Park, run through Luton and finish in the town centre.

Covid restrictions permitting, the races will start in a mass start format. A time trial format, with the athletes with the fastest predicted times going off first will be used if there are restrictions in place at the time.
