In 2023, the Farnborough Winter Half Marathon once again took place on its traditional date at the end of January. After a brief sojurn as a summer Half in 2021 we really enjoy returning to a winter event permanently again. For those who remember the icy chill conditions of the inaugural event in 2017 or the snow of 2018, the weather in 2023 was just as cold! There were some phenomenal times, at the front and all the way down the field: there were four runners (in 2022) under 65 minutes - all inside the old course record - and nearly 200 inside 90 minutes. This year's race was no different with more extremely fast times across the board! Farnborough is generally the first major half marathon of the season so the weather will always be a roll of the dice in January, but now we know just how fast the route is, we expect it to be even more popular than usual. The 2024 race is confirmed as a qualifying race for the England Athletics Masters Programme, giving Masters Athletes an opportunity to earn their England Age Group Masters vest. For those of you not familar with the route, it is a fast, largely flat, traffic-free course, starting and finishing at the historic Airship Hangar adjacent to Farnborough Airport. It is the same route as the previous three editions, taking in a delightful semi-rural circuit which broadly circles Farnborough airport in an anti-clockwise direction. From its inception in 2017 the event has been very popular with local runners and those from further afield looking for an early race to test their winter fitness. The main race is limited to 2500 runners and generally sells out early so don't delay if you are thinking of running. Entries will be closed when we have reached our limit. Since it helps with our planning we incentivize you to enter early.

This event is part of Farnborough Winter.
