Lovely venue! Really is pancake flat, good course for a PB! Steve

I was attracted to this race through its claim of being one of the flattest Half Marathons in the U.K. It’s a claim well justified and I achieved a PB, beating my previous time by 3 minutes! Luke

A great, flat, well organised half marathon.  I really enjoyed the route that looped around the town and then finished along the sea front. Sarah

2019 was the third consecutive year I've run this race. The course is flat and therefore potentially fast. The event always seems well organised, and the slight modifications to the route were an improvement. David

The Worthing Half Marathon is flat, well organised with a great quality medal and lots of freebies and a t shirt. The event village at the finish was vibrant and full of atmosphere. An event that I would definitely do again.
