Event Profile

We are delighted to announce that Stroud Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 27th October 2024

Although not flat, the course is a great place for a fast time. Suitable for racers, recreational runners and novices alike.

We look forward to seeing you on race day

The race starts and finishes on the Cainscross Road, adjacent to Marling School field.

Free car parks are situated around Stroud. Maximum walk time is approximately 10-15 minutes. Sat Nav postcodes, Cheapside Carpark (by Station) – GL5 3BL, Cainscross Carpark – GL5 4JQ, London Road – GL5 2AP. There is NO parking available at Marling School (Race Start or Finish)


Start Time: 09.00hrs
Location: Marling School, Cainscross Road, Stroud, GL54HE
UKA Licence Number: TBC


Some roads around the route will be closed for the safety of runners and volunteer marshals. Details of the road closures will be released nearer the time of the event for residents.

In 2024 we will be providing all finishers with an awesome new, metal medal supplied from within Great Britain. Please see the #bling you will earn below.

This year we will be providing water stations with cups for all. The cups will be fully recyclable and will make their way to the recycling centre after the race.



The use of personal stereos, iPods, phones or other music devises is not allowed under UKA rule 240 S5 – the wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic.

The wearing of such equipment may prevent you from hearing instructions from marshals and other event staff as well as the hearing of sirens/horns from emergency services and other vehicles. By wearing such devices you are putting yourself and those around you at risk.

Rule 240 S5 also accepts use of conductive headphones, however the final decision lies with the Event Organiser, and we DO NOT allow their use as it is impossible for marshal to differentiate between them and other types of headphones when runners pass them.

The Event Organisers will have no responsibility should this rule be ignored. Please do not risk our ability to be granted a future licence.

Runners seen to be wearing headphones will be disqualified by the Event Organisers
