The original “pre-London” half marathon

(including our Junior Mini-Mile event)


Fleet Half Marathon 21st March 2021

Note: There will be very limited new places available for the 2021 Fleet Half Marathon. 

This is because the 2020 event was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic and most runners chose to defer their place to 2021.

Approximately 500 places will be available towards the end of the year – the earliest these will open will be mid-October.   When the entries are open it will be announced via social media and this website.  We will be fully updating this website over the next few months.

We are continuing to monitor the advice from our Governing Body England Athletics to assess what changes need to be made to mass participation events going forward.

Since the first event in 1982, thousands of runners have completed the race and the race has become the highlight of the year’s sporting calendar in Fleet and the surrounding area. Organised by Fleet & Crookham AC – we are all runners ourselves and volunteer to organise grass roots events
