Places to Watch The ASICS Fleet Pre-London Half Marathon

With its large field, The ASICS Fleet Half Marathon is an excellent event to watch. This page includes a listing of the best places to watch the race along with the times the first runners are expected to reach these points.

  • Bear in mind that there will be road closures in force and it may be necessary to be at these points well before the runners arrive.
  • For watching the race at the start or finish or any of the roads around the start or finish, please park in the Fleet town centre car parks only. There is no parking available in Calthorpe Park. In addition, we strongly advise against parking in roads on the half marathon course as this not only inconveniences local residents but also can disrupt the race itself.
  • Please do not block any exits or entrances.
  • There are a number of pubs on the route. If you are looking for a drink or a meal, we are happy to recommend these.

This enables the runners to be viewed twice as they start and complete a lap around the town centre. Viewers can then view the finish in Calthorpe Park.

NOTE: 2018 sees the introduction of a junior fun run.  This will follow across the first part of the main race taking in Merivale, Leawood Road, Crookham Road turning left into Reading Road North and returning to Calthorpe Park only.

Fleet Road Runners will go along Fleet Road twice in the 2nd and 5th mile. A great early point in the race to see your family and friends 10.30

  • Looking forward to run again at Fleet! As foreign military working at the NATO Maritime HQ in Northwood at first I thought it was the Navy Half Marathon championship. What a surprise to see that the Half Marathon was in the village of Fleet (and not the Naval Fleet). Enjoyed the race tremendously and finished 1st as old man 45+. See you!
