Places to Watch The Brooks Fleet Pre-London Half Marathon

With its large field, The Brooks 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.
