The Run Leicester Half Marathon & 10K is the perfect opportunity to discover our dynamic city like never before.

Home to an incredible running community, Run Leicester sees thousands of participants take to the streets in a celebration of the sport, the people and the wonderful sights.

Not only that, expect an electrifying atmosphere on the day! Cheers, chants and celebration will get you through the 10K or 13.1 mile route. Spectators are encouraged to join the fun in both our runner’s village and along the route.

Lace up your trainers and stretch those legs as the Run Leicester Festival is back!
