Leicester Marathon 2012


Thousands of runners took to the streets on Sunday 14 October in the Leicester Marathon, which started and ended at Victoria Park.

 

Fund-raisers ran in 5 different races:

 

  • The Marathon
  • A Half Marathon – the full route breaks off after 6 miles
  • A 5k Fun Run – from Abbey Park to Victoria Park
  • A Relay – teams of four will each run around 3.25 miles of the full marathon route
  • The Ted Toft Mile for Young People

 

The marathon and half marathon races took runners along Melton Road and up past  Thurmaston, where the full and half-marathon split.

 

Those competing in the 13-mile circuit headed through Watermead Country Park and Birstall, while runners in the 26-mile course continued through Barkby, Rearsby and up to Thrussington before turning back to the city.

 

The official race charities were Loros and the Matt Hampson Trust, with entry fees going to these charities.
