Half Marathon

The 41th edition of the Henley Half Marathon sees the same famous course offering runners a beautiful scenic route through Henley, over the famous bridge, and along the Thames Valley.

The Half Marathon has been run every year (except for 2020) since 1983!

Welcoming first-time half-marathoners, seasoned endurance runners and everyone in between you’ll find people of all paces to keep you feeling strong as you take in the sights of this charming course.

A single 13.1-mile heart shaped loop takes you from Henley Rugby Club. The first 6km takes runners through the town, over the historical Henley Bridge, past the Leander Club, one of the oldest rowing clubs in the world! Looping Remenham Lane, into the countryside, returning along the Thames towpath, you cross Henley Bridge once more to begin the second loop, back through town centre and out to “heartbreak hill” the famous mile long climb seen as a personal challenge by many runners. 

Following the descent, it’s a fast and flat run back to the Rugby Club.

We use road closures at the start to ensure safe passage for all runners through the town centre.

Entry £35.00
