Winchester Half 2019

Join us

Join Team Macmillan for the Winchester Half Marathon! This fantastic event offers runners a race along closed roads through the heart on Winchester.

Winchester Half Marathon is a beautiful run that starts and finishes in the centre of Winchester outside the Guildhall. The Winchester Half Marathon is a very scenic route through the idyllic setting of the countryside and takes in landmarks such as St Catherine’s Hill, Winchester Cathedral and King Alfred the Great. The route incorporates the high street, Romsey Road and Sparsholt Road to take the runners into the heart of the Winchester countryside. Towards the end of the route, runners will pass by St Catherine’s Hill, though fortunately not up the hill! The race finishes back outside the Guildhall with a picture perfect view of King Alfred. This is a day for everyone to get involved from athletes, first time runners, charities, corporate teams, and volunteers.

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:

  • Our bumper fundraising pack, with a half marathon training guide and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Newsletters to keep you up to date with the Winchester Half news and activities.
  • Access to the Macmillan charity marquee before and after the run.
  • And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

    Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

    Why be part of the green team?

    We want to use this amazing event to make a difference. We know cancer can affect everything; your body, your relationships, your money, everything. But we are here to help people live life, no matter what. We give them the support they need to hold on to who they are and what’s important.

    But we can’t do it without you. Join Team Macmillan for Winchester Half Marathon and we will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up through to when you cross the finish line. Life with cancer is still a life. Join Team Macmillan and help people live it.
