Monster Half Marathon

The Half Marathon starts outside the awesome Ely Cathedral, you will pass through the City of Ely and onto the river bank of the River Great Ouse. You’ll follow this path to the village of Wicken, the halfway and turnaround point. You will then follow the same route back to the ‘Ship of the Fens’.

The Monster Half Marathon Course

This event is ideal for all; it’s low key and friendly, it’s flat, the route is well marked and there is support on course. With a few obstacles (steps, stiles, cattle grids) along the way, this is more of an adventure / fun (yes you read right) course than one to chase a PB on.

The Half Marathon doubled in size in 2017 and sold out. The increased capacity remains for 2018, to guarantee your place on the start line get signed up!

From 2018 all our running events are going cup / bottle less meaning we will no longer have plastic cups or bottles on the checkpoints. The same drinks will be available on the checkpoints but they will be poured from large reusable containers. This will save a huge amount of waste and prevent litter being left on the course. Ideally you’ll carry a bottle and collapsible cup, at the very least you must carry a bottle / flask. The optional cup is ideal if you want a drink that you wouldn’t want to put in your bottle.
