Retford Half Marathon– Sunday 10th March 2013

This came into the inbox:

The Retford Half Marathon and Fun Run is organised by East Retford Rugby Club in association with Retford Athletic Club. The 2013 event will be held on Sunday March 10th.

Held under UK Athletics Rules, this popular run attracts approximately 500 entrants each year and is a key fixture for seasoned runners from across Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and other parts of
England, as well as for others who are taking part in their first half-marathon. Many runners also use it as a warm up to the London Marathon held in April.

The course is mostly flat so it offers a good opportunity for those wanting to achieve a personal best time, and for those who just want the satisfaction of getting around the 13.1mile distance.

Entries are coming in thick and fast with over 100 entrants signing up in the last fortnight, and as an entrant to the 2012 event we’d be delighted if you could join us once again this year Whilst we expect that limited entry will be available on the day (subject to availability), we would encourage runners to sign up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Online and postal entry details for the Half Marathon (13.1m) and the Family Fun Run (approx 2miles) are below but if you have any questions please post them on the events Facebook page or email

Please note that race numbers will be available for collection from Retford Rugby Club on the morning of the event (from 7am and must be collected by 9.30am). Race numbers WILL NOT be sent out in the post prior to the event.
