Severn Bridge Half Marathon 2017
27 August 2017
The Severn Bridge 10k and Half Marathon start on the Western (Chepstow) end of the M48 and cross the closed Severn Bridge. The 10k and Half Marathon start in different places and different times but both end at the same finish point in the event village.
Both events suit first timers and experienced club runners alike, and provide something a bit different from your average half marathon or 10k: stunning views, sea air, scenic country lanes and villages and the opportunity to participate in a unique running event on a closed motorway and across the iconic Severn Bridge. Full course details can be found Course details.
Both the 10k and Half Marathon will be run under ARC rules (Permit applied for).
The courses have been measured and certified as accurate by an accredited course measurer.
There is easy access to the race event base (used for both events) and car park from junction 2 of the M48. There is ample parking within a couple of minutes walk of the changing area, baggage store and start. Train and bus stations are situated in Chepstow, a short distance from the event village.
