Bracknell Half Marathon

Bracknell Forest Lions marshall the half marathon every year. We always have a brilliant time- rain or shine (and we've had both!). It's wonderful to see so many committed runners and we always get such positive feedback.

Every year Bracknell Lions assist Bracknell Forest Council by marshalling the Bracknell Half Marathon. A huge number of marshalls are required to man the 13 mile route around the borough. It's great fun as there's always a fantastic atmosphere at the run, and it helps raise money for charity.

We've had all kinds of weather over the years- from rain, to heatwaves. Despite this, we thoroughly enjoy the marshalling, and it's an excellently organised run. The feedback from the runners was lovely, and some can be found here on the Runners World website.
