Race news: Vitality North London Half Marathon - Sunday, March 15, 2015

Allianz Park will take centre stage for the brand new Vitality North London Half Marathon, where runners will be treated to a traffic-free, closed road route, coupled with a celebratory sporting stadium finish line at the home of Saracens Rugby Club, complete with thousands of cheering spectators!

The event, organised by GO2, will be taking place on Sunday 15th March 2015, where runners will experience an undulating course through the closed roads of leafy North London. The route has been designed to take in all the beautiful green surroundings of NW4, building up to a stadium finish at the home of Premiership Rugby giants, Saracens.

Jamie Warren, Head of Marketing and Commercial at GO2, said: “The London Borough of Barnet is the perfect setting for the inaugural Vitality North London Half Marathon, which is the latest race to add to our growing portfolio and will be the 6th event in our new Vitality Run Series. Linking up with a great sporting venue for the start and finish line is guaranteed to provide a very special day for both runners and spectators alike.  

“Whether you are a seasoned runner, or completing a half marathon distance for the first time, we have created a race that will appeal to everybody. The elites and experienced runners will benefit from its ideal positioning six weeks prior to the Virgin Money London Marathon, making it the perfect training event; and the stadium finish with thousands of spectators will give our first timers and fundraisers that extra surge of motivation to push them through the 13.1 mile course. 

GO2 will also be introducing the Schools’ Challenge as part of the race day activities; a 12 week programme where pupils from local schools are encouraged to run a mile a week leading up to the half marathon, with the final mile taking place on race day itself. The concept has proved to be a great success as part of other GO2 events, and is the perfect way to inspire the younger generation to take up the sport of running.
