Event Information/Overview

Previously known as Edgehill Half Marathon we decided to rename it after the beautiful start / finish venue, the course doesn’t in fact go up Edgehill although there are one or two inclines. We are always overwhelmed at how beautiful Compton Verney is when we are setting up and at the race. If you have never been, the beautiful house and grounds are well worth a visit.

The half marathon sets off from the front of the house and winds through the villages of Kineton, Little Kineton and Radway before returning up the “cheeky” Pittern Hill at 11.5 miles and back to finish on the lawns of Compton Verney by the lake.

The last two years have been blessed with beautiful weather, we had to make sure there was plenty of water available but it made for glorious events.

There is also a 1K Kids race that will start after the Half Marathon has finished.  You can register for this on race day.
