Freckleton Half Marathon: The oldest half in the UK

Welcome to The Freckleton Half Marathon in the heart of the beautiful Fylde Coast

Thank you all for making the 56th event in 2021 virtual event happen it was great to keep the race going.

Results can be seen on the UK Results web site and many photos taken can be seen on our gallery page

Entries for the Virtual Freckleton Half Marathon 2022 are now open!!

Please see Link Below 

As well as being the oldest half marathon in the UK, this race is rated as one of the top races in the country. In 2011 it was rated at number 15 in the UK, above The London Marathon. If we take half marathons alone we were placed at number 8 in the UK. (Runners World, 2011).

We have put this site together to give you a flavour of the race, but please also have a look at the links to get a picture of what this beautiful area has to offer. You don't have to be a runner to enjoy the Fylde Coast.

If you have an event or attraction on the Fylde Coast please contact us and we will happily post a link to your web site.

We are committed to building on the success and long traditions of this wonderful race. Our 2-mile family fun run has now become firmly established and takes in part of the Half Marathon course and is open to everyone. It starts at 2.15 so everyone should be back well in time to see the Half Marathon runners return. Who knows, perhaps we will see a future champion in the fun run.

We are fortunate to have the services of Andy O’Sullivan MBE, BEM, to provide us with race commentary. No doubt there will be a good bit of banter from Andy, who seems to know every runner in the country!

We wish to thank to all those who have helped in a great many ways, to ensure the success of the race. In one way or another, almost 100 people give up their time to help make sure the race is a success. Too many to list here but you know who you are and what you have done. We are sure you will join us in thanking these people and organisations, without whom we have no race.

We hope this web site will persuade you to join us for what we hope will be a great day out.

Thank you

Brian Porter :  Race Director 2003 - 2010
