Longleat Half Marathon event information
The 13.1 mile route around the ground of Longleat is mainly on
tarmac roadways, with some hard packed paths included. Be prepared
for tough hills and challenging ascents as you make your way to the
finish line. Check out
photos from last year's event
"Challenging and picturesque half marathon in beautiful
countryside location, better than a boring town route!"
"Pain is temporary, pride lasts forever! The hills were a good
challenge and the downhill run at the end makes it all worthwhile.
Simply stunning views."

that saves lives. In 1961 the number of children born with a heart
defect who survived to their first birthday was around only 20 per
cent. Today that figure is 80 per cent, thanks to procedures such
as valve replacement that help them lead improved lives.
For all our success, there's a lot still to be done. Coronary
heart disease is still the UK's single biggest killer. Surgery
techniques can still be improved. And there are exciting
developments in genetics and stem cell technology.
