The Croydon Half Marathon

The Croydon Half Marathon is a long running half marathon, but sadly the 2021 race fell victim to Covid.

The race will hopefully return in the March 2022.

Once we have confirmation on the race date from Striders of Croydon, we will add further details to this page and provide a link for online entry.

Look out for announcements on our social media pages.

The Croydon Half Marathon, organised by Striders of Croydon, is an undulating, accurately measured course is perfect for those new to half marathon running or those looking for a last long run before their spring marathons.
There are prizes on offer to leading men and ladies plus a variety of age category prizes and team prizes for both male and female (3 to score). Medals and finish line goodies on offer to all finishers.

The Course
The route starts and finishes at Sandilands and follows a two lap route around the streets of Croydon. Please note there is a short initial lap followed by the two full laps so don’t be surprised if you see the finish line ahead of you after the first mile! The route has been accurately measured and carriers a certificate of course accuracy.

The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows, as well as being marshalled throughout. The route is run along the streets of Croydon and the roads will NOT be closed. On the main roads of the course you are required to run on the pavements. The race crosses a section of the Tram Link line and while we will have stewards on duty, it is your responsibility to be alert of any trams. At Oaks Road, should the red lights show you must stop.

You can view a copy of the course map here.

First Aid
St John Ambulance will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Presentations will take place approximately 45 minutes after the first finisher.

Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

There is very limited parking available for the Croydon Half Marathon, so we strongly advise runners to use public transport to get to the race.

East Croydon Railway Station is just over a mile away from Sandilands Club, so runners can access the race via bicycle or on foot. Alternatively, you can take buses 119, 194, 198 or 466 from East Croydon Station to the Ashburton Road Addiscombe stop and take a short walk to the club.

West Croydon is slightly further away from the race start, but is served by London Overground and Southern trains.

Runners can also use the Croydon tram service to Sandilands or Lloyd Park to get to the race.
