The Stevenage Half Marathon began in 1984 and takes place annually with a full marathon every 10 years.
The event is a charity fundraiser, with volunteers from Fairlands Valley Spartans Running Club and Stevenage Scouts giving their time freely to make the event a huge success. All proceeds go to local charities, our 2022 event provided in excess of £8,300 in donations to worthy causes and we hope future Stevenage Half Marathons are just as successful.
Each year we nominate a charity to support and the chosen charity for 2024 is Pancreatic Cancer UK.
