Registration covers the full Leicester marathon (26.2 miles) the Leicester ½ marathon (13.1 miles) plus the Cummins Solicitors Relay Race options.
Please note that unlike on some previous marathon days RACE ENTRIES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ON THE DAY. This is to help ensure that there will be enough t-shirts, medals and volunteers on standby to make you have the best race day experience possible.
It does mean that you need to register in advance. We’d suggest that now is the best time to register so that you can be certain that you have secured your place and can concentrate on training in the run up to the event on Sunday 15th October!
What’s more, we are offering a special discount for early registrations.
Register between now until 30th June and you pay just £28 (affiliated to a running club) or £30 if you are unaffiliated.
Register between 1st July until 10th Oct and it will cost you £33 (affiliated) or £35 (unaffiliated)
Register between 10th Oct – 13th (spaces permitting) and it will cost £50 (affiliated) or £52 (unaffiliated)
Please note that being registered for a local Park Run does not count as an affiliated running club.

We are hoping to make the 2017 Leicester Marathon the biggest and best event ever. We have listened to feedback from previous events and our aim is to make the process simple and smooth as possible.
If you register in advance but can no longer run (due to injury or other circumstances) you can transfer your place to a friend or colleague until 10th October. Details of how you can do this will appear on this website nearer the time.
If you are running the event you can expect your race pack including numbers between the week commencing 5th September until 10th October. After this date you can pick up your pick up your pack on the Saturday 14th or the Sunday (race day)
Running a marathon is a great way to test your physical and emotional strength. It is also a great way to raise money for a local or national charity. Over the year LOROS Hospice has been one of the main charities that people have run in aid of the Leicester Marathon. If you are running this year do consider running for a charity or cause that you believe in. It will be appreciated by the organisation and also help you with extra motivation to keep going when things are difficult in training or on race day.
Good luck and do tell your friends that they can save almost 50% by registering early for the event.
