The 2018 Marathon Route
The route will remain generally unchanged from 2017, with a few minor changes to be confirmed. You can check out both the Leicester Half and Leicester Full Marathon routes, complete with elevation graphs below.
In particular runners should note the split point of the full and half marathon routes (between miles 5 & 6). Full marathon runners should keep right before turning right at the roundabout towards Syston and the full marathon route, whilst half marathon runners should keep left and turn left along the top edge of Watermead Park. The split will be obvious, with marshals and signage to guide you through.
Total Ascent for The Half Marathon: 293ft / 89m
Total Ascent for The Full Marathon: 620ft / 189m
