Good news stories
If any runner has a specific reason for running the half marathon, is supporting a charity close to their heart or has been inspired by someone else to take part, then the Organisers would like to hear from them.
In the build up to the event the Organisers would like to share your stories with the wider community to demonstrate that taking part in The Lexicon Bracknell Half marathon is about much more than running 13.1 miles.
If you are happy for your story to be shared please contact the Organisers through the online enquiry form giving brief details. If your story is selected you will be contacted in due course.
General race information
Date and time
The event will take place on Sunday 13 May 2018.
The start time is 9am prompt.
The race village will be in:
Bond Square, near Waitrose
The start and finish will be a short distance away in The Lexicon.
This year the race will start and finish in The Lexicon and the race village will be in Bond Square, near Waitrose.
The runners will leave and re-enter the town centre via London Road. On the way out the runners will join the existing course at the Running Horse Roundabout and will then run anti-clockwise taking in approximately 11 miles of the old course. On reaching the Running Horse Roundabout for the second time, the runners will return to the town centre the same way that they came out, before finishing in the heart of The Lexicon.
The Organisers have been working on the new course including the start and finish in the heart of The Lexicon. There are a few more refinements to be made and then the course will be accurately measured. Once that has been done a map will be drawn up and published on this website. All being well this will be done before Christmas.
Due to the nature of the course, the organisers regret that wheelchair entries are not accepted for this event.
Bracknell Forest Runners have once again volunteered to provide Pacers at a variety of different paces during the event. On the day look out for the runners in fluorescent yellow t shirts with specific times on their backs. All you have to do is pick your target time and stick close to the Pacer.
There is plenty of car parking in The Lexicon which will be open on the day of the event. The Organisers are currently investigating the possibility of allocating one car park in particular for runners. Once the Organisers know more they will publish details on this website.
All participants completing the course will receive a commemorative medal.
There will be prizes for the first 3 finishers in the Mens Open, Ladies Open, Mens Veteran and Ladies Veteran Categories.
There will also be prizes for the first finishers in the Mens Veteran 50+, Mens Veteran 60+, Ladies Veteran 45+ and Ladies 55+ Categories.
Runners packs will be posted approximately 7 to 10 days before the event. Please allow a few days for your pack to arrive before contacting the office.
