The Barns Green Half Marathon, near Horsham, West Sussex, is run on closed roads through the beautiful Sussex countryside, passing through the historic Christ’s Hospital school, where the school’s famous marching band will be playing. We also have a jazz band at the start/finish. Along the route there are water stations, distance markers, marshals and of course the support of all the locals and spectators. We provide a medal and goody bag for each finisher, secure baggage storage and free parking.
Fancy dress is welcomed we offer the following prizes 1st - £50, 2nd - £30, 3rd - £20.
£250 cash prize for beating the present course record of 1 hour, 4 minutes and 28 seconds. Prizes are awarded to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th open male and female and also 1st and 2nd male and female in the veteran 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and 60+ 60-64, 65-69, 70+ categories. There is also a prize for male and female club teams, 3 to score, based on cumulative time.
All proceeds from the race are donated back to the local community.
