Milltown Races Oldham Half Marathon

Sunday 25th October 2020. This event has been cancelled.

Are you a half marathon runner looking for  your next challenge? Good news! The Oldham Half Marathon is back for it’s eighth year.

A gruelling race, this half marathon covers a 13.1 mile run through Oldham and its many miles of countryside, pushing challengers to their limits whilst offering some of the best scenery the borough has to offer. Runners will travel a hilly route that will take them to the spectacular Saddleworth area of Oldham. Breathtaking views of the Saddleworth villages and the imposing moorland landscape of the Peak District National Park await. Returning via Grasscroft, Lydgate, Lees and the Glodwick areas of Oldham this race guarantees fantastic local support from the diverse communities of Oldham. Race starts at 09:30am in the High Street area of the Oldham Town Centre. With only 600 places available, it’s important to sign up as early as possible to secure your space and get your training underway!

Entries continue to grow each year with a reputation of being one of the toughest half`s in the UK. Over 1100ft of ascent the Oldham Half is a serious proposition and represents a great challenge for all levels of runners.
