Doynton Hard Half Marathon

Sunday, January 22, 2017 - 09:00

Following the success of The Doynton Hard Half Marathon in January 2016, the race organisers at Emersons Green Running Club are delighted to announce that entries for DHHM2017 open on 1st September via the FullOnSport web site at

We’ve made a few small changes to the race this year including a new river crossing and much improved jelly baby management and the race remains a tough, picturesque, hilly, and more than likely very muddy cross country Half Marathon (give or take a few metres, or yards if you prefer) in and around the village of Doynton and the surrounding Cotswolds countryside.

The race web site ( contains plenty of race details and the Facebook page ( receives regular updates about the race and the occasional picture of our most recent route recce.

There are several prize categories up for grabs including a club prize and we hope you and/or some of your club members can come along and join us on 22nd January 2017.

Kind regards, and happy cross-country running.
