Back To The Future For 2012 Waterside Half Marathon.......New Course For 9th September Classic
Download our full listing of half marathon run results below:
Sunday 9th September is the date for the 2012 Waterside Half Marathon. The 32nd staging of the 13.1 mile run will once again start and finish in the spacious Gransha Park grounds, courtesy of the Western Health and Social Care Trust, but the overall course this year has been significantly changed as the Waterside returns to its chequered past.
From its inception back in 1981 until 2005, the event was staged from St Columbs Park on an out and back course along the Limavady Road/ Clooney Road. This year however there's a touch of "back to the future" as the Waterside course abandons the trek to Strathfoyle, most of the Maydown Industrial Estate and the Invista circuit, to pick up a significant swathe of the traditional route on the old Clooney Road to the City of Derry Airport junction.
Full details of the exciting new course will be revealed shortly and runners of all abilities should immediately note in their diaries the date and time of the 2012 Waterside Half Marathon:
Date: SUNDAY 9th SEPTEMBER 2012
Time: 10 30am START
Location: Gransha Park, Clooney Road, Derry/ Londonderry.
10 Mile Challange Walk
Lets not forget the supporting event, the 10 MILE CHALLANGE WALK
, which attracted huge numbers when introduced last year.
The Walk will have a 10am START.....from Gransha, following the Half Marathon route before turning, close to the White Horse Hotel for the return trip.
3 Person Team Relay
The Half Marathon 3 PERSON TEAM RELAY
format, allowing participation in bite size chunks, is back again, with the White Horse landmark set to serve as the central changeover point for the relay runners.
Family 2k Fun Run
Finally the ever popular FAMILY 2K FUN RUN
will keep the spectators at Gransha fully occupied as the Half Marathon and Walk participants do their stuff out on the road. The 2K Run at 10 45am and the associated Fun Activities between 10 30am and 1pm should keep the Gransha grounds bouncing until the leading Half Marathon runners start arriving back for the finish around 11 35am.
We expect to officialy launch this years event next month with Training Schedules and our Waterside Half Blog so keep checking our website for updates and news.
Looking forward to welcoming you all once again to the wonderfull world of the Waterside Half Marathon.
