Oldham Half Marathon


Are you a half marathon runner looking for  your next challenge? Good news! The Oldham Half Marathon is back for its 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.
