Stratford Rotary’s Shakespeare Marathon and Half Marathon is taking place on the 7th of May 2017, and is now open for entries at www.shakespearemarathon.org.uk.
Runners will enjoy a mainly flat course which starts in the centre of the town, and they will run through pretty Warwickshire villages, including Welford upon Avon and Long Marston, taking in sights such as the River Avon, the Greenway - Stratford’s disused railway path, and the Royal Shakespeare Theatres.
The Shakespeare Marathon is now its 36th year and it has an excellent reputation and many loyal runners who enter year after year. It‘s well known for its superb marshalling and outstanding safety record.
The Shakespeare Marathon has been awarded the Barr Gold standard, reflecting the high standards achieved in every aspect of its organisation. As some elements of the event are sponsored and it is organised and marshalled solely by volunteers, an absolute minimum is spent on administration and facilities. Money raised from the event goes to local charities, including the Shakespeare Hospice.

Our Family Support Services include Children and Family Support Service, Bereavement Support, Counselling, Chaplaincy and Social Work Service.
