Compton Verney Half Marathon

Previously known as Edgehill Half Marathon we decided to rename it after the beautiful start / finish venue, the course doesn’t in fact go up Edgehill. We are always overwhelmed at how beautiful Compton Verney is when we are setting up. If you have never been, the beautiful house and grounds are well worth a visit.

The half marathon sets off from the front of the house and winds through the villages of Kineton, Little Kineton and Radway before returning up the β€œcheeky” Pittern Hill at 11.5 miles and back to finish on the lawns of Compton Verney by the lake.

It was very warm ! They bought the start time forward by an 90 minutes to help. Superb organisation and so many water stations I lost count ….and a tip top at about 8 miles … heaven
