Covid-19 | Keswick Half Marathon

It is with sadness that we confirm the Keswick Half Marathon will not be held on Sunday 3rd May 2020.

We are working with the relevant authorities to move it to Sunday 11th October 2020.  We will confirm this as soon as we are able.

All places can either be moved to October, refunded or as some of our participants have chosen to do – to donate their fee as this is a charity event – but they choice is most definitely yours.

Please bear with us as we finalise the details – we are working out the logistics of how we do this, that will take a bit of time.

Regards, Keswick Half Marathon Team


Keswick Half Marathon is said to be one of the most scenic half marathons in the country. The challenging course takes you around Derwentwater with an extra loop into the Newlands valley.

We raise money to operate a successful rugby program developing all age groups with good coaching and necessary equipment.
We are working towards improving our Club, not just the on-field game, but the club house and grounds. Unfortunatley the Club house and facilities regularly flood which put strains on the maintenance and up-keep. A large amount of money has been put towards pitch drainage and lighting now the Club house is in need! With plans to relocate the clubhouse above flood waters and improve our facilities we are working towards this goal.

Come and take part in this very popular annual event. The route is a circuit of Derwentwater, with a loop into the Newlands valley, probably the most scenic 13 miles 192.5 yards in the country.
