Rotary Shakespeare Marathon and Half Marathon

The Rotary Shakespeare Marathon and Half Marathon has been an annual event in our Rotary calendar for some 30years.

It is the main fundraising event for Stratford Rotary.

Each year we have around 4000 entries including many from overseas.

The event starts in Stratford-upon-Avon town centre. The runners do one lap of the town then head out into the Warwickshire countryside, returning to the town to finish on the south side of the river at the recreation ground.

The main charity we  supported in 2016 was The Shakespeare Hospice. Other beneficiaries include The Samaritans of Stratford-upon-Avon, Lifespace, ESH Works and other charities and good causes Stratford Rotary decide to support. In addition we make donations to numerous other groups who help us on the day.

Runners can raise money through sponsorship for any charity or good cause they wish.
