Welcome to the website of the Roding Valley Half Marathon.  The date of the 2019 Race has been set as Sunday 3rd March.

Now in its 39th year, the Roding Valley Half Marathon continues to be a very popular race.  Many runners use it as a warm up for the London Marathon.  We pride ourselves on the positive feedback we always receive from both experienced runners and novices.  In particular we receive praise for the efficiency of the organisation and the friendliness and encouragement given by our marshals (all drawn from the ranks of our current and former runners).

The race will be chip timed for instant results.  All finishers will receive a medal and a goodie bag.  In addition to prizes for men, women and veteran categories there are spot prizes tobe won.

This year we are proud to be partnering with the Mayor of Redbidge's Appeal Charity - ELHAP ("Every Life Has A Purpose").  ELHAP supports over 600 local children with autism and learning difficulties.  They would be delighted if anyone would like to raise sponsorship for them.  For more details please visit the "Charity Partner" page of this website or their website at

For more information, please browse the site via the buttons to the left.  This includes a comprehensive information page.

Online entries are now live.  We have aimed to keep our entry fees competitive and good value for money.  Although there appears to be a small increase from last year, we have absorbed the card processing and "entry management" fees.

As always we would like to thank our long-term sponsors Haslers for their continued support.
