Robin Hood Half Marathon is a traffic free, single lap, 13.1 mile (21.1km) great for both seasoned runners and beginners alike. The scenic route guides you alongside Victoria Embankment and the River Trent, passing by Nottingham Castle, near the Robin Hood Statue, through the Nottingham Park Estate, and into Wollaton Park. It finishes at Victoria Embankment Recreation Ground, next to the River Trent.
