Derby Half Marathon 2023
Also known as the Ramathon, this exciting half-marathon returned to the city of Derby in 2014. Organised by Jane Tomlinson’s ‘Run For All’ organisation, over 2,000 runners take part in the race every year. This is a great challenge for runners old and new, this massively popular event boasts a great city centre course and a truly incredible atmosphere.
- 4 June 2023
The race starts on Irongate in the City Centre. The course then takes runners through the city centre via the historic Market Place. From here, the route heads out on to London Road and Shardlow Road, through the beautiful Elvaston Castle Country Park, across Elvaston Park and past Derby County’s Pride Park football stadium. After this, the course takes people back to the city centre for the ‘Big Finish’.

Run 4 Cancer - About Us
Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

“Two weeks before the trip my PSA reading had reached 28. After our holiday my reading is now 10.8!”
“Being diagnosed with cancer was an extremely stressful time. After the chemo and radiotherapy it was a pleasure to have something to look forward to.”
“These days out for all the family to enjoy mean so much to us as we have to spend so much time apart. Thank you again for all you do in support of families like ours.”
“Thank you for making the difference to the lives of children that have had to cope with things that no one should have to go through, let alone young kids.”
“It is impossible for people not in our situation to understand just how precious the memories of such a great day can be.”
“For a week I swam and did things I never ever thought I would do again. I did not think about cancer for more than a fleeting moment the whole week.”
