About this event

Join us at the seaside for this cracking 10k and half marathon event!

After an absence last year due to Covid, we're delighted to announce the return of the Clacton Half Marathon and 10k in 2021.

This will be the seventh year of this great seaside event, which continues to grow in reputation – over 800 runners joined us in 2019 - and we'll be hoping to top that this summer. This is a true seafront race, taking place along both the top and bottom promenades, with plenty of holidaymakers and day trippers to cheer you on!

The course for both races is largely flat and both are suitable for runners of all standards, from those looking to complete their first event to seasoned athletes.

Half marathon runners complete two laps of the route, with 10k runners completing a single lap. Both races start and finish on the seafront.

The event is part of Clacton Carnival Week and in addition to the half marathon and 10k races, there is a Clacton Carnival Fun Run, of around a mile which will appeal to youngsters, families and those new to running.

About the Event:

Race start times

The Half Marathon and 10k races will start promptly at 9.30am; the Fun Run will start at approximately 9.15am.

The Route

The accurately-measured courses are fairly fast and mainly flat out and back courses along the seafront. There are inclines and declines to access and leave the Lower Promenade. There will be kilometre and mile markers along the route and it will be fully marshalled; Please be courteous to any other promenade users on the course.

The courses have both been officially measured and carry a certificate of course accuracy (certificate number: 16/329).

Race Details:


The race will be chip timed.

Race Licence

This event is fully licenced by UK Athletics and held under their rules.

Age Limits

Both races are suitable for experienced runners and beginners alike. The minimum age on race day is 15 years for the 10k distance and 17 years for the Half Marathon. There are no upper or lower age limits for the Fun Run.

Race Number Information

Race numbers for the event will be posted out to you around 10 days before race day. If you enter the race within 10 days of the race you will need to collect your race number on the day from the registration desk located at Race HQ. No ID is required but please arrive in plenty of time so that the race can start promptly.


As the event is run under UK Athletics rules and as the races take place on footpaths and the traffic-free Promenade, headphones are permitted. However, we ask that you have the volume low enough to hear marshal instructions.


All race finishers will receive a bespoke medal on completion of their race.

There are prizes for the leading men and women, plus leading vet categories and teams (three to score) in both 10k and Half Marathon.

Prize giving and presentation will be approximately 45 minutes after the first finisher is home.
