We’re sorry to say that along with a number of events, The Rotary Shakespeare Marathon has had to be cancelled due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. It’s especially frustrating if you’ve been training hard or looking forward to your fundraising event.

We’re as gutted as you are that it won’t be able to go ahead but we want you to know that we’ll still be on hand to support you through your fundraising journey, so that even during this uncertain time, your super efforts won’t go to waste.

The Rotary Shakespeare Marathon – more than a Marathon!


Whether you’re a newbie marathon runner or a more seasoned athlete looking for a personal best, The Shakespeare Marathon and Half Marathon offer runners much more than a great course, which is superbly marshalled and brilliantly organized.

This is a chance to experience world famous Stratford-upon-Avon and to run amongst some of the most historical buildings in the the country and through miles of beautiful Warwickshire countryside. You’ll enjoy a mainly flat, fast course, starting in the centre of the town, opposite Shakespeare’s old school, taking in sights such as the River Avon, Holy Trinity Church (home to the grave of William Shakespeare) and the Royal Shakespeare Theatres.

You’ll run through quintessential English villages, where chocolate box thatch roof cottages, hump back bridges and pretty dry stone walls are a joy to behold.
