Entries for the 2015 Ikano Robin Hood Marathon, Half Marathon and Mini Marathon are now open and organisers have placed a price freeze on registration. This means prospective participants can register - for one month only - for the same price as last year’s event.
The 2014 edition saw more than 11,000 runners compete across all three disciplines. Kenyan athletes Matthew Kimutai and Gladys Kwambai headed the half marathon field, with the former securing victory in 1:04:21, more than three minutes ahead of second placed Alastair Watson (1:07:21). Kwambai's victory was similarly comfortable, with the Kenyan athlete (1:14:22) around seven minutes ahead of runner-up Emma Schuck (1:21:21).
The marathon, which followed a similar route as the half until mile 11, saw an upturn in entries with almost 1,500 runners taking part. Pere Capdevila crossed the line first in 2:28:33, with Kay Walsha securing first position in the women's field in a time of 2:58:07.
Organisers have revealed that this year’s race, scheduled for Sunday 27 September, will follow a slightly different route. The race village, plus the start and finish area next to the River Trent on Victoria Embankment, will all be retained, but the revised course takes in more of the city’s iconic landmarks as well as some of the most picturesque and stunning parkland.
