The elite runners of the world travel from city to city, from race to race and challenge to challenge. They do it for the glory, for fame and the record books.
Well, SuperHalfs is our way of sending you and other regular runners off on your own running adventure.
It’s a series of five glorious half marathons that will take you to Lisbon, Prague, Copenhagen, Cardiff and Valencia.
Not for the headlines. Not for a chance to take your place on the podium. But for the fun of running. For the thrill of travel. And for the joy of saying “I did it!”
All of the SuperHalfs events are World Athletics’ Gold Label races or are run on World Athletics (IAAF) World Championship courses. They are certified by AIMS or have been awarded a 5 Star Road Race standard by European Athletics.
What’s more, several races in the SuperHalfs group have played host to World Record performances.
SuperHalfs: Super cities of Lisbon, Prague, Copenhagen, Cardiff and Valencia launch new half marathon series
Five of the world’s leading half marathons have partnered to create the new SuperHalfs international running series.
The innovative series will bring five of the world’s most beautiful races under the same banner with the aim of promoting running, tourism and environmental sustainability in each of the member cities.
Almost 100,000 participants are set to race at five iconic locations when the inaugural series gets underway in 2020. Runners will have access to a SuperRunner experience, including guaranteed registrations, special race numbers with priority pick up, original merchandising, virtual SuperRunner Passport, a SuperMedal (after completing the series) and the chance to see their names go down in the SuperHalfs Hall of Fame.
Lisbon, Prague, Copenhagen, Cardiff and Valencia; five great cities, five world class events, selected based on their quality, popularity, location, and their sustainability policies.
SuperHalfs participants will run top races in historical cities, across unique and fast courses. All hold IAAF (World Athletics) labels and three are recent IAAF World Half Marathon Championships hosts.
The SuperHalfs hosts will offer the best experience to runners, whilst committing to improving environmental sustainability. Every event will strive to reduce their own carbon footprint with the common goal of becoming the most sustainable collection of half marathons worldwide.
