Course highlights
The Great Northampton Run starts at the entrance to the historic Northampton town market square. To your left as you cross the start line look out for the Edwin Lutyens-designed war memorial. Turning down the hill you will pass the impressive All Saints Church. A little further along look out for Carlsberg Brewery. (They’ve been brewing in town for 50 years!) (If Carlsberg did half marathons!!!) Following along the River Nene towards Sixfields Reservoir and heading up towards Sixfields Stadium where Northampton Town have been playing since 1897. Continuing along into Franklin’s Gardens, the home of Northampton Saints Rugby for the last 140 years. Running down the closed Spencer Bridge Road and over the railway you won’t be able to miss the Northampton International Academy as it gleams in your eye line! Many of our local runners will recognise the next section as The Racecourse is home of Northampton parkrun each Saturday morning. After a lap of the park you will pass the Central Mosque on your right before turning to run alongside the Northants County Cricket Ground. You will enter Abington Park next, where you will run around the large lake before heading out for a lovely downhill section. Taking the footbridge over the A45 and under the main road structure you will find yourselves at the White Water Centre on the River Nene. From here, you will head past floating restaurant The Arc, and over the bridge into the University of Northampton Waterside campus. Later leaving the University campus via Beckets Bridge – an innovative designed 180 metre footbridge. Within the final miles you will pass Northampton Museum, The Royal and Derngate theatre and the historic Guildhall. Turn at The Mackintosh House (78 Derngate), famous for its art deco architecture and then enjoy a long straight downhill to the finish by the Market Square.
