Start List

Route Maps

For 2021 there will be a brand-new undulating mix terrain course for you to test yourself. With a new start area up near the Ice House will see you only having to tackle half of the infamous Obelix hill at the start of your new route, which will take you past the Great Barns, before heading out through Brancaster Gate for a short section outside the Estate wall, though the views are worth it as you head towards and then under the Triumphal Arch as you start you route back towards the Obelix and a fast finish down the hill to the back of Holkham Hall and finishing as always down the orange carpet.

How do I get my race pack?

We are planning on having race pack collection on the day of the events and possibly the day before, for those of you camping or close enough to come and collect. Obviously if Covid safeguards make this impossible then we will post your pack out to you. We will email you to let you know if things change

Please make sure that your details are correct. Your confirmation email will show the details that we have for you.

Can I enter multiple people/children at the same time?

Yes, you can! This year we have changed the way we built the entry system and added functionality which allows you to complete several entries to the Saturday events at the same time. We are hoping this will make it much easier to enter several people/children without having to do multiple transactions.

Are there medals?

Yes! All athletes taking part in the Holkham Run events will get a medal when they finish.

I can’t race, can I transfer my place?

Yes, you can transfer entries between athletes for Holkham 10K and the Holkham Half Marathon.

You will need to log into your Active account at and in My Events you will see the button to transfer your place. You will need to enter the email address of the person you are transferring to and they will need to accept the place using the link that they will be sent. You will then be refunded minus the £5 transfer fee. If they do not use the link before the deadline, detailed in the Terms and Conditions, then the place will remain yours and you will not be refunded.

The details of withdrawal dates are in your confirmation email or on the website at

Are there Age Group Awards?

There are awards for the winner of each age group only and the overall top 3.

Are there cut-offs?

You should be able to finish the Half Marathon in three and a half hours.

However, if you are obviously struggling and we feel that it is in your best interests then we may ask you to stop.

Do you have nutrition at these races?

Are there change facilities?
