How far is a half marathon?
A half marathon is 13.1 miles or about 21km.
With some training and preparation a half marathon is an achievable distance. You'll have a great time as you walk the Shine half marathon, especially as you explore London at night.
Take a look at our 2013 training plans and tips to get you started.
The distance of the Shine half marathon is about the same as...
- Walking from Enfield to Knightsbridge
- Walking 26 laps around Bluewater Shopping Centre
- Walking from Coventry to Rugby
- Walking three times around the Fritham Walk at New Forest National Park
How long will it take?
Shine is not competitive, so you can walk at your own pace. Walking a half marathon will take you on average four hours, but we encourage you to enjoy the evening and take your time to walk and raise money for the fight against cancer.
Increase your challenge and double the distance to a full marathon. Find out how far a full marathon is.
