SEV­ERN BRIDGE HALF MARATHON

You’ll cross the River Wye – the bor­der be­tween Eng­land and Wales – not once but twice dur­ing this race. You start from Chep­stow and run over the iconic bridge to en­joy a spell trot­ting around the bu­colic en­vi­rons of Lit­tle­upon-sev­ern and King­ton in Glouces­ter­shire be­fore re­trac­ing your steps.

This race has be­come a favourite among both English and Scot­tish run­ners. The route tends to run from Gretna to Carlisle, al­though the or­gan­is­ers oc­ca­sion­ally re­verse it (as is the case with the next one). It’s as pop­u­lar among the fun-run­ning fra­ter­nity as it is with club run­ners. Scot­land, Jan 27, 2019 x-bor­der10k.co.uk

DUNE HALF MARATHON

Be­gin­ning in Newry, North­ern Ire­land, and fin­ish­ing in Dun­dalk, Repub­lic of Ire­land, this 13.1-miler at­tracts run­ners from both sides of the bor­der. The fairly flat course lends it­self to some fast times, too, with this year’s win­ner fin­ish­ing in 1:14:56.
