This year’s English Half Marathon takes place again in Warrington on September 21. And the 2014 version, sponsored by New Balance, promises to be bigger and better than before. As well as the half marathon, which starts at 9am, there will be a Live Wire mile challenge, at 12.45pm, and a 10k – taking in some of the route over the Cantilever Bridge. We will be publishing all the news in the run up to the race, and all the reaction afterwards. Residents are being made aware of road closures in the area which will be in place from 5am until 2pm.
