Half marathons are a very popular choice of distance for many runners. They feel pretty special, running 13.1 miles is more than many people can do, but they don't take the same comittment as full marathons. There are many events around the country, one of my favourites being The Shell Four villages half marathon in Helsby. It is a very picturesque route around the local villages (hence the name). It gets booked up very early and takes place in January, well worth a trip out to burn off your Christmas indulgences. This post gives some advice on how to train for a half marathon in such a way that you can get the best out of yourself without injury.
