Appleby Half Marathon Race Route Map

May 15, 2015

The upcoming Appleby Bermuda Day Half Marathon will see a change in the route used in the past, with the race to begin in the east after 37 years of starting in the west.

The new route, which has been officially measured and certified as a half marathon, will journey out of St. George’s, along North Shore Road, up Middle Road/Flatt’s Hill, down Lane Hill onto Front Street and into Hamilton along the standard city route, finishing at the traditional finish line in Bernard’s Park.

Outlining the full route, a spokesperson said, “The race starts at the junction of Duke of York Street and Old Maid’s Lane, St. George’s. Runners may use the entire road from the start to the Town of St. George’s sign. From this point participants must run on the left side of the road including following the normal traffic flow at all roundabouts until Lane Hill in Hamilton.”

Tyler Butterfield greets people at the finishing line on his way to winning last year’s race:

  1. An annual change in the route, i.e. Somerset and St. George’s for the “Bermuda Day Half Marathon” will certainly be a pleasure…

  2. Jus' Askin' says:

    My only question is how do people get into town if all the roads are closed? Will there be points at which traffic can cross the race course? Unlike the west end course, where you can go through Devonshire & get to North Shore, except for Pembroke, North Devonshire & a small part of Smith’s, there will be no access to Hamilton after 0830 until about 1130/1200 if the road restrictions are the same as they have been in the past.
