Elysium Healthcare Great West Run

With over 4,000 runners expected to take to the streets of the city in 2023, Exeter’s Great West Run has been challenging runners as far back as 1985.

As one of the oldest Half Marathons in the UK, the event has gone from strength to strength under WMP’s ownership – with new 10K and Community Mile events added in 2022, with a view to encouraging more runners to take part in the event.

With a route that takes in the country roads around Exeter, as well as the bustling City Centre and lively University Campus, The Great West Run offers a challenging course for both new and more experienced runners. Building on a successful event delivery in 2022, WMP have already made steps to deliver another best-in-class experience for runners, sponsors and charity partners in 2023.

Alongside a number of charity partners, as well as title sponsor Elysium Healthcare, WMP aim to continue developing and growing one of the largest fundraising events in the South West.
