Welcome to the Sublime Peterborough Marathon

The Enervit Peterborough Marathon is an exciting, beautiful & scenic course around the city of Peterborough, including the embankment with the stunning Cathedral backdrop, Nene Park, and the delightful cycle path along the River Nene.

With Race HQ, Supporter’s Lounge and the After-Party all being hosted by the luxury Marriott Hotel, this is a marathon experience like no other.


Enervit carbohydrate gels will be available at each of the ten water stations on course. For more details visit Envervit

Along with so many other event organisers we have been monitoring the situation closely over the past few weeks and we have been implementing some robust plans to cater for many eventualities.

We have tried our very best to ensure that our event could go ahead, despite there not being a ban in place that currently impacts on the Enervit Peterborough Marathon, we envisage one may come soon.

However, this is not the reason that we are postponing our event until later in the year. The reason is much more personal than that. The Government may set a ban on gatherings of over a thousand people, in which case we would technically be allowed to continue. We had increased our medical provision to ensure that we would have been totally self-sufficient and propose no risk of increased demand to the NHS.

But the one thing we could not be sure of is that we would not be responsible for bringing the virus to one of our runners, volunteers or team. We will all be going home to our loved ones and in some cases they may be at a higher risk than us marathoners.

So, it is for this reason that Sublime Racing has taken the very tough decision to postpone until later in the year.

At Sublime Racing we are all runners and most of us are seasoned passionate marathoners. We understand the months of training and the commitment that has gone into the preparation and we know how disappointing this will be.

There are 30 people on our Crew that each give their time and commitment for the love of bringing wonderful races to you, plus hundreds of volunteer Race Makers. I don’t want to put them or their families at risk and the same applies to all our runners and their families.

The planning and contingencies that have been prepared over the recent weeks to bring you a marathon have been incredible but none of this is visible to the outside world.

The decision to postpone is very hard for my team and crew as well as you, the runners.

We will issue a further update over the next couple of weeks regarding the next steps.


We are continuously reviewing the latest guidance to ensure that the event is safe to run and will inform you of any changes. We are suspending further entry bookings to the Enervit Peterborough Marathon pending clarification of the overnight reports. We will be updating this page and our Facebook page with any updates as soon as they arise.


Should you feel unwell please do not attend any event, please seek medical attention and follow the advice here

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind runners of the importance of good personal hygiene including hand washing (For a minimum of 20 seconds) and use of hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizer will be available for use at registration as well as within the portable loos. Our professional Medical Team will continue to review the status of the Coronavirus outbreak and the relevant guidance from government agencies and we will issue updates via our social media of any changes.




We would like to thank our very special volunteers that we affectionately call Race Makers.
Without you guys, we could not deliver the wonderful supportive events that we have become famous for.

Kidney disease is a growing global problem and right here in the UK over 3 million people are affected by kidney disease, 1 in 10 of us will be affected by chronic kidney disease. The effects of kidney disease are devastating, it has a physical, emotional, mental and financial impact upon those living with the disease, their families and friends and society at large.


Currently, if diagnosed with kidney disease there are two available treatments, dialysis or transplant. Dialysis has been referred to as life support without life as you will spend 3-6 hours per day, 3-6 days per week connected to a dialysis machine. Transplant, if successful, will on average last 10-15 years.

The stark matter of fact is that there are currently no preventative or disease modifying therapies and there is no cure for kidney disease. We want to help Kidney Research UK eradicate kidney disease globally so that we can free people’s lives from the restrictions, fear and life limiting nature of this disease.
