    Every year, at 11am on 11 November, several thousand amateur and professional runners take part in this extraordinary race.

    A half-marathon full of history: all along the 21km or 8.5km routes the athletes run past some of the historic sites where the battles of the Great War took place.

    The Mémorial du Souvenir - Remembrance Memorial and the new First World War interpretation centre are part of the route.

    The numerous British military cemeteries also feature along the route. It's the chance to perpetuate the memories of these men who gave their lives to defend the freedom of all!

    Make the most of the Plugstreet 14-18 Experience, First World War interpretation centre which opens its doors, for free, for the occasion.
