The car park will close at 8:45 due to the road closures in place, so please plan your journey accordingly.

TRUE NORTH PRODUCTIONS are filming at the Leicestershire Half Marathon at Prestwold Hall for an MTV show.

We will be filming with both large cameras and go pros, but all our shooters will be wearing identifiable hi vis so you can identify them. We will be following one of our contributors, but appreciate that other runners will be captured in the background of the shot and therefore will potentially appear in the transmitted TV show.
