The astonishing 2012 discovery and 2013 identification of the remains of King Richard III in a Leicester car park sparked a flurry of developments, including a spiffing visitor centre on the site, and the restoration of the cathedral, where the king was reburied in 2015. And sporting history was made in 2016, when Leicester City Football Club won the Premier League against 5000:1 odds at the beginning of the season, having never won a top division championship in the club’s 132-year existence.
With that being said, the Leicester Marathon is the place to be!!
The Leicester Marathon is popular and ever-growing race. There is also a Leicester Half Marathon.
