The Royal Windsor Half Marathon River Trail Run creates the perfect opportunity to experience the historically picturesque Thames Valley. With an idyllic start and finish at the foot of Windsor Castle, a royal home and fortress for over 900 years, the entirely flat river route guides you upstream to Maidenhead before heading back towards Windsor. Mainly run along river trail paths, the course incorporates many of the key landmarks that have made Royal Berkshire and its surrounding area so famous. It is an absolute must for anyone looking for a break from the pavement grind and a change of scenery. Limited to 1500 participants, start your summer, and enjoy the best of Windsor, Boveney Lock, Bray, Dorney, Maidenhead and Eton. The event is not designed to be a gruelling cross country through deep mud and puddles, but aims to be a fun, friendly and fast trail run along one of England's most historic courses. We hope that our onsite facilities, commentary and music provide plenty to keep other halves and little ones entertained, ensuring a day out for all the family while you run. Our waved-start format creates a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, limiting any participant congestion along the route. As this is a trail run – it does not have a certified distance, but is still accurately measured the same as all of our other events. The official cut off time to complete the Half Marathon event is 3 hours 30 minutes, making the event achievable, even if you decide to mix walking with jogging along the course. There is a minimum participant age of 17 for this event. For participant health and safety, we also ask that there are no prams or dogs taken out on the course.

I have ran this race before 2 years ago, but when I did I don't think I paid attention to my watch and just ran and took in the surroundings. This really is a beautiful course along the Thames river, mostly on trails, but a real introduction to trail running with flat and compac...Read full review
