Overview

The Quicksilver Hampton Court Half Marathon scored an average 4.6/5.0 with an incredible 98 reviews this year. It is set to be back in February 2020 promising a fast, flat and iconic course for runners. Steeped in history, the race offers so much to see along the course and at same time the chance to get a PB. The event offers a closed road start which creates an incredible atmosphere along with the magnificent backdrop.

The event village is professionally run and offers bag drop, toilets, concessions, free massages and a big finish line area. The course has a half way mark as measured by the UKA and there are plenty of pacers on the course. All runners receive a medal, timed event, goody bag and technical t-shirt!

The stunning and historic course is a closed road loop taking in Hampton Court Palace along with a 3 mile stretch by the Thames, called Barge Walk, and the pretty village of Thames Ditton.

The race will begin at 08:30am at Giggs Hill Green in Thames Ditton. The best way to the start area is the park and ride service that is available or public transport as there is no official onsite car park.

Please arrive one hour before the start time and note that the race curt off time is 3 hours. You can continue running after this time frame but may not have a fully marshalled course.

Runners will set off in waves with a minute gap between each start.

Water stations will be provided  at approximately 3 mile intervals.

Professional First Aid cover will be available at the race to provide medical support if necessary.

No dogs, accompanying vehicles or cycles are allowed on the course (with the exception of the organisers lead and tail bikes).  We regret the course is not suitable for wheelchairs, prams or pushchairs. The course will be marked at each mile.

Pre-race day

Runners will receive the timing chip a few weeks prior to the event and should be attached to your shoe on race day. It will come with full instructions.

Race numbers will also be posted in advance and all information should be completed on the back of the number to support any medical emergency.

What previous runners have said:

“I will be coming back again! The race was very well organised, no problems at all! Baggage was not a long queue, there were clear signs and helpful marshals for directions, and a flat course for PBs. On and of course, what’s better than high-fiving the Royal Henry VII by Hampton Court Palace? It was a fun race, and I would highly recommend it!”

My first organised run, terrified I'd do something wrong but very simple and enjoyable. Shocked at the number of plastic thrown away at water stations, unavoidable I suppose. Subsequently I have done the Victoria Park half and am looking to do more. Great medal.
