What you need to know

By Sam Browne, Co-founder

Great yardstick for the beginning of the summer. Flat & fast course over 2 laps of the reservoir, definite PB territory. A mixed ability half marathon and exceptionally good value at £15.

From the organiser: Draycote Water is set in the heart of Warwickshire and is an ideal place for any run. The Half Marathon is perfect for a PB, the route is slightly undulating and if we have no wind, expect some fast times.

Run this gloriously scenic, flat, multi-terrain, point-to-point half marathon along the Thames towpath. Mainly traffic free.

Run in reverse directions each year; this year it is "Up Flow" therefore starting in Windsor and finishing in Marlow, taking in Bourne End, Cookham & Maidenhead along the way.

As this is a point-to-point race, you can park at the finish in Windsor and take the coach provided to the start - once you've finished the race your car will be there waiting for you! Spectator friendly route and finish area with refreshments, so bring the family!
