Organizer's website

The Royal Windsor 10km 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 course guides you along the River following the scenic trails with some fantastic views of the surrounding areas.

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.

Course Details

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.

The route follows a scenic trail path along the River Thames heading towards Maidenhead.

Drinks Stations will be located at KM 3.5 & 7.5 where participants can pick up some energy & quench their thirst.

    Excellent course and great organisation.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    The event was well organised and briefed, although I would question the bag drop-off fee given the cost of the event. We have not received the results of our run, which is always nice to get on the same day as the event. The course is level and not too challenging, ut there is not that much of it actually going along the river, and the name of the event does suggest otherwise. Some of the marshals were great and very encouraging but I would like to encourage the younger Marshalls to join in with this spirit too as the runners really get spurred on by such encouragement rather than just being pointed in the right direction (with a glum face). The atmosphere at the end was great.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Please please check this course for 10k route this year. 2018 it was 7.1 miles and this at the time being my second ever 10k run I found really disheartening.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    The course was uninspiring (perhaps the best route was reserved for the 1/2) and poorly planned with the entire 10k field being slowed to a walking pace when trying to squeeze on to the tow path at the start and once or twice later on. Despite the walking and two boring laps of a field, chasing a 10k PB was still on until my GPS watch showed I had hit 10k and was still on the opposite side of the river to the finish. Would not waste money running this 11.6k event again.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    I was very disappointed to find out it was a 5km course run twice. This was not mentioned before booking. There were not any km markers and the race was actually almost 12km not 10km.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    I wish i had known that the course was going to be 1.6k longer than expected! Pretty disappointed that the route was incorrectly measured and not marked along the way and that this was not acknowledged afterwards to those that had taken part.
  • Did the event in 2018

    There was no distance markers around the course, bag drop off was 5, no event parking, this was 35 event and ive been on cheaper events with better facilities, atmosphere and organisation.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    I was sent conflicting information pre-race about start times and registration. Emailed to query this and no response.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    It was a bit boring to start with there was no music or warm up
  • Did the event in 2015

    Hi,The race was very well organised and had friendly volunteers, the day was very hot and unfortunately I did not finish as I collapsed at mile 11, three ladies stopped, waited with me until I was well enough to walk to the next drinks station where a very helpful volunteer took me to the start. I would like to sincerely thank the ladies as they gave their time (and water) graciously.Kathy Sellick
