Course Details

The event village is now within a 10 minutes walk to Egham rail station, allowing runners to travel to the event on direct lines from London and enjoy what the rural Surrey countryside has to offer for half marathon running! Other than this shift, the course will remain unchanged compared to previous years allowing runners to tackle their personal bests on a super quick route previously ran by two Olympians.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Bag drop queue was very long. It's very windy at the start. Hilly course. Didn't like the motorway flyover bits but the rest of the course was quite scenic.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Smashed my PB by 90 seconds. Freezing, temperatures though.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Well organised race. Good, easy parking and an interesting, varied route with plenty of marshals. Closed roads to traffic were particularly welcome. Hope to run again next year!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Well organised, good location (easy parking) and good amenities. I liked the course, neither to flat or too hilly.

    On the whole I though it was a thoroughly enjoyable event. Well organised, plenty of water on the route and some lovely treats at the end to build the muscles back up.

    I run loads of Runthrough events and this one was their typically excellent of the standard of comms before the event, organisation / registration during.Interesting route, and nice to do some closed road routes rather than parks.
