Course Details

Passing over the M25 motorway and taking in the tranquility of the country lanes, this fast Half Marathon route offers a perfect chance for a chip timed, personal best with full road closures during the event.

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.
