Kit List

For safety reasons, it is suggested that you run without music so you can stay alert and aware of your surroundings and other runners. This way you can also soak up the energy and atmosphere and unplug!

There are numerous places along the route where you can watch the runners go by. There is also plenty of safe, traffic-free space alongside the river Thames for children to run around at the start/finish.

Meet the organiser

The Race Organiser creates outstanding opportunities for people to bring out their best run, swim or cycle performance. We seek out the most inspiring and rewarding locations, develop race routes and event formats, and create a brilliant atmosphere and race day experience – offered at the best possible value. We don’t think it’s ok to ask people who are aspiring to do amazing things to pay huge sums of money, so we charge as little as we can afford, rather than as much as we can get away with.
