This was poorly organised no direction of what was going on. Say it was time chipped find that hard to believe as there was no chip monitor at start line or around the course for spilts. Atmosphere on the course was pretty poor. Wouldn’t do it again. … read more

Did the Sprint Duathlon in 2019
Whilst the course was flat, it was monotonous due to the short repetitive laps. There were very few participants and very few spectators, resulting in a lack of atmosphere.<br />The event was poorly organised, with very little actually set up in time for competitors arrival. For example, when we arrive (after the stated arrival time), we were sent around in a circle and back to the entrance instead of being directed to the car park (because the marshalls had forgotten to remove/change signage). When I pointed this out to the marshall directing parking traffic, I received an aggressive response. <br />Finally, the goody bag was seriously lacking.<br />Note I have participated in literally hundreds of events and this has to be the worst I've done, largely due to the organisation.… read more

Route description
Route description

Set at the spectacular, flat Dorney Lake near Windsor, this event takes you around the perimeter of this iconic water.

The legendary Eton Dorney, as Dorney Lake was called by London 2012, held 30 events throughout the Olympics, with Team GB taking a total of 12 medals. Soak up the atmosphere and invoke their heroics to inspire you to a new PB!

The Dorney Lake course is nestled amongst 450 acres of glorious parkland which includes an Arboretum and Nature Conservation area whilst being just a few miles from Windsor and a short drive from Heathrow airport and west London.

Did the race in 2018
This was the best Saturday of October! I attended this race with friends and it was my second 10k that I have taken part in. The setting was just perfect. The atmosphere was joyful and the race organisers and marshals were friendly and helpful. This location is a new favoured race spot for me and so I will be back for more very soon!
