Quicksilver Hampton Court Half Marathon route

The course is very flat and runs on pavement, shared pedestrian/cycle track, riverside way, and tarmac paths through parks.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great race, really flat so good course to get a personal best, really enjoyed the fact they had goal time runners that you could follow, first time experiencing that at a race, really helped achieve new PB!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Good , well-organised local event always happy to participate. Plenty of marshals to show directions
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A really well organised event well marshalled by enthusiastic volunteers. Race camp had good stalls and organisation with a nice atmosphere. Plenty of pace makers and well organised start waves. A fast flat course means pbs are up for grabs. Nice goody bag. Great value for money. Will be back for this event in future.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A well organised and interesting half marathon mostly following the Thames. Well supported in parts.Half marathon number 65 for me :-)
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Fantastic half marathon. very well organised with a scenic flat course. very enjoyable and highly recommended.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    The first two miles were very crowded on a path along a main road. A superb flat route and organisation was brilliant. An enjoyable event.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Very flat course and well marshalled so is definitely very quick and easy to navigate. Changing facilities and bag drop are on the green which can be muddy this time of year so might be worth bringing a second pair of shoes to avoid your race shoes gathering too much mud. Overall a fantastic race
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2015

    Great course- flat and scenic
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Bearing in mind , it was my first half marathon everything was simple and straightforward. Even the weather was lovely.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Really enjoyed this well organised race. The route is cleverly planned to keep away from traffic even when crossing Kingston Bridge and with lots of water points there was no need to carry a bottle. Start and finish were both really efficient with a good crowd to cheer all along the route to keep us going. Somehow the organisers even managed to provide the perfect weather :) .Will definitely be attempting this again.
