Scenic highlights include the Queen Elizabeth statue, JFK Memorial, Magna Carta landmark, Old Windsor and the turnaround at the Old Windsor Lock.

Good organiser and friendly and super helpful Marshalls on the route. Stress free start and a lovely and fast route. Great food and drinks selection; with both sweet and savoury snacks! Will look out for the same organiser for future events.

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
I greatly enjoyed this community race. Only a few participants are allowed given the narrow paths. Thus, I felt lucky to have been part of this event. Everyone was very friendly. I loved having showers to freshen up afterwards. The area is beautiful, but one must pay attention to the paths since there might be mud, rocks, and roots along the way.
