    Great race, big problems with baggage pick up - had to wait over an hour, got very cold. Otherwise would have given it five stars.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Nice course and atmosphere only issue was the post race collection of bags which took well over an hour. In fact almost as long as running the race!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Took over hour and a half to collect bag from bag drop
    Organisation was pretty poor
    Nit enough water stations on course due to being a hot day and only cups that were not even filled

    This was an excellent first half marathon for me, everyone was so lovely and supportive and helpful. Came away with a great feeling!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    On the positive side, if you are looking for a fast flat course for a first half or a PB attempt this is perfect. However, it is two laps, which is not to everyone's taste and not very scenic, a shame given that Maidenhead is on the river Thames. Organisation is generally good, although there were major problems with the bag drop this year. Water stations are also not as efficient as they should be.

    On the whole well organised, bag collection could have been better logistically thought out. Parking good , number collection quick and run , water stations all good

    This is a fast course with PB potential. It is well organised, with a handy bag drop and somewhere to hang out inside pre-race. The course itself is two loops but gives a decent balance of town and countryside. It's well supported in the town.
