2 Minute Silence
This is not an event with a 2 minute silence put in it - this is a 2 minute silence with an entire marathon & half marathon event built around it. It is the very heart and soul of this event and the reason it exists. It is a very moving, spine tingling experience to be part of and in past years members of the public, walkers, cyclists and even rowers on the river have put their oars up and joined in.

Did the race in 2022
The lack of supporters was a real problem for me. It wasn't really an easy PB course because of it. It was more a relaxed, friendly course. The chocolate cake at the end was worth it though! Delicious

Really friendly group atmosphere. It seems like so many people do a lot of these events and know each other. Very friendly and very cheery atmosphere. Great aid stations, full of treats and gooodies (both sweet and savoury).Big fan of the rock up and go start option too, allows a lot more flexibility.As for the medal…WOW! Never seen anything like it, it’s massive.
