What’s Included

New Prizes & Trophies -
This year after listening to runners feedback we are pleased to introduce new age categories and prizes/trophies for Run Wexham 2019. Along with every runner receiving a fantastic medal, all 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place male and female winners in both the 10k and 5k races will receive a trophy as well as a voucher from a local running shop. In addition we have introduced a trophy and voucher from a local running shop to 1st place finishers for both male and female in age categories V40, V45, V50, V55 and V60 in the 10k race and 5k race. Trophies will also be presented to the 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place finishers for the 1K fun run.

Course Details

Is the course/route wheelchair accessible?

The answer is yes, however this would be weather dependent, because in heavy rain we think it would be hard to push a standard wheelchair. We would ask that the competitor take the usual caution when in a group of runners to take care of others in their surroundings.

    This event is the ideal milestone for my personal training from Easter through to the Windsor Half Marathon on the last Sunday of September. The community organisation I am a member of, the Community Leadership Foundation, intends to encourage participation in both these events year on year through its CLF Huddle initiative which aims to nurture a culture of salubrious living within the local community by encouraging spectatorship, facilitating opportunities and boosting participation. Run Wexham and Windsor Half Marathon are two excellent examples of local opportunities which provide a safe family-friendly environment within scenic settings and excellent event management.

    This is the second year we have participated in Run Wexham and we intend to continue doing so, while Wexham Park Hospital is a worthy cause we can all be proud of supporting.

    This year some of our children also participated in the fun run and also volunteered to support the event. We are hopeful this event will be a mainstay for all ages of the wider community. We would love to see a strong and positive marketing campaign to encourage participation from ethnic minorities and all genders, highlighting the non-intimidating character of running as a universally accessible sporting activity.

    The pre-race communication from the organisers was excellent. The event itself was a pleasure with a nice (albeit small) event village.

    The course through Black Park is a lovely run mainly through shaded woods and the course was really well signed along with excellent and enthusiastic marshalls.

    This event was fairly low-key but well-organised, in a lovely setting and with nice people - perfect for me! Will definitely be back in the future.

    Very good and enjoyed the run.
    Help was available and water available after 2.5 KM which was very good.

    Great race this morning.
    For thoses who run the 10km you need more clear direction that you over the start again for your second lap. Last year it was different. Today some marshalls were unaware of which direction to go. Hence more clear signage or marshalls at this point of the race, would really improve the course.
    Also a different medal would be better, as I'd be reluctant to run again if it's the same medal, next year.

    Otherwise great morning 👍

    The atmosphere seem to be lacking. Even though there was a bubble entertainment for the children I think the place could have done with a DJ. Regular announcements and updates could be useful . Kids race was announced 15 min early and then asked to wait . Some more encouraging Marshall's could be useful . Overall good effort
