Route information
With two alternating laps with one course taking you out towards Sonning from Wokingham Waterside Centre and the second taking runners towards Caversham, there'll be plenty to see along the way apart from just road! Each lap will be 3.28 miles, is fast and flat and there will be an aid station every 3.28 miles to keep you going on your way round and pushing for marathon distances.
This event is open to runners of all abilities and you are welcome to walk around the course if you prefer. It is possible to walk the entire marathon distance within 8 hours.
Though this event is inspired by the London Marathon, you do not have to complete the entire marathon distance if you do not wish to. The minimum distance required to earn a medal and a goody bag is 5k.
