Route description
Route description

This out & back half and full marathon is the perfect way to check in on your summer racing speed. The route is an off-road towpath trail along the River Thames, making for a fast and flat course with beautiful views of the river.

The course will start in Walton on Thames, head out to Hampton Court, then return along the same route. Those running the half marathon will do this loop twice, with the marathon completing it 4 times.

This is Race 2 in the Icebird Series, with the next 2 races further along in the year.


The finish area is a great place to support your runners as they race around the course. Given that it is a lapped course, from this area you will be able to spot them more than once.
