Thames Meander Marathon & Half – Winter routes
Marathon Route: A ﬂat scenic riverside trail marathon starting and ﬁnishing at the YMCA Hawker Centre HQ. The course takes you along the meandering Thames Path out to the far side of Canbury Gardens. After the Gardens, runners will return past the HQ and along the Thames Path trail as far as the Barn Elms Rowing Club turnaround point, returning past the HQ again to the far side of Canbury Gardens which is the ﬁnal turnaround point, returning to ﬁnish at the YMCA HQ.
Half Marathon Route: Similar to the marathon route, but starts in the opposite direction to avoid congestion. The first turnaround point will be at the Kew Gardens car park, after which runners will run back past Race HQ, turnaround at the Boaters Inn Pub, and speed on towards the YMCA for a spectacular finish.
Runners on both routes will enjoy the fast and flat route along asphalt paths or hard packed dirt trails, providing the perfect opportunity to lock in a final PB for the year.
Course Marking/Signage: Both routes will be very well marked throughout with Hermes Running yellow / black chevron ﬁxed directional signage and pink ribbons all along the run routes. Runners can relax and enjoy the run knowing that the courses will be well-marshalled at both turnaround points and at the respective check points.
