Did the Marathon in 2022
Really enjoyed the course, views and friendliness of organisers and runners alike. Only disappointing aspects were the food and water stations - more water required, and almost no food available, some bananas are all that is necessary. Take a look at Belvoir marathon 2 weeks ago, the stations there were fantastic (tea/coffee/sandwiches/cakes/bananas/…)! I will definitely recommend it to our running club. Thank you.

The course was beautiful but needed better signage … many people were confused about the route especially after the turnaround point. Really enjoyed the route and it was beautiful to run down the Thames path. With better signage people may well be more aware of the race and keep to one side as it was a bit busy at places where there was a thinner path. Overall a lovely race and I would do it again :)

Awful value for £40, unlike Basingstoke and Reigate less cost, they had free t shirt, free photos, pacers, goodie bag, 4 water stations, amazing marshalls, closed roads, you had out of date bars at aid station, 2021 and one bar was 2020, they just said " they came in a box" my freind stopped at a runner in distress and it took 45 minutes for first aid to arrive, what if it had been a heart attack? Tell me what we got for £40 please

Was my first marathon. Course is flat on mostly hard ground. There were some muddy bits and you share the path with the public - neither is an issue though. It’s a small and intimate race (some 200 marathoners and some half marathoners). I thought it was well organised and enjoyed the race

This is a decent half/full marathon course. It's super flat so no need to worry about hills. You have to be prepared for some congestion on the Thames path so this is worth bearing in mind if you're on a mission for a PB. At the turn point I got stuck behind a rowing crew who were trying to put their boat into the river for a minute or so and I couldn't squeeze past. I appreciated the rest, but I imagine some would be frustrated by this. But it's a low key event and well organised, so I'd still thoroughly recommend it.

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
I went to this race with a big group of the team. It's a really great race for a spectator and lots of places to cheer on from along the river and because part of the course is out and back you can see the runners multiple times without having to move very much. It's very flat and fast so good for PBs and the waves they released the runners in meant there was no issue with pinch points which was a great way of doing it.
