Water of Life 10K, Half Marathon and Junior Race - October routes

Both races take you along a mixture of road, trails and off-road footpaths, some of which go across fields that may be muddy, depending upon the weather. You will follow the towpath from Marlow towards Henley, before looping back to Marlow. As a multi-terrain route, it will provide you with different challenges along the way. You will occasionally come across kissing gates, bridges and steps.

The route follows public footpaths and you will meet other users, whether on foot or bicycle – please be considerate to other users. We will do all we can to warn other users in advance and to facilitate your run, but we have to share the towpath. The footpath is narrow and rutted in places – please take extra care on these stretches. Above all, enjoy the route, the countryside, and all that entails.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2016

    I love a small race event, the atmosphere is so friendly, the organisation might not be quite up to the standard of the huge races, but that’s often what makes them all the more endearing.

    It was an absolutely cracking run. Great value for money, excellent course and scenery. Great atmosphere, brilliant marshaling.

    A fantastic race. It could not be faulted. Excellent course, marshalls so friendly and supportive, the whole atmosphere was out of this world. Certainly a race I would do again and recommend. Thanks for such a nice medal and t-shirt. Well done everyone. One of the best races I have done in the 30 years I have been running.
