Course Details

The course

The Woldingham Half and Full will be an out and back course (once for the half, twice for the full marathon). The race will start at Woldingham School itself.

This is a road run, mixed terrain and trail route. With some of the most beautiful countryside.

Aid Stations
We will provide aid – drinks, fruit and snacks/gels stations approximately after every 6 miles – so you will pass the first aid station. In view of the hot weather I will ask runners to take a bottle with them for good measure – please can you drop any rubbish in the bins at the aid stations and not in the countryside.

Mile Markers
There will not be any individual mile markers along the course , except for the 6 miles , 13.1 miles and 20 miles and finish 26.2m – so just have a look at the link showing the mapometer and where the estimated mile markers should be.

There will be open clean portable toilets at the school – and sadly non along the course route, which is essentially in the countryside – however, there will be a pub The Botley Hill Farm after the 8 mile mark if you are desperate – otherwise please do as nature intended, where you feel hidden from public view.

There will a limited number of race marshals and supporters who will be situated at some road junctions, aid stations and the HQ start and finish area. Please do bear in mind they are all giving up their time to support you on race day, and make sure it’s both fun and successful – without these people we would not be able to put on the Woldingham Marathon. I would encourage you, to give your thanks to our wonderful support team right throughout the day – they will be cheering you on !!
We would also urge all runners to use caution when crossing busy junctions, as marshals do not have rights to stop any traffic, but will obviously help runners at certain key points. It is the
responsibility of each entrant to ensure care and caution is exercised when crossing roads and junctions within the park to ensure there are no accidents or injuries.

Race Sweeper
A race cut off time of 7.0 hours ish.. (4.30pm) will be strictly adhered to. Any runners who appear to be unable to complete the distance by then we be asked to stop and return directly to Woldingham School HQ. A race sweeper will monitor the slowest runner/s to communicate this with the race directors. We hope as in previous years, all of our runners will safely and successfully complete the distance!

Race Start Time - 09:30
The marathon will start at 9.30am sharp –! With that in mind, please get there nice and early, park and get changed - we should be able to put some tea and coffee on for the runners as they start and when they finish to make things nice and civilised.

Changing Area
There are no specific changing areas at the school - but plenty of areas around the front of school that runners and change and prepare for the run.

Bag Drop
The Marshals will look after all bags at the front of the school underneath the stone steps - these will be kept safe throughout the race day itself and can be collected at the end of the event.

First Aid & Communication
Limited first aid will be available at HQ any runner who feels unwell should stop and notify other runners and ask for assistance/support and we will get someone out from the the medical support team. Please do not run if you feel unwell on race day, as this is a tough out and back course. Your health and well-being is paramount to us all. Any emergencies can be phoned to.

We will have food and drinks for people and runners at the HQ - this will be open throughout race day itself – spectators will be able to sit outside and watch the runners leave and return while drinking a lovely coffee or tea and eating cakes and sandwiches.

Prize Giving and Prizes at the Finish
All half and full marathon runners upon completion at the finish line will need to collect the following;
A Woldingham medal and a unique Woldingham 2019 tee-shirt (various sizes) – and some goody- goody bags !
We will also have some special trophies to award to successful men/women runners in the event (first men/lady) etc.
Kit List

Normal running gear

We would encourage friends and families to congregate at Woldingham School to watch the finishers come in, and witness the presentation of medals and tee shirts to all of the finishers. The whole of Woldingham School is accessible so we will let you roam free to explore all the amazing grounds of the historic location.

Where to drop litter?

Litter along the Woldingham course - Please drop all your litter in the bins or area situated next to the Aid Stations or the many various bins along the course. It’s important we leave the Vanguard Way with only our footprints of the running and nothing else, to ensure the beauty and well-being of Woldingham is maintained.

Are headphones allowed?

For your own personal safety we recommend that you do not run with MP3 music in your ears – so you can be aware of marshal instructions and other runners and users along the Woldingham route. – road crossing take care Limpsfield Road after 8 miles just past the Botley Farm pub - traffic goes quickly along that road. Also Slines Oak Road as you come off the golf course sharp bend - stop look and listen - only cross when it is safe as its a blind corner.

What happens to the results and photographs?

Results and photographs will be emailed to all the runners and results posted onto the Woldingham Marathon website as soon as possible after the event. Richard our brilliant photographer will aim to get some of your best shots along the course – so if you see a man smiling with a big camera – near a red sports car – smile back please. ALL our photographs will be free to download for your to post on your personal social media sites and indeed I will endeavour to have some of the best ones reported in the Croydon Advertiser Newspaper with the results.

Is this a chip timed event?

Our event will be chip timed so Martin and Louis will make sure these are all recorded at the finish so we can get them uploaded onto the www.1m2go.co.uk website – for both the half and full marathon runners.
