We also provide timing solutions for running, cycling, endurance, triathlon, biathlon, aquathlon, relay and swimming events. We have created timing solutions for many unique events (how about abseiling down the front of an hotel followed by a timed stair climb back to the top), If you have an event that needs timing please let us know and we’ll provide you with a competitive quote.

Did the Marathon in 2019
Well organised event, but the course was incredibly hilly! Really tough race. Not closed roads either, so there were some cars to contend with along the many country lanes. Drink stops every four miles had high-5, jelly babies and water (but could have been more frequent, as it was a very hot day!). Excellent tech T-shirt and fab medal at the finish, but very little opportunity for friends to watch en route (meaning not many supporters throughout), and with the hills it was easy to become a little dejected, so some support would have been gladly received! Volunteer marshals were all lovely!… read more

Well organised, and the option to opt out of the full marathon if you felt unable to continue was most welcome. I think more water/aid stations are required for the full run, but i recognise that logistics and size of the event probably precludes this. I will run it again, but bring my own water in a vest.… read more

Route description
Route description

Full Marathon:

The Full Marathon runners follow the same course as the Half Marathon until they enter the village of Oddingley for the second time; they then carry on straight through the village and start the second lap. They then follow the same course again except just before they get to the village of Himbleton there is a right turn past Huddington entering a loop that brings them back to the far side of Himbleton rejoining the original Half Marathon Course. They then repeat the route along Hay Lane, through Spernal Green and back to Oddingley before retracing their original steps past the Pear Tree Hotel and following the Half Marathoners along the canal towpath to your
finish on the Worcester Warriors Site.
