About The Event:Come and join us for a perfect pre #LondonMarathon (or other Spring Marathons!) training run - an ideal opportunity to get a long run in with support & supplies!
If you missed out on any of our previous runs and are after one of the medals then this is the run for you! This is a 7 hour timed event where you can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of a 3.28 mile (5.3km) out and back, course along the beautiful Thames River and through the Thames Valley Nature Reserve as you wish within the 7 hour limit. We welcome runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap you will be able to choose from any of our previous iconic medals. Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We also have a 50k option for those wishing to run this distance.
For any Parkrun tourists, the Reading Parkrun uses the same area for their start, so you can sneak a little Parkrun in first should you wish!!
There will be a distance pin for all runners who complete either a half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, 50km or Ultra in the 7hr time limit which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The course is along the Thames River path and classified as a trail run. The course is flat and fast.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles. The toilets are situated in the Wokingham Waterside Centre which is available for our runners use from 9:30am and for the entire event. There is also a café situated in the Pleasure Grounds should you wish to use it. Parking is free along Thames Valley Park Drive.
