About The Event

As You Wish...need we say more?? Ok, we will - who doesn't know the classic line from yet another 80's iconic movie, this time The Princess Bride! The themed medal will be based around the cult classic, if you are already a fan and can quote the rest of this sentence 'Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father... then this is the run for you! Or if you have no idea what we are talking about and just fancy a lovely run around a picturesque stretch of the Thames, with an incredible selection of treats to enjoy along the way as well as a delicious goody bag to take home with you, then this is also the run for you!

All abilities are welcome at our super-inclusive events and we also welcome walkers too.

Distance & Time

This is a 7 hour Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a lap. A full lap is 4.37 miles or 7km (this is subject to change to a 3.28 mile loop depending on course conditions) and you can run as many, or as few, of these laps as you wish in the 7 hour time limit which starts from the official event start time of 9am. It is 3 laps for a half marathon, 6 for a marathon and 7 or over for an ultra, we also have a 50km distance available.

Course

The course along a beautiful stretch of the River Thames. It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required. The course is mainly well made paths and tarmac with a very short grass section. Road shoes are suitable all year round.

The regular course is subject to some change near the time of the event depending on our health and safety review of the course.

Medals & Pins

As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic medal. We also have distance pins available for anyone who runs a half-marathon distance or more. Pins available to collect are our Half-Marathon, Mega-Half, Marathon, 50km and Ultra pins. You will receive one pin on the ribbon of your medal to reflect your achievement.

Goody Bag

Absolutely! You earned the calories after all, so all our finishers get a goody bag. As well as our standard goody bag, with a selection of various goodies to choose from, we also have a fabulous vegan goody bag for our vegan runners.

Aid Table

We have a fantastic aid table and drinks table at the start / finish of each lap. There is an incredible selection of drinks and savoury or sweet snacks such as crisps, cheese, fruit and cookies with vegan options also available.
