Magna Carta Marathon & Half Marathon
The Magna Carta marathon is based in scenic Runnymede and is right near the site where the treaty of Magna Carta was agreed by King John of England and signed on 15th June 1215.
The route is all completely runnable along this lovely stretch of the Thames Path trail and takes in some iconic views of the Queen Elizabeth statue, JFK Memorial, Magna Carta landmark, Old Windsor and the turnaround at the Old Windsor Lock.
The course will be extremely well marked and there will be marshals at the initial turnaround point near Staines Bridge and at the half / marathon turnaround at Old Windsor Lock.
Both races are in scenic Runnymede and will start on the Thames Path trail beside the Wraysbury Skiff & Boating Club.
The event is run over 3 days, so you can choose to run on each or every one of the days.
All runners will receive a bespoke Magna Carta finishers medal, and prizes will be awarded for the M / F 1st, 2nd & 3rd places.
The race will start on the River Thames right next to the Race HQ which is the Wraysbury Skiff & Boating Club.
It's a lapped course on one of the most scenic parts of the River Thames, and it will initially go out to Staines Bridge on a 2 x 2.5 mile out and back loop, followed by 4 out / back sections of 5.3 miles turning around at the Old Windsor Lock Check Point.
