Organiser's Description

This event promises to be a memorable experience with breath-taking views and a friendly atmosphere. Why not make a weekend of it with family and friends and stay in Windsor and visit the local attractions?

 

This event takes runners past the historical sites of Windsor, Boveney Lock, Bray, Dorney, Maidenhead and Eton, finishing with Windsor Castle in front of you!

 

Mainly following river trail paths, the course incorporates many of the key landmarks that have made Royal Berkshire and its surrounding area so famous. It’s an absolute must for anyone looking for a break from the pavement grind and a change of scenery.

 

The event isn’t designed to be a gruelling cross country through deep mud and puddles, but aims to be a fun, friendly and fast trail run along one of England's most historic courses.

 

Further details will be communicated by email in the week leading up to each event.

 

Entry on the Day will not be available at these events.

 

These events will not be Licensed.
