Running is open! Check out the latest update here
Run Dorney 5k & 10k
Join us for a 5k or 10k at Dorney Lake; home to London 2012′s Olympic rowing events. Dorney Lake, situated near the village of Dorney in Buckinghamshire, is a purpose built rowing lake with grounds that are a perfect backdrop to running as well as rowing. The flat course is ideal for a chip timed personal best over the 5k or 10k distance.
**Due to the Coronavirus and social distancing measures enforced by the government alongside guidance issued by Run Britain we have had to make some changes to the event village and race itself.

As always with RunThrough, you will each get a medal, water, fruit & flapjack on the day!

There will not be a formal baggage drop within the event village, please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event and leave anything in the car during the race to reduce contact between runners and staff. If this is not possible, please email email@example.com.

DURING THE RACE
The race will start in waves based on your estimated finish time, with the faster runners at the start and slower near the back to avoid any congestion and the need to overtake on course.
There will be an informal grab and go water station with sealed sports top bottles on the course, however we ask that you stay hydrated before the event and if you are able to please bring your own. Bottles and camelbacks are permitted.
If you need to overtake on the course please give a wide berth of at least 1 meter around any runners.
Spitting and nasal clearance during the race is not permitted.
AFTER THE RACE
Do not stop within the finish barriers. Please continue past the finish until you pass the medals and are in an open space.

There will be toilets for you to use within the event village.
There will be water available on every lap of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and bananas for when you finish :-)
