Organiser's Description

The Quicksilver Hampton Court Half Marathon is the original race in the area. It is run over a fast, flat and visually interesting course that borders the river-side grounds of the magnificent Hampton Court Palace to the South West of London. The fast flat route is definite PB potential, while also offering great scenery.

Runners will enjoy the closed road loop around the picturesque village of Thames Ditton, the historic Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames marketplace, the iconic 3 mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames, and of course full views of Hampton Court Palace. The route is pavement, pedestrian/cycle track, riverside way, and tarmac paths through parks.

chip timing

Within your race pack you will find your unique pre-programmed timing chip already attached to the reverse of your race number. There will be two times recorded for each runner. The first is what is called the Gun Time. It’s the official race time and is the time that the runner takes to complete the course from the time the gun was fired. The second is the Chip Time. This records the time that the runner actually takes from crossing the start line to crossing the finish line. The difference between the two times is the time elapsed from when the Starting signal sounds and the runner crosses the start line.
As far as the rules of athletics are concerned the Gun Time is the important time, and this is what the results and prizes are based on. The chip time though is important for the individual runner in assessing their performance in the race.

Great event, nice route. A lot better than expected. Was a little concerned about non closed road sections, but all fine and went really well. If they can turn down the wind next time that would be great!!
