Organiser's Description

Quicksilver Running’s flagship event celebrates its tenth year in 2023. One of South West London’s major running events, the Hampton Court Half Marathon is highly rated as preparation for a Spring marathon or a major distance race in its own right. The 2023 race takes place 8 weeks before the Brighton Marathon and 9 weeks before the TCS London Marathon, making it an ideal target race in the training build up to these events.

The Quicksilver race is the original Hampton Court Half Marathon and 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. King Henry VIII and his Tudor entourage will be there to cheer everyone on!

Runners enjoy an initial closed road loop around the picturesque village of Thames Ditton, pass through historic Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames ancient marketplace, follow the iconic 3 mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames, and reach the magnificent Hampton Court Palace after 10 miles. The route follows closed roads, pavement, pedestrian/cycle track, riverside way, and tarmac paths through parks and is well recognised for its PB potential.

All finishers will receive our super bespoke race medal once crossing the finish line.
PLUS free race photos. An amazing free package of race photos of YOU, worth £19.50, included in the price of your entry.

Course Details

The Quicksilver Hampton Court Half Marathon follows a fast, flat and visually interesting course that borders the river-side grounds of the magnificent Hampton Court Palace. The route is pavement, pedestrian/cycle track, riverside way, and tarmac paths through parks. The original race on this course founded in 2014 offers PB potential and a great atmosphere.

Race Day Info

The race starts and finishes on Giggs Hill Green in Thames Ditton. The first mile of the course is run on closed roads, and in total 5 miles are traffic free. The 08.30am start time and new “wave” groupings have been designed to give runners a clear run on the open sections.

The race HQ is at Giggs Hill Green, Giggs Hill Road, Thames Ditton, KT7 0BT. Race HQ is based in the Event Village, on the green.

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.

race packs

Race packs will include both your race number and timing chip.
Please note that we are not sending race packs out in the post in advance.
You are able to collect your number in advance of the race from the Up & Running store in TEDDINGTON. Race packs will be available to collect from Saturday 5th February – Saturday 19th February.
Advance collection is only available for those who entered before 12:00 on Wednesday 2nd February.
UP & RUNNING will also be offering a special discount in the Teddington store when you collect your race number.
*If you do not collect your number in advance you will be able to collect from Race Registration on the day, although please allow plenty of time if you plan to do this. Only the person who has entered the race should collect the race number. It is permitted to transfer race numbers to another person, but this should only be done in advance through the Race registration service operated by Sport Systems. This is a condition for entering the race and is extremely important especially in the event of illness or an accident during the event. It may also affect the results, and may mean someone getting a prize to which they aren't entitled.
Pin your race number on the FRONT of your running vest or ‘T’ shirt, where it is most visible for race officials. Runners who do not have a properly displayed number or are identified as running under the wrong name will be liable to disqualification.
Please complete the form on the back of your number with your name, contact details and any medical condition. This will help in the event of an accident or illness.

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!!
