Great event. My first time at Egham half marathon which I enjoyed throughly. I parked at the station car which was only a 10 minute walk to the event. The course was well marshalled and everyone was really friendly. I will definitely be back next year!

Well organised, not quite as flat as advertised. I did the half marathon in 2020 - it's quite a small affair but fairly well organised. It was easy to get to the start from Egham station and well signposted. Not a bad atmosphere in the event village considering it was early February and a bit muddy. The course itself is reasonable though not very scenic. It's also not quite as flat as billed - there was a pretty steep hill at around 6 miles that took the wind out of my sails, then it was undulating for a few miles after that. I only saw one small set of portaloos on the course which could have been a problem for some. But plenty of marshals and three water stations is good for a half. Overall, a good event for a small and early-season run.

Fair. I ran the very first Thorpe Park and Egham half marathon. Parking was free, on site on grass land. The start is on the carpark of the Thorpe Park theme park gates. I think the route was through an industrial area and besides dual carriageways. The crowds are great at the start and finish only. When collecting my medal I noticed it was broken and went to get another medal, they were all like it as they did not have permission to use the Thorpe Park logo and had to cut that park off. Finisher T-shirt were few and far between in everyones sizes, they had to look for them. Think the car park exit was a little tricky due to the amount of cars exiting at one time.
