The finish is a wonderful 1.5k downhill looking straight towards Windsor Castle! The course is undulating but well worth it!

The course start and finishes along the Long Walk with the start being around 190 m further up the Long Walk to enable us to use the Windsor Half Marathon finish.
The course itself is undulating and passes through some of the most beautiful countryside. There are two drink stations out on the course and also one at the finish. Along the course you will pass the Royal Lodge which was the Queen Mother’s residence and is now home to Prince Andrew, the Royal School and then at around 5.5 km you will pass the Statue of Queen Elizabeth II erected in celebration of her Golden Jubilee.
