Windsor Womens 10k - CANCELLED

The Long Walk, Windsor Great Park, Windsor, Berkshire

Organiser's Description

It is with great regret that the organisers of the Windsor Running Festival have today announced the cancellation of the 2020 Windsor Running Festival incorporating the Windsor Womens 10K and the Windsor Half Marathon.

We know this is extremely disappointing for all runners, but we made the difficult decision in the best interest of the health and wellbeing of all those involved in making our events such a success from runners, supporters, volunteers, sponsors, to suppliers.

Paul Sedgwick, Deputy Ranger of Windsor Great Park said: “All of us at Windsor Great Park, whilst disappointed at this news, fully support and completely understand the decision. The safety and well-being of all associated with the Event has to be our priority. The Windsor Running Festival is a hugely important part of our event program, and we look forward to working with Peter Hier and his team in making the Windsor Half marathon & Windsor Womens 10K next year a huge success."

Make sure that take part in our Aerobic warm up, taken by a Qualified Instructor, it is great fun and certainly gets you warmed up!

Make sure that you have everything you need: • Shoes (make sure you have worn them before you race in them!) • Clean socks. • Shorts. • Vest / T-shirt. • Track bottoms. • Warm Top (Waterproof if weather is likely to be bad). • Extra clothes in case the weather is cold/wet. • Race number/Race Information book • Safety pins (for your number). • Bottle of water. • Energy bar / banana for post race. • Travel information (Any travel tickets you may have bought).

This is not a definitive list but does cover the most important items that you will need.

There will be a public address system to keep everyone updated as the start time approaches.

Preparation: As the race start time gets nearer, make sure you visit the toilet and warm up – be careful when warming up – it is so easy to do too much particularly if this is your first one. some jogging and our Aerobic warm up should be plenty!

Lining Up: Everyone lines up according to their expected finishing time, with the faster more experienced runners right on the start line and those expecting to finish later, further back. This way, no-one is impeded and it is essential that you do this! You do not want to be caught up with the fast runner’s right at the start.

Start: An air horn is sounded and the race begins. Unless you are right on the start line, progress will be slightly slower as the runners move away – which is often a good thing because you are not tempted to go too fast at the beginning, which can ruin your race.

Finish: The finish line will be clearly marked and you will be able to see the gantry from the top of the Long Walk – 1.5 km away!

Post Finish: As you cross the finish line you will be marshalled into “funnels” where you will be asked to keep moving forward to receive your medal and water will be available, then make your way to the T-shirt Marquee to collect your finishers t-shirt. It is imperative that you do keep moving. You can then reunited with family and friends, get warm/dry kit on and reflect on what was a fantastic achievement!

The course start and finishes along the Long Walk with the start being around 190m 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. It is then almost all downhill to the finish as you sweep onto the top of the Long Walk with Windsor Castle as the back drop.
