What Is Windsor and Eton Marathon?

If you are a fan when it comes to seeing marathons then this is the ideal event for you. For those who know little to nothing about this event, it is a half marathon run on the flattest courses of UK. The event is held near Dorney Lake, Eton College Rowing Centre and is conveniently located along the M4 Motorway.

The paths that are dedicated to the marathon are smooth tarmac roads and have very little traffic. The marathon is actually 4.5 loops of the beautiful Dorney Lake.

This event is also licensed by UK Athletics to provide 100% accurately measured courses and this half marathon attracts over 1000 runners from all over. Every one that is of 17 years and above is eligible to take part in the Half marathon.

What are the Prizes

A very notable quality of this event is that all finishers are awarded bespoke medals. There are prizes for Overall first, second and third male and female as well as for first in Junior male and female. Also, there is a prize for Vet male and Female.

Some Important Considerations

This year, the date has been decided as 16th November 2019 and a total of 1500 runners are allowed to participate. The average time to complete the half marathon is said to be almost 2 hours. The marathon has also chip timing technology to calculate accurate finishing time for the marathon. A medical team will also be present to tend to any injuries or emergencies. For the runners, there will be water stations every 3 miles to prevent dehydration.
