Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We even have a 50K option for those wishing to run this distance!
For those runners who choose to run 4 laps or more, you will also earn a Saturn Running half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, ultra or 50k pins which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The course is along the Thames River and a mixture of path and trail. The course is flat and fast and is a truly beautiful course that follows the river thames through picturesque scenery and nature reserve.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles. The toilets are situated in the Wokingham Waterside Centre which is available for our runners use from 9.30am and for the entire event. There is also a small café situated within centre should you wish to use it and changing facilities available after the run. There is free road parking. The run is taking place after parkrun so please arrive after 9.45am to ensure you can find a parking space.
This event is more expensive than our other events due to the fantastic medal design.
