Sunday, 16 June 2024 @ 09:00

Who doesn't like cake?! Our Great British Bake Run is back for another year!

The medal is a fantastic cupcake which doubles up as a magnet to go on your fridge!

We will also hold a baking competition with prizes for best tasting cake, best looking cake, best effort cake - all of which will be on the aid table to be eaten during the run!

Address: The Last Hop, Unit 2, Thames Edge Court, Clarence Street, Staines, TW18 4SU

Distance & Time: This is a 7 hour Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run, we welcome runners of all abilities (and any walkers too!). The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a lap. A full lap is 4.37 miles or 7km (this is subject to change to a 3.28 mile loop depending on course conditions) and you can run as many or as few of these laps as you wish in the 7 hour time limit which starts from the official event start time of 9am. It is 3 laps for a half marathon, 6 for a marathon and 7 or over for an ultra, we also have a 50km distance available.

The regular course is subject to some change near the time of the event depending on our health and safety review of the course.

Course: The course along a beautiful stretch of the River Thames. It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required. The course is mainly well made paths and tarmac with a very short grass section. Road shoes are suitable all year round.

Medals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic cupcake medal!

Distance Pins: We have distance pins available for anyone who runs a half-marathon distance or more. Pins available to collect are our Half-Marathon, Mega-Half, Marathon, 50km and Ultra pins. You will receive one pin on the ribbon of your medal to reflect your achievement.

Goody Bag: Absolutely! You earned the calories after all, so all our finishers get a goody bag. As well as our standard goody bag, with a selection of various goodies to choose from, we also have a fabulous vegan goody bag for our vegan runners.

Aid Table: We have a fantastic aid table and drinks table at the start / finish of each lap. There is an incredible selection of drinks and savoury or sweet snacks such as crisps, cheese, fruit and cookies with vegan options also available.

If you would like to run with someone under 12 years of age, please contact us directly. We have two events running at the same time. The main event is a UKA Permitted event and is for all runners aged 18 or over. In addition, we have a non-UKA event for runners under the age of 18. Runners under the age of 18 will automatically be included in the non-UKA start list and this event will start 1 minute after the main event.

Our running events are held on public footpaths so we would be grateful if all runners were considerate of other path users.
