We are at a brewery so it would be wrong not to have an Oktoberfest Run! You don't have to drink is the first rule as is you must be careful if you do have a drink at the aid station. We will, for our Oktoberfest run only, have some of the fabulous Thames Side Brewery's beers at the aid table for runners to try. You will also all receive as your goody bag either a two pint takeaway beer of your choice or an extra special goody bag which includes some fabulous chocolate. You will be able to select between the two options when you enter as we know not everyone likes alcohol!!
This is a 7 hour timed event where you can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of a 4.37 mile, 7.0km out and back, course along the beautiful River Thames as you wish within the 7 hour limit. We welcome all runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap will earn a fabulous cake themed medal (and let's face it, everyone loves cake...why else do we run?!)! Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! You won't be allowed to run if you are drunk so its tasters when running please.
For those runners who choose to run 3 laps or more, you will also earn Saturn Running half marathon, marathon or ultra pin 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 with the start and finish area close to the centre of Staines-Upon-Thames.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 4.37 miles. The toilets are situated within the Thames Side Brewery which is available for our runners use from 8.30am and for the entire event.
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 events.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out.
