Remembering A Runner
During the entry process, if you want us to remember a runner then please enter their name in the entry question. If you are not a family member of the runner to be remembered, then we ask you obtain the permission of the family.
We will contact you in order to confirm the Charity you want us to distribute any of the donations we raise and also to find out a little more about the runner.
Go Fund Me
We are raising money from our Free Event on 8th August 2021 for charity. The fund will be to be distributed to the charity of choice from bereaved families of runners.
We are aware of a few runners who sadly passed away during 2020 and we believe this would be a great way to remember their achievements. We ope the community will be able to help us reach at least £1,000.
We will be providing the medals and the event for free and we will be donating 100% of this fund.
There is certainly no obligation to donate for anyone who has entered our free event, but if you do want to assist then feel free to help. You can click through to the fund here
About The Event
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 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 Key Worker themed medal or if we run out of these medals, one of our Saturn S medals! Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit!
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. As you would expect, the brewery has a range of beers, but also serves other drinks and food too.
Places are strictly limited to 100 runners initially, however, depending on changes to social distancing rules we will increase the numbers where possible. If you can't get in the initial 100 spaces, then keep checking back. We will inform runners on our Facebook Group first as places open up, so join us on our group and be the first to hear about the extra places https://www.facebook.com/groups/518330428522979/
