Thames Meander Marathon / Half Marathon Race Series
Saturday 23rd August 2014
A scenic summer run starting from the YMCA Hawker Centre (Kingston) proceeding towards the Thames Path on an out and back flat and fast scenic riverside route that is very well marked and marshalled all the way along the course.
Runners World rated as one of the top 10 marathons in the U.K
Marathon & Half - Course Descriptions
Both the Thames Meander Marathon / Half routes run along the Thames Path on the riverside trail starting and finishing at the YMCA Hawker Centre. The out / back marathon route proceeds from the YMCA HQ towards the Thames then meanders all the way down the Thames Path towards Putney Bridge on the near side which is the turnaround point, then back along the Thames Path past the race HQ as far as Kingston Bridge, returning to finish back at the YMCA HQ. The half marathon route emulates the marathon route up to just past Kew Pier which is the turnaround point, then returning to the HQ. Both courses are even flatter and faster than last year's courses so we're expecting some great marathon personal bests!
