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 and runs along the Thames Path towards Kingston Bridge which is the turning point, the course then returns past the Race HQ proceeding all the way to the near side of Putney Bridge then back along the Thames Path, finishing up at the race HQ. The half marathon proceeds from the start in the opposite direction from the full marathon and runs along the Thames Path to just past Kew Pier which is the turnaround point, then returning to finish back at the HQ. Both courses are even flatter and faster than last year's course so the fast times should be achievable !!
