Kings of the castle - Jubilee River Way
Thursday 12th September 2019
A 6 hour timed challenge, where you can run for as long as you want (up to 6 hours) and complete as many or as few 5.25 mile out and back laps as you choose. 5 laps for a marathon, 6+ for an ultra or 1 or more to be a finisher and get a medal and a stack of chocolate, (there will also be a half marathon option by completing a shorter 3rd lap).
This will be the 1st of a series of medals with the theme of Kings of Windsor Castle, starting with William the Conqueror who commenced building Windsor Castle in around 1070.
The route is flat and as you leave the Riverside Centre with Slough behind you, you enter the countryside and follow the crushed stone path with the river Jubilee on one side and fields to the other, on reaching Dorney wetlands you turn back enjoying views towards the Castle.
The race will start at 9:00 am and you must have started your final lap within the 6 hour limit, you will then be able to complete that lap even if your finish time is a little over the 6 hours.
