A great opportunity to run on closed roads on a fast, flat course! Voted 3rd in the 'Pb Potential' category in Runners World Races of the Year 2013 Awards. Suitable for beginners, PB-Hunters and competitive athletes alike.
Now in its 9th year, the Maidenhead Half Marathon is an established favourite in the local race calendar: it is known for its enthusiastic spectator support, impeccable organisation, and most of all its undisputed PB-potential. Held on closed roads around urban Maidenhead and scenic Cookham, this is a fast race on a flat course, and will delight everyone whether you want to improve your race time or embark on your very first half marathon.
Frequent pre-race communications and a friendly and welcoming crew on the day will ensure that you know all you need to about the event and are set to enjoy your run, whatever your goal.
The town centre start and finish means that parking and other facilities are close by; and the race village right next to the start/finish gantry provides number-collection, enquiry point, toilets, supervised baggage-drop, hot and cold drinks, and refreshments for carnivores, vegetarians, and vegans alike.
Spectators and supporters are well catered for whether they want to visit the nearby town centre shops and cafes, soak up the atmosphere in the race village and cheer the runners in to the line, or take part themselves in the Family Fun Run (details below).
All finishers receive a bespoke commemorative medal, and there are age-group prizes as well as prizes for the first local (SL6 postcode) male and female. Chip timing is used to ensure accurate results and to provide print-outs of your times as soon as you finish the race.
