About the race

River Thames Spring Half Marathon

The River Thames Spring Half Marathon on the 4th March 2018 takes place over a flat, fast, scenic and largely traffic free course. The start and finish is at Walton Bridge, Surrey KT12 1BT and the route follows roads and towpath to the south west of London. It is a perfect preparation event if you are running London, Southampton or Brighton marathons or you just want the challenge of completing a half marathon.

Along the route there are water stations, mile markers and plenty of friendly marshals. There is ample car parking close to the start, toilets and baggage facilities. All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and goody bag.

Prizes will be awarded to the first three men and women; first W35, M40, W45, M50.

"A well organised event, with friendly marshals, a mostly traffic free, flat course and a generous goody bag. I will definitely be back and will be recommending it to my running friends." – Pippa, South London Harriers

Fast and flat mixed surface

Love this race as local to me so I can leave home 15 mins before the start! Super flat run through Walton town and then mainly on the Thames path up to Hampton and back. There are no hills except a teeny bridge!

A PB race, I hit a PB on this race this year!!

Great course - mix of towpath (excellent) and road (good)

Love this run - have done the autumn one before.

It's very well organised, feels very friendly and informal (but don't confuse that for loosely organised because it's very professional indeed).

Personally I love the towpath part of the course more than the road sections, which I find a bit uninspiring, but that's personal view.  The mix makes it a bit of a toss up between road and trail shows - I opted for trail this time and think it was a good choice because it was rather wet and muddy underfoot along the river.
