The Race Organiser’s Marathon Prep event has in recent years become a major staging post for runners training for a spring marathon. The 16, 20 or 24 mile options means that it works for marathon schedules through April and into May.
The Marathon Prep event offers the perfect race day rehearsal and key long run session in one event.
Scheduled in the month before major marathons in London, Brighton and Paris, the event provides the ideal conditions to practice your pacing, fuelling and endurance amongst hundreds of other runners to help you head into your marathon feeling prepared and confident.
Set at the spectacular, flat and smooth-surfaced Dorney Lake near Windsor, the course takes you around the perimeter of the water with fuel and water stations placed every two miles. Pacers, mile markers and chip-timed results will make it as easy as possible to get your pacing right, so that you can focus on your run and practice refuelling and rehydrating during a race.
Plus, you'll receive a Marathon Prep medal, goody bag with replenishing food and drink, and your chip-timed result as soon as you've crossed the line.
Don't miss the chance to prepare for a great marathon race day - take this opportunity to rehearse your:
- race day nutrition
- race preparation and travel
- running in a busy race situation with a marked-out course that is new to you
- running in all of your marathon race kit
- race rehydration and refuelling
- recovery and strengthening
From as little as £18, you can't afford to not prepare for your big day. Due to Dorney Lake capacity and ensuring a great, safe race experience, places are limited.
