    Please note that the routes can be subject to change following health and safety inspections. Any key changes will be communicated on the day.

  • What time does it start and finish?

    The hike will set off in waves 20 minutes apart, from 8.10am for both the full and half marathon.

    You will book your start wave when you register. These are given on a first-come, first-served basis and we advise hikers with a slow pace to book the earliest start wave available to give plenty of time to complete the route.

    For the full marathon, we estimate that the fastest walkers will finish in around 7.5 hours while the slowest walkers could take around 12.5 hours.

    For the half marathon, we estimate that the fastest walkers will finish in around 4 hours while the slowest walkers could take around 6 hours.

    If your plans change, don’t worry, you can amend your start wave using our Manage My Booking page.

  • How do I get there?

    Parking for the full marathon and half marathon is available at the start at Windsor Racecourse, Windsor, SL4 5JJ.

    Free shuttle buses will run from both finish lines back to the car park in the afternoon.

    You can book parking when you register.

  • When does registration close?

    Registration for the full and half marathon closes at midnight on the Friday 5 July, one week before the hike, or earlier if it sells out.
