The course follows the ALTERNATIVE Thames Path route, first crossing Walton Bridge and then meandering through through Lower Halliford & Shepperton as opposed to the southerly route which ends shortly afterwards at the ferry crossing.
Having crossed the bridge between Pangbourne and Whitchurch, runners will follow the Thames Path at first through the houses, before heading up Whitchurch High Street. Rather than continuing directly ahead, the course turns LEFT here, down Manor Road, around 300 metres before bending slightly left with the road. The aid station is in the village hall, a very short distance down the first right hand turn off of Manor Road.
The Thames Path emerges on to Clifton Hampden Bridge 85 miles in to the race. The Path then turns right to cross the bridge and makes a left to continue onwards on the right hand bank of the river. Instead of taking this left, runners, will turn right on to Clifton Hampden High Street, passing the school and church on the right and coming to a major traffic cross roads. Emerging at that crossing, runners will cross the busy Abingdon Road taking GREAT care and turn left to reach the aid station in the village hall. To get back on course runners will back track the way they have come before taking the right to continue up the right hand bank of the river.
The Thames is the longest river entirely in England and the second longest in the United Kingdom.
