Join Down Tow Up Flow Half Marathon 2021
A gloriously scenic, flat, multi-terrain, point-to-point half marathon along the Thames towpath (therefore mainly traffic-free). Run in reverse directions each year; in 2018 it is "Up Flow' therefore starting in Windsor and finishing in Marlow, taking in Bourne End, Cookham & Maidenhead along the way.
As this is a point-to-point race, you can (if you wish) park at the finish in Marlow and take the coach provided to the start (additional £8 and must be pre-booked) - once you've finished the race your car will be there waiting for you! Spectacular finish and brilliant for spectators, with plenty of vantage points along the way. Refreshments at the start & finish, so bring the family!
The race takes you along the towpath from Windsor to Marlow. As a multi-terrain route, it will provide you with different challenges along the way, such as kissing gates and bridges. The route follows a public footpath and you will meet other users, whether on foot or bicycle – please be considerate to other users. We will do all we can to warn other users in advance and to facilitate your run. At points you will detour away from the river and across a road – there will be marshals and signage at these points. Please take care when crossing the roads and be aware that these roads are not closed to traffic; you must stop and make sure the road is clear before crossing. Our marshals are not allowed to stop traffic for you. The footpaths can be narrow and rutted in places so please take extra care on these stretches. Don’t get frustrated if you can’t pass someone – remember there will be a wider section coming up when you can make your move! Above all, enjoy the route, the countryside and all that entails.
