Coming back to Windsor and Eton in 2023 is a completely unique 10km trail race for runners of all abilities brought to you by Runface.
On an out and back course from Eton & Windsor, you'll be taking on not just other runners, but a target pace boat full of spectators that will be tracking you and trying to beat you back to the finish line. All runners set off together in a traditional race format, with a difference, because just yards from where you start on the Brocas fields in Eton, the 5 Thames Cruise boats will be starting too and they'll be full of your friends and family members ready to cheer you on, as you try to beat the boat. The course is set under the beautiful backdrop of Windsor castle and is a flat 10km run on mixed terrain and is not suitable for spikes. Whilst most of the course follows the Thames path there are some sections that border fields and could become muddy if we have had persistent rain. There will be times when the course will deviate away from the Thames path to give the boats time to turn around but don't worry you will soon be back on their trail again and racing them home! We'll also be running an optional Children's 1 Mile Fun Run again held before the main race (with enough time for them to finish and make it onboard the spectator boats). This will be held on the main/start finish field.
