The traditional Kingston 8-mile loop is a single lap with the 16-mile runners completing a second circuit, and the twenty milers following two laps plus an additional four miles on the river towpath in North Kingston.

The timing of the event makes it ideal for those runners preparing for a spring marathon such as Brighton, Manchester or London.

The start and finish are both within the famous ancient marketplace providing an exciting start and an atmospheric finish, with plenty of stalls offering a variety of foods, and many local restaurants and pubs for those looking for more leisurely post-race relaxation. Professionally organised, there are plenty of friendly and experienced marshals to guide you safely around the course.

Well organised event, great marshals along the way and it was lovely to run along the river towards Hampton Court. Loved the design of the medal and the goodie bag had a good selection of products. Serena
