Further information

The race HQ is the YMCA Hawker Centre, Lower Ham Road, Kingston-Upon-Thames, KT2 5BH. The start time for the marathon is at 10.00am sharp and 10.30am sharp for the half marathon, at the YMCA Hawker Centre HQ (Kingston) and both events will ?nish back the HQ, with the intention of the staggered starts being to ease the congestion on the Thames Path trail. The marathon course starts just outside the HQ, near the Thames Path. The out / back route proceeds from the HQ and runs along the Thames Path past the Boaters Arms pub, out towards the far side of Canbury Gardens where the course then loops around at this marshalled turning point, returning past the race HQ and proceeding all the way along the Thames Path as far as the Barn Elms Rowing Club (Barnes) Aid Station. Marathon runners will then turnaround here repeating the same route in reverse, so returning along the Thames Path bypassing the race HQ again to the far side of Canbury Gardens which is the final turnaround point for this last 1.9 mile out / back section, and completion of the marathon course at race HQ. The half marathon proceeds from the HQ and runs in the opposite direction initially from the full marathon out along the Thames Path to the Aid Station at the Kew Gardens car park which is the half marathon marshalled turnaround point, returning along the Thames Path bypassing the race HQ towards Canbury Gardens where the course turns just past the Boaters Inn pub to return in reverse direction finishing back at the race HQ.
