Unlike the beer at Windsor Brewery this course is flat and fast. starting and finishing at Windsor & Eton Brewery the course takes in views of the river Thames, and Windsor Castle.
For well over 300 years, Windsor Ales were famous amongst rich and poor alike. On St Georges day 2010, seventy-nine years after the closure of Windsor’s last brewery, four friends came together to bring brewing back to the heart of these two famous Berkshire towns.
Since then Windsor & Eton Brewery have been producing a variety of great quality cask, keg and bottled beer – guardsman (best bitter) being the first. they have gone on to produce over 40 different cask and keg beers, sold nationally as well as locally here in Windsor.
Running along the towpaths of the River Thames you’ll wind your way along the river, before turning back towards Windsor to run through and alongside the great western railway viaduct designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. as you rejoin the river you’ll have great views over the town centre & Windsor Castle.
For a short run thats a lot of history.
When your race is done and you cross that finish line you’ll be able to enjoy a free post race pint straight from Windsor Brewery, as well as a selection of local food & live music.
