The route is a beautiful, low key jaunt, along the River Thames from Walton on Thames to Hampton Court and back. 4 laps for the full marathon distance.
If there’s something we like here at Phoenix Running (if you hadn’t noticed) it’s a BIG medal. We also like to collect our race numbers from events that we run in ourselves. When you’ve run a marathon or two with your race number flapping in the wind, it somehow feels right for it to be part of things. So that got us thinking – What about a race number that actually becomes part of your finishers’ medal....... and there you have it – the first race number / medal combo.
Each day is a separate event and you get one of our classic PHOENIX finishers medal if you just do one of the days. But if you complete both marathons, then on the second day your finishers’ medal will be the MEGA– It’s a Numbers Game Medal at a whopping 220m x 180mm x 5mm thick.
This is a picturesque out-and-back, lapped course with no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
This event is fully sanctioned by the 100 Marathon Club.
Places will be strictly limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.
