Celebrate everyone's favourite baking programme with our 'Great British Bake Run' and earn yourself an amazing themed medal. This is a 6 hour timed event where you can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of a 3.28 mile, 5.3km out and back, course along the beautiful River Thames as you wish within the 6 hour limit. We welcome all runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap will earn a fabulous cake themed medal (and let's face it, everyone loves cake...why else do we run?!)! Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit!
For those runners who choose to run 4 laps or more, you will also earn Saturn Running half marathon, marathon or ultra pin which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The course is along the Thames River and a mixture of path and trail. The course is flat and fast and is a truly beautiful course that follows the River Thames through picturesque scenery and nature reserve.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles. The toilets are situated in the Wokingham Waterside Centre which is available for our runners use from 8.30am and for the entire event. There is also a small café and changing / showering facilities situated within the centre should you wish to use them. There is free road parking.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out. If you wish to run with someone under the age of 18, please contact us directly.
