The 27 March 2022 Marathon Prep event has now been cancelled
Bring out your best marathon by preparing thoroughly for your big race day.
Our Marathon Prep offers the perfect race day rehearsal and long run training in one event with options over distances of 16, 20, or 24 miles.
Scheduled 3 weeks before the traditional April London Marathon date, we'll provide the ideal conditions to practice your pacing, fuelling and endurance amongst hundreds of other runners to help you head into your marathon feeling prepared and confident.
Set at the spectacular, flat, and smooth-surfaced Dorney Lake near Windsor, the course takes you around the perimeter of the water.
With fuel and water stations to keep you going. pacers, mile markers and chip-timed results will make it as easy as possible to get your pacing right so that you can focus on your run and practice refuelling and rehydrating during a race.
You'll also receive a Marathon Prep medal, replenishing food and drink and your chip-timed result as soon as you've crossed the line.
