'Original and best and still going strong' say organisers of Running4Women Windsor 10K as they prepare for a record turnout for the 11th staging of the event on Saturday 26 September. Running4Women organised one of the first women-only events in the UK back in 2005, and their races have been growing in size and popularity ever since.
Club runners will join charity participants and a big contingent of first-timers on the start line in Windsor Great Park for a run set in stunning surroundings and offering fantastic views of Windsor Castle. The race starts and finishes on The Long Walk.
The event village is in Windsor Great Park and offers a range of entertainment and catering options for the whole family. There is free onsite parking near the race village throughout the weekend, making it easy for friends and family to come along and cheer you on.
You can also sign up as a team of friends, and mothers and daughters can enter the Generation Game Challenge with prizes available for the fastest teams (lowest aggregate times) as well as for the best fancy dress.
Entry fees are £16.50 for UKA members and £18.50 for unaffiliated runners, and entry is open now. Go to the event website for further details and to secure your place. Charity places are available through a number of good causes including CLIC Sargent, Cancer Research UK, Help for Heroes.
The Running4Women Windsor 10K is part of the Windsor Running Festival which includes the sold out Windsor Half Marathon on Sunday 27 September as well as the 2.5 mile Glynn Shefford Memorial Run aimed at runners aged ten and above, and the Sprite Sprint run where five to nine year olds run 40m.
Public places for the Windsor Half Marathon are sold out but you can still enter through one of the official charity partners. More details at the event website.
