Organisers of the Windsor Running Festival have confirmed that the half marathon has completely sold all 6,000 available places. The 33rd Windsor Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 27 September, and boasts a picturesque course with fantastic views of Windsor Castle. The start and finish are on The Long Walk, and the 13.1 miles are run on traffic free roads around Windsor Great Park.
The only way runners can now enter the iconic race is through one of the official charities associated with the Windsor Running Festival, including CLIC Sargent, Cancer Research UK and Help for Heroes. Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and The National Brain Appeal are the bronze charity partners, and Alzheimer’s Society, Childlife, CRY, Daisy’s Dream and Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation are copper charity Weekend partners.
Race director Peter Hier commented: “Public places for the Windsor Half are now sold out. We are working with some great charities and limited charities places are still available. We would urge anyone who hasn’t signed up yet to get in touch with their chosen charity as soon as possible in order to secure their place. The Windsor Half Marathon is one of the most prestigious events in the British sporting calendar set in stunning surroundings, and it attracts runners of all levels from around the world year after year. We are looking forward to seeing you in September!”
