Hampton Court Half Marathon
Giggs Hill Green, Thames Ditton, Sunday 26th February 2023
Quicksilver Running’s flagship event celebrates its tenth year in 2023. One of South West London’s major running events, the Hampton Court Half Marathon is highly rated as preparation for a Spring marathon or a major distance race in its own right. The 2023 race takes place 8 weeks before the Brighton Marathon and 9 weeks before the TCS London Marathon, making it an ideal target race in the training build up to these events.
The Quicksilver race is the original Hampton Court Half Marathon and is run over a fast, flat and visually interesting course that borders the river-side grounds of the magnificent Hampton Court Palace to the South West of London. King Henry VIII and his Tudor entourage will be there to cheer everyone on!
Runners enjoy an initial closed road loop around the picturesque village of Thames Ditton, pass through historic Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames ancient marketplace, follow the iconic 3 mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames, and reach the magnificent Hampton Court Palace after 10 miles. The route follows closed roads, pavement, pedestrian/cycle track, riverside way, and tarmac paths through parks and is well recognised for its PB potential.
All finishers will receive our super bespoke race medal once crossing the finish line.
PLUS free race photos. An amazing free package of race photos of YOU, worth £19.50, included in the price of your entry. Professional Photographers on the course will take pics of all competitors, and after the race you can access your personal portfolio and download all, or just the ones you like.
