When you both love the chase, you can only come together. We’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Clapham Chasers to bring you this year’s edition of the Thames Riverside 20. TR20 is a paced 20 mile fast and flat race. It’s perfect prep for spring marathons as well as a great opportunity to establish an early season baseline. Entries close on Sunday, 18th February 2018 at 11:59:00 pm GMT, so enter today to secure your spot.
Paced 20 mile race along the River Thames Towpath on Sunday 4th March 2018. Start at 0800 Hrs. Hosted by Clapham Chasers Running & Triathlon Club, sponsored by SportPursuit.
Flat, traffic-free and mostly off-road route along the south side of the River Thames. From Race HQ (start and finish) at Bishop’s Park, runners cross Putney Bridge and trace a 10 mile out and back route to Richmond. The terrain varies and is uneven in stretches. Primarily gravel with mud in places and limited lengths of footpath. Normal road or trail running shoes would be ideal.
Each mile point will be marked. In the event of unexpected maintenance or flooding on the route, well-marked short diversions may be introduced.
Runners will need to keep left at all times since the course will be open to the public who retain right of way. For Mile One and at several other points along the course, boathouse users will have priority and runners must give way. More detailed information about the course and the day can be found here.
