Dorney Lake Marathon Prep 2021 - Sunday 28 March Sports


Bring out your best marathon in Spring 2021 by preparing thoroughly for your race day.

Scheduled 4 weeks before the Virgin Money London Marathon and conveniently before other major marathon events both in the UK and internationally, 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 placed every 2 miles. 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.

Subject to availability, we expect pacers to be running the first 16 miles, clearly marked with target marathon times between 2h45m and 5h30m.

Not sure on which distance you should run? Don't worry - all three of 16, 20 or 24 miles have the same entry fee, and you can change your mind at any time - if it's before Sunday 30 August, you can drop us an email, or after that, just tell us at the event - even if you change your mind mid-race and decide to stop one or two laps sooner than you planned.

Plus, you'll receive a Marathon Prep medal, goody bag with replenishing food and drink, and your chip-timed result as soon as you've crossed the line.

Don't miss the chance to prepare for a great marathon race day - take this opportunity to rehearse your:

race day nutrition
race preparation and travel
running in a busy race situation with a marked out course that is new to you
running in all of your marathon race kit
race rehydration and refuelling
recovery and strengthening.

From as little as £23, you can't afford to not prepare for your big day. Due to Dorney Lake capacity and ensuring a great, safe race experience, places are limited. Enter online now.
