SATURN - The Nearly But Not Quite London Marathon

3rd Oct 2021

Further information

Come join us for the Nearly But Not London Marathon on 3rd October 2021. This is a great event if you are missed out on a London Marathon place or if you are running the Virtual London Marathon. We have a fantastic medal, which we believe is better than the real thing!! Not only that, but our aid table is outstanding and much better than you would get in London.rnrnThe event is an 8hr time challenge event, although we want as many runners to achieve the marathon distance as possible. However, as with all our events, you can choose our distance. If you want to do less then you can finish after 3.28 miles or you can keep on running and see how far you can go in the full 8 hrs.rnrnThe course will also be our course out towards Sonning, before returning to the aid table (3.28 miles). We are then going to send runners towards Caversham before returning to the Aid Table (a further 3.28 mile lap). If you complete 4 of these, it is a marathon distance!rnrnWith the aid table available every 3.28 miles, it means you have plenty of drink and food to help you achieve your goals.rnrnWe welcome runners of all abilities and if you prefer to walk then you are welcome at our events. As long as you complete a lap each hour, you should be able to walk the marathon distance. We will have to strictly limit the number of entries, so please sign up quickly!
