THE VENUE

 
FOR WELL OVER 300 YEARS, WINDSOR ALES WERE FAMOUS AMONGST RICH AND POOR ALIKE. ON ST GEORGES DAY 2010, SEVENTY-NINE YEARS AFTER THE CLOSURE OF WINDSOR’S LAST BREWERY, FOUR FRIENDS CAME TOGETHER TO BRING BREWING BACK TO THE HEART OF THESE TWO FAMOUS BERKSHIRE TOWNS. SINCE THEN WINDSOR & ETON BREWERY HAVE BEEN PRODUCING A VARIETY OF GREAT QUALITY CASK, KEG AND BOTTLED BEER – GUARDSMAN (BEST BITTER) BEING THE FIRST. THEY HAVE GONE ON TO PRODUCE OVER 40 DIFFERENT CASK AND KEG BEERS, SOLD NATIONALLY AS WELL AS LOCALLY HERE IN WINDSOR.
 
 

THE RUN

WHICH CHALLENGE WILL YOU PICK?

HALF PINT
5KM RUN

WALK, RUN OR DANCE YOUR WAY AROUND OUR 5K COURSE. RUNNING ALONG THE TOWPATHS OF THE RIVER THAMES YOU’LL WIND YOUR WAY ALONG THE RIVER, BEFORE TURNING BACK TOWARDS WINDSOR TO RUN THROUGH AND ALONGSIDE THE GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY VIADUCT DESIGNED BY ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL. AS YOU REJOIN THE RIVER YOU’LL HAVE GREAT VIEWS OVER THE TOWN CENTRE & WINDSOR CASTLE. FOR A SHORT RUN THATS A LOT OF HISTORY.

FULL PINT
5MI RUN

IN THE MOOD TO TAKE ON A BIGGER CHALLENGE WHY NOT TAKE ON THE FULL 5 MILER. THIS COURSE ADDS ON AN ADDITIONAL FLAT AND FAST SECTION RUNNING ALONGSIDE THE RIVER THAMES OVERLOOKING WINDSOR RACE COURSE AND RETURNING THROUGH SOUTH FIELDS.  THE FASTER THE COURSE THE QUICKER YOU EARN THAT PINT.
