JOIN US FOR THE DORNEY LAKE MARATHON ON SUNDAY 3RD OCTOBER 2021.

The Dorney Lake Autumn Marathon will take place on Sunday 3rd October 2021. This is an ideal venue to complete your London Marathon Virtual run on one of the fastest courses in the country. The course has an international certificate of accuracy, so your result will count for Good for Age and qualifying times for international marathons.

Dorney Lake, situated near the village of Dorney in Buckinghamshire, is a purpose built rowing lake with grounds that are a perfect backdrop to running as well as rowing. The flat course is ideal for a chip timed personal best over the Marathon distance with 63% of runners surveyed in 2020 achieving a personal best on this course.

With events around the country being cancelled we are pleased to be able to give you the opportunity to complete the marathon distance in a small scale, socially distanced environment.
