RUNNER’S WORLD REVIEW – OVERALL SCORE 81%

SOME BURNHAM BEECHES HALF RUNNER COMMENTS

“This is a great 2 lap course through the woodlands of Burnham Beaches. The course is generally flat with only minor uphills, which are not too difficult. Burnham Beaches is a great area for running and with some great marshaling and support it makes out to be a fine Half Marathon.”

“Excellent race – full marks 🙂 I took 5 minutes off the time I ran here last year so that’s obviously influencing my view of the event, but there is nothing bad to say about it as it’s all very well organised, has plenty of water stops, is a nice 2-lap route so encourages spectators (there is also a café in the Beeches that is near enough to race HQ), there is a very nice medal, has very supportive and enthusiastic marshals at all junctions.”

“A great day for summer running On a great day for summer running this lovely scenic course has plenty of ups and downs. Well-organised and marshalled by Burnham Joggers and, where I was running, a friendly bunch of runners. Never chatted so much on the way round a run.”

“Fantastic race with a great atmosphere thanks to enthusiastic marshalls and route on closed scenic roads”

“Spot on & still very good It`s a fine event. Course is excellent, parking is good (the walk eases off the legs), the use of the pool is just great. Well done. ”

ABOUT BURNHAM JOGGERS AND THE HALF MARATHON

The first Burnham Beeches Half Marathon was an off-road affair on the Portman Estate, over a course that included various obstacles including stiles! It was held on the 9th September 1980 and the winner was Graham Patton of Massey Ferguson in a time of 1:12:53. 1st female runner was Jill Standerwick of Porton Camp AC in 1:32:22. 346 runners competed. It is believed that the course may have been a bit short!

The following year the race HQ moved to Caldicot School, with a course through and around Burnham Beeches. Although there have been at least two course changes over the years, the modern event follows the same, successful, formula but now has a measurement certificate!

Burnham Joggers AC was one of the early wave of running clubs that became popular in the 1970s. The club meets every Tuesday and Thursday evening at Huntswood Golf Club, Burnham, heading out for runs in and around the village of Burnham. In the summer we are privileged to have access to the National Trust owned grounds of the Cliveden Estate and, of course, the beautiful, traffic-free, lanes of Burnham Beeches.

In addition the Half Marathon, the club hosts the Cliveden Cross Country just after Christmas and a private 5k event for local clubs in the spring, also at Caldicott School. Profits generated from these events are donated to local charities chosen by members. Each year some £5-10,000 are given to good causes by the club.

Twice a year the club hosts a beginners course. From zero to 5k in 8 weeks is the promise. Lead by members who are qualified running coaches, many graduates from this course go on to become members and make running a regular part of their lives.
