Burnham Beeches Half Marathon and 10K 12 August 2018

The Burnham Beeches Half Marathon and 10k offers a choice of two distances, both on a mix of closed roads and hard surfaced woodland paths through the cool shade of the Burnham Beeches ancient woodland in South Bucks. It’s the perfect setting for a summer half marathon or 10k.

We will be starting the half marathon at 9.30 and the 10k this year. Please allow plenty of time to walk from the main car park which is a 20 – 25 minute walk away, unless you were an early entrant that received a VIP parking space at the school (this will have been confirmed via email if you received one). As we have record entry numbers please car share where possible.

There will be water on the course but we are trying to reduce our use of plastic so we ask that as many people as possible please bring their own water in reusable bottles or wear a hydration vest.

We have a fantastic chunky medal for all finishers, plus a quality technical shirt with the names of the first 1,000 entrants printed on the back.

You can enjoy a well earned dip after the race with special access to the Caldicott School swimming pool (access may be restricted depending on demand). And this year we even have a Punch & Judy show – so please feel free to bring the family along!

There will be a banana, cereal bar and bag of crisps for you at the end. There will be a photographer on the course – thanks to Chris Drew for once again offering to do this. Pictures will be available to download free of charge after the event.

A final couple of points to remember – there are no dogs allowed within the school grounds, and no smoking please in the main car park as this is a field with very dry grass and we are conscious of the fire risk.

A pre race email will be sent to entrants a week or so before the event, and VIP parking passes will be sent out around the same time.

ROUTE OF THE HALF MARATHON

RUNNER’S WORLD REVIEWS – THANKS FOR THE GREAT FEEDBACK!

“I have previously taken part in the Half Marathon at Burnham Beeches. This was my first time at running the 10Kms – great – would definitely do it again. Challenging (who put those hills in the way !!!) but very enjoyable, friendly event. :-)”

“My first ever big organised event and I really enjoyed it! Usually run on my own or with one or two work colleagues, so it was a real buzz to set off with hundreds of other runners. Lovely course through the woods, plenty of shade – ideal for August – a few gentle hills but nothing too challenging, very well organised and marshalled. Loads of encouragement to keep you going! If I ever step from 10k to HM I’d like to do it here.”

“Excellent race, beautiful scenery, great organisation. Will definitely do it again.”

“Scenic 2 lap course (one lap for the 10k), lots of excellent marshalls and spectators, plenty of shade and water stops to see off the summer heat. Mostly on road with some easy trail paths… first lap is full of lovely undulating hills, which feel like steep mountains by the second lap! Some brilliant bonuses, like a swimming pool at the end, and your name on the race shirt.”

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.

LATEST INFORMATION FROM OUR FACEBOOK PAGE

Hi folks
We are aware that some people amongst the last 100 or so finishers of the half marathon weren’t able to get the right size finisher shirt as all the L and XL shirts had run out.

We are having some more made that should cover the number of people we think were affected.

If you missed out - please private message us or reply to one of the emails we have sent you about the event.

You will then need to post us a stamped addressed envelope and we will get one out to when they arrive.

First come first served once we have checked finishing times to make sure they go to people finishing after the point when they ran out.

We are really sorry for what happened - hopefully this helps resolve the issue.

If you have already contacted us about it you don’t need to send an sae - but useful if you could message us anyway so we can confirm you’re on the list.

In case you’re not aware....

It’s event #1 for the new Marlow parkrun this Saturday.

We are spoilt for choice for great parkrun locations locally - but a stretch along the Thames path to Temple weir and back is going to take some beating!
