About the event

The perfect marathon training run! The Kingston Breakfast Run is back for another year with Lidl at its helm. Starting and finishing in the historic Kingston-upon-Thames market square and taking in the river down to Hampton Court, the 20.1 and 16.2 mile routes are perfect preparation for your marathon and the 8.2 mile race is a perfect step up from the traditional 10k distance.

Completing the long runs in marathon training can be a psychological battle, however our Human Race Pacers will once again be on hand to allow you to test your pace over a longer distance, or to help you hit this distance for the first time as part of a marathon training plan. Pacers will be available between 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 minutes per mile.
