Regret cash only, no credit cards. Please show your race licence at registration.

Alexandra Gardens, Barry Avenue, Windsor SL4 3HY

No other event in the world can compare with the historical backdrop of Windsor Castle, Eton College and the majestic River Thames. The river swim is followed by a bike course that takes in a number of villages around beautiful Berkshire and returns through Windsor Great Park. The multi-lap run course winds around the Great Castle, over Eton Bridge and along Eton High Street, passing famous Eton College. The event takes in 900 years of British history!

Windsor is very easy to get to, being only 15 minutes away from London's Heathrow Airport and only 30 minutes from central London. There are also very fast road and rail links into the centre of London.

Getting to Windsor by Car
Windsor is just 30 miles west of London and is easily accessible via the major motorway networks. From M3 exit at junction 3 (bagshot); from M4 exit at junction 6 for Windsor; from M25 exit at junction 13 (Egham) and from M40 exit at junction 4 (Marlow) or junction 2 (Beaconsfield). Long stay car parks are located at Romney Lock, King Edward VII Avenue and Alexandra Gardens. All are cheaper than the more central (shopper) car parks and are less than a 10 minute walk to Windsor Castle.

Getting to Windsor by Train
Windsor is served by two train stations, Central and Riverside. Both are situated within a few minutes walk of Windsor Castle. First Great Western operates services from London Paddington. Change at Slough on to the branch line that links with Windsor & Eton Central Station. South West Trains operates direct services from London Waterloo to Windsor & Eton Riverside Station. Journey time is approximately 55 minutes. Please check train times for the early Sunday (approx 6am) start.

VitaCoco240Keep hydrated!

Staying hydrated is crucial for achieving peak performance. Vita Coco coconut water promotes rehydration as well as refuelling as it provides carbohydrate as well as fluid.

Before exercise, your main priority is ensuring you are hydrated to have the best chance of putting in your best performance. During exercise, there are no hard and fast rules about how much to drink but, 400-800ml per hour will prevent dehydration and overhydration. After exercise, the sooner you start to replace the fluid the sooner you will recover. So make drinking your priority immediately after exercise.
