20 October 2024
Very popular event with many repeat entrants. The course takes runners through the town, over Henley Bridge and into the countryside, returning along the Thames towpath; back through town centre and out to "heartbreak hill" the famous mile long climb seen as a personal challenge by many runners. Following the descent a flat run back to the Rugby Club.

We use road closures at the start to ensure safe passage for all runners through the town centre.
