Race open for entries

ENTRIES have opened for the 34th Henley half marathon later this year.

The event will take place on Sunday, October 9, together with the Henley Standard 10km race.

The Rotary Club of Henley Bridge, which organises the event, hopes to have 2,000 runners in the main event and 600 in the 10km one.

The half marathon course starts at Henley Rugby Club and follows a route over Henley Bridge, along Remenham Lane to the Flower Pot pub at Aston, back along the towpath and over the bridge. The runners then go along Marlow Road, up Icehouse Lane to Fawley, down Fawley Hill and then back to the start via Fair Mile.

The 10km course also starts at the rugby club and follows the second section of the course from Marlow Road.

The beneficiaries include the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, a number of local charities and Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign. Last year, almost £25,000 was raised.

Entrants are also welcome to raise money for their own causes.

The cost of entry is £25 for the main race and £20 for the 10km. All runners will be chip timed and all finishers will receive a medal and a goody bag.
