Welcome to the Windsor Womens 10k
We will continue to monitor all Covid19 announcements from the Government and RunBritain, the Sports Licencing authority) and act accordingly.
We will inform all entrants as and when any announcements are made and any actions which we may have to take. These will be available on our “Covid19” page on this website.
I entered this event for the simple reason that I saw a picture of the medal on the website and it was gorgeous. But I am so glad I entered. There is far more to this race than a medal (even a stunning one!).
But it is not just these things that make the race special. It is the incredible atmosphere. Women of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities. All united in the most friendly, inclusive race I have ever entered. This was more like one big party than a race.
I was stupid enough to trip over my feet in the last mile, and made a very hard and painful landing. But I was immediately surrounded by lovely ladies, offering, help, support, water, gels, everything. However, I was still determined to get my lovely medal, and I was offered a helping hand for the rest of the race. Later I was patched up efficiently and kindly by the marvellous medical staff.
Altogether a wonderful experience. I’ll be back next year. The words on the website are true:
“It’s More Than a Race – It’s a Community”
Having competed in R4W’s events many times before I knew that this would be a fantastic race. Easy online entry and communication by email and on social media from the organisers right up to the day of the race, and afterwards, were excellent.
This is a slightly challenging 10K with a climb right at the beginning but that’s what makes it so much fun! The scenery all the way round is beautiful and the marshals and Park residents were very encouraging – much appreciated when I was struggling at a couple of points! Water stations located just where needed and the waste zones are a brilliant idea. The run back down to the finish includes a stunning view of Windsor Castle. The spectators along the last couple of kilometres cheered everyone. This event always has fab finishers’ medals and t shirts and this year’s were no exception. Thank you R4W and to all the volunteers involved in making this such a memorable, friendly event, I will definitely be entering again!
