Starting in the famous Ancient Market Place, runners will cross over Kingston Bridge and head up the iconic three mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames. The race then reaches the magnificent Hampton Court Palace before continuing through Thames Ditton and back towards Kingston Market Place. Here is the finish for the 8 mile race. The 16 milers will continue to run a second lap before crossing the line.
Both courses have been officially measured as registered distances by the Association of UK Course Measurers.
