If you only do one Phoenix event this year, then this is the one!
What can we tell you about it at this stage?
Well, it's our usual low key jaunt along the River Thames from Walton on Thames to Hampton Court and back where runners complete four identical laps for the full marathon distance.
What else can we tell you?
The rest is being kept under a shroud of secrecy for now, but what we will say is - Don't miss this one! You'll just have to trust us on that.
Please Note: the entry fee is expensive, much more expensive than we'd like at just over £50! We vowed not to increase our prices 2016 to 2017 and then again 2017 to 2018, and we haven't, but we have to break that rule for this event ONLY. However, we're confident - really confident - really, really confident that if you love medals, you will love this one!!
Due to the extra-special and bespoke nature of this event, we won't be opening general entry until later in the year, around November and entry will close again at least two months before the event date, so in early April. You won't be able to use a credit to enter this event, including marshal's credits, and you won't be able to transfer your entry to another runner within 2 months of the event date itself. All will become clear towards the end of 2017.
Places will be strictly limited.
Off road trail, the terrain is riverside towpath.
The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route
