Englefield Half Marathon

1/2 Marathon, 10km, 5km with 3-km Kids Run, and Kids Zone with Runners Village.

Sun 5th Sept 2021

Event Info

MMMMM

One of the best kept secrets for runners right next to Reading – and just an hour from London! 

The  Englefield Estate sits on some of the most picturesque land in Berkshire. With a fabulous mix of terrain, all private for runners to enjoy. With a mix of woodland, farmland and wildlife conservation areas.

We’re delighted to host the Englefield Half Marathon at this stunning estate, offering spectacular runs along bridleways and trails that make the most of the natural beauty of the area.

With great facilities and a magnificent spectator-friendly start/finish, you and the family can soak up the atmosphere in the Runners Village, enjoy watching runners cross the finish line whilst listening to music and indulging in good quality catering – from food and great coffee to that well deservered post run beer, G&T or glass of bubbly!

To make it even more of a family day out, there will be lots of activities for kids to do; such as five-a-side football, zorb balls, archery, rock climbing and more. All this delivered by an experienced crew who you can leave your kids with, whilst you enjoy a drink at the bar, along with great food from local caterers.

Numbers are limited, so get in quick to secure your place on the start line.

Race Entry With Coaching

If you’re eager to run your fastest 1/2 marathon, 10km or 5km, or if you’re wanting to successfully complete your first event, our performance coaches will be able to take your running to new heights.

We’re not charging spectators however all spectators need a ticket so we can affectively manage numbers on site.

How Can Coaching Help Me?

Our coaching support will help polarise your training and maintain consistency, taking your running to new heights.

We offer two types of coaching – Group Coaching or 1-2-1 Coaching.

Our approach is focused on two key objectives.

1. Run Faster

Help you to run faster, improving those running speeds and running injury-free.

Established trainers in performance coaching on hand to support you.

2. Starting to Run

Helping you successfully complete your first half, 10km or 5km race, injury-free and as comfortably as possible.

 

Group Coaching, or 1-2-1?

What should I choose?

So this depends on how much focus and support you need. And your ability.

With Group and 1-2-1 Coaching, you’ll have access to a mobile app you’ll need to download. Here we set you the workout plans/programs to follow and we can see how you’re getting on.

With our “Group Coaching” add-on; you’ll be put into a cohort of people, about 15 -20, not too big, about the same level as you, and given a specific training plan tailored to the group, for example – couch to 5km, couch to 10km, or running a 10km sub 40.

With 1-2-1 Coaching, you’ll also be given a plan however this will be then coached and managed on a 1-2-1 basis.

Q

Group or 1-2-1 Con't...

In both scenarios, your coach will be sending you video messages and text messages about the upcoming planned activities, preparation, planning, basic nutrition advice and ask any questions you may have. With the group coaching, the group will have it’s own private area where everyone can message. A bit like a group WhatsApp chat; except this is all on our mobile app.

The idea for the group is everyone can chip in by asking any questions, sharing their experience, and even better – share any photos or videos!

What we’ve found is in a small group of say 15-20 people, it becomes quite motivational and inspirational; there’s a lot in common, and at the event, you’ll actually be able to even meet up for real!

For 1-2-1 Coaching, this tends to be more geared to those already at a certain level needing more specific advice, or a real push!
