Beat the Boat 2019

Coming back to Windsor and Eton for 2019 is a completely unique 10km trail race for runners of all abilities brought to you by Runface. An an out and back course from Eton & Windsor, you'll be taking on not just other runners, but a target pace boat full of spectators that will be tracking you and trying to beat you back to the finish line. All runners set off together in a traditional race format, with a difference, because just yards from where you start on the Brocas fields in Eton, the 5 Thames Cruise boats will be starting too and they'll be full of your friends and family members ready to cheer you on, as you try to beat the boat.

About the Boats

The 5 boats will be clearly labelled as 40/50/55/60/70 mins respectively. So when entering, its important for you to try and decide which boat you'll be taking on, based on your predicted finish time over the course. Faster runners will be looking to beat the 40 min boat, and would therefore want any supporters to be on-board that one, whereas people running closer to 50 or 60 mins, would be chasing those boats.  

 About the Event

This event is put on by runners, for runners and we'll be trying to ensure that everything we'd expect in a race will be provided. That will include water stations, friendly marshals, clear instructions, excellent facilities and a safe and fun environment that you'd expect when trying to beat several tonnes of river boat in a footrace along the thames path. All finishers will receive a bespoke medal, race themed technical T-shirt, on course support and hopefully a fun and unique morning trying to beat the boat.

New for 2019

This year we'll be having chip timing for all runners in the main race (Chip/Number packs picked up on the day from race registration)

We'll also be adding an optional Kids 1 Mile Fun Run held before the main race (with enough time for them to finish and make it onboard the spectator boats). This will be held on the main/start finish field.
