Final preparations for Pharmalink Maidenhead Half Marathon

It is time to start warming up as thousands of people get set for the Pharmalink Maidenhead Half Marathon on Sunday, September 16.

Entries to the race have already surpassed last year with 2,500 runners set to put on their trainers and take part in the 13.1 mile race.

Pre-registration for the half marathon closes on Saturday. For those that miss the deadline, entries will still be accepted on the day.

Organiser Claire Donald, of Purple Patch Running, said preparations are going well.

"We are very happy indeed, it's going to be a good day," she said.

"We're hoping for sunshine and a nice smooth race."

Runners will start the race at 9.30am from the town hall in St Ives Road before racing through Boulters Lock and into Cookham, then returning to the High Street.

Sponsors include Pharmalink Consulting, 2XU, Gu, Handy Moves, La Roche Health and Fitness, Newton Running, Fiat and Fiat Professional and the Maidenhead Advertiser.

All cash raised will go towards the Link Foundation.
