Prudential RideLondon: the world’s greatest festival of cycling
A true legacy of the 2012 Games
Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in 2013, Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling. T
While the Mayor and his agencies are the custodians of Prudential RideLondon, the event is managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP), a partnership between London Marathon Events Limited (owners and operators of the London Marathon since 1981) and SweetSpot Group Limited (operators of the Tour of Britain).
LSCP works with Transport for London (TfL) and London & Partners (the Mayor’s official promotional organisation) to coordinate the significant technical requirements for the event and work in partnership with London Boroughs, Surrey County Council , The Royal Parks , London Legacy Development Corporation and British Cycling , who are each integral to the delivery of the event.
The Thames Marathon, now in its 10th year, is a 14km long-distance challenge swim from Henley-on-Thames to Marlow. It covers a beautiful stretch of the Thames and has become one of open water swimming’s most prestigious marathon swims.
The swim is split into 4 sections. Swimmers will be required to exit the water at the 3 locks (Hambledon at 4km, Hurley at 10km and Temple at 11.8km) where food and energy snacks will be available.
Participants have the choice of waves – the first four waves will be for faster swimmers wanting to compete against the clock, with those expecting to finish in 3hrs 30 minutes swimming in the first wave. The remaining waves are for those that don’t necessarily want to race, but prefer to enjoy the experience at their own pace.
The manageable chunks make this event do-able for many types of swimmer.
A run early on Saturday morning can set you up for the weekend. Meet in Mill Road Arundel by the lower Castle gates. As an early start no need to arrive very early, but the runners cater off at 7:30am.
A variety of routes up into Arundel Park, or across to Rewell Woods or a run out to Warningcamp and Angmering Park. As a minimum the route is usually up to 10 miles but for those undertaking spring marathons the mileage does tend to rise through the Autumn heading up towards the South Downs. The route is ideal for some undulations and usually is off road unless the weather conspires against us.
All abilities welcome. Upon return to Arundel a number will stay for a coffee (and something to eat if a sufficiently high mileage has been undertaken) so you may wish to bring a dry top and some money. This offer is not obligatory if you fancy a run, yet would prefer to return straight home
A great way to start the weekend, have you tried it yet?
Enjoy the excitement of night running in the South Downs in the Summer.
Starting with a signed route for a couple of miles within the country park, then on the public way-marked South Downs Way, with multiple water/feed stations along the way, this is a great way to run at night with others on a course that is simple to follow.
Even though this is a summer event, it can still get cold at night, so please wear or carry appropriate clothing. In addition, all participants will be required to use a head-torch with spare batteries, and recommended to take a backup light source and carry a mobile phone.
There is no time cutoff for this event. You may take as long as you like to finish it, but as a rough guide, we would expect the fastest finishers to be back just after Midnight and everyone to be finished by 4AM, and for those that expect to take over 8 hours, there may be an early start at 8PM.
After the finish, relax undercover with chilli and bread rolls (including fully vegan option) before heading home.
