For the past 33 years the Rotary Club of Henley Bridge have organised the Henley Half Marathon and 10K runs and this year’s event takes place on Sunday 8 October.
This event raises over £20,000 and all of the money is used to support over 25 local organisations. They recently gave Camp Mohawk in Wargrave £2,000 for a new boiler to help with their wonderful work with children with special needs and their families.
The Half Marathon course takes runners through the town, over Henley Bridge and into the countryside, returning along the Thames towpath; back through town centre and out to “heartbreak hill” the famous mile long climb seen as a personal challenge by many runners. Following the descent a flat run back to the Rugby Club. The 10K course comprises the second loop of the main half marathon course taking runners through quiet country lanes.
