A race presented by the Wimbledon Windmilers Running & Triathlon Club
Hello again! We hope you are faring well. As we have had to cancel our Quarter Marathon race this year we would like to offer you a freebie virtual one instead! To take part you can enter online using the link below. Run, walk and/or jog 6.55 miles (or 10.55k) on trail, coastline, road or anyway that’s permitted over the autumn from Saturday 26 September to 29 November. This event is for all abilities and can include your children if they’re up for it.
You can submit your time using the link below and we’ll send you a list of the results.
We are offering a free medal, (yes a free medal!) to everyone who participates, and they are beautiful. We’ll be organizing a (Covid-19 secure) medal collection for participants who complete the race (or via post if you live far). There are no prizes this year, sadly.
Please ensure you keep to current Government guidelines on social distancing when racing/jogging/walking or running this event.
Tell us how your event went. Send us some photos of your race/run to ‘QuarterMarathon@windmilers.org.uk’ and we’ll put them on our website. Or you can post them on our
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/windmilersquartermarathon
And finally, we still want to support our nominated charities so any donations you can make (from £3+) would be much appreciated. stem4 and Wimbledon Guild have been working hard to support people’s mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are also keen to support Wimbledon and Putney Commons who do a great job maintaining this amazing woodland space which is normally where we have our QM race.
Here are the links to the charities’ donation pages:

This quarter marathon race replaces the Jim Braben Memorial 10k race organised by the Wimbledon Windmilers in the past, but is still very much in his memory as one of our Founders.
Race Directors are: Chiara Samele and Ralph Gilbert. Contact us via email if you have any queries: QuarterMarathon@windmilers.org.uk
