The Windsor Castle 10-Hour - and a 2 and 5 hour option! - is at Windsor Castle Park in Smithfield, VA. This is your chance to get in some great summer heat training on a 3 mile trail with about 150 ft gain per loop!
Want to run, but not 10 hours? Try the Mini Windsor (2 Hours) or Half Windsor (5 Hours)! You can also run a fast single lap of 3 miles!
Come out and race the course to see how many miles you can get or just enjoy time on your feet and getting some nice miles walking and running. Stay the whole 10 hours or just part of the time.
This is a low-key event, but it is chip timed.
Runners are able to set up chairs or tents (no larger than 10x10) close to the trail.
Solo OR Team Option
There is a solo runner option and a team option. No additional cost to field a team of up to 6 runners. You can register as a solo runner and switch to a team later. To field a team you need a team captain and a team name (family friendly name, please).
There are no refunds if you cancel your registration.

Although the loop is only 3 miles, it is June so it’ll be hot and most likely very humid. All runners are strongly encouraged to have a hydration device while running. There is no mid-course water station. The trail goes through both shaded areas as well as open spaces.
The loop is 3 miles and covers a very easy, navigable trail loop. The trail is a smooth, groomed trail that’s packed dirt with some small, packed gravel in areas, but mostly dirt all the way around. There are two street crossings, however there is very minimal traffic in this area. The course will be marked. It is an open park so there will be others on the course.
Access the 2023 course map here. The course runs counter clockwise on the highlighted portion of the map. Currently the tent area is south of the PARKing location on the map, starting at the large red X. If the start location and parking area changes we will update the map and notify the runners.
There are awards for the top women and men finishers, along with a home-made finisher's medal for all runners.
Awards for the top 3 teams with most miles, too. These will be handed out immediately after the run ends. We do not ship. If there is a tie in miles, the award will go to the runner who ran the miles the quickest.
