You wouldn't catch me doing it...but for others (my husband for example!) this is their idea of fun, a 13 mile run round the beautiful Windsor Great Park, starting and finishing at the Long Walk, taking in a couple of laps of the Park and passing Smith's Lawn and the Polo Ground.
Annual event every September
Equipment: Your feet and a good pair of running shoes
Somehow, no matter what place I pick, the hubby always seem to find some kind of insane swimming related activity and this trip was no exception. On our way back from Euromeet in Macedonia, we stopped by London for a couple of nights and he found a swim race in Windsor in the Thames River. 2011 was the 2nd year for the event, there were 950m, 1.9km & 3.8km distances. Unfortunately the weather was quite chilly and they started the race early so all I got to see was the finish
Equipment: You'd be crazy not to wear a wetsuit in the Thames
Hovercraft racing,hell it must be fun!
I came across this while looking for other stuff but will certainly be trying it.

The best way to see this delightful town is on foot.
There are some hilly areas, but they arent too bad... there is a wonderful little waterfront area and the more historical and quaint part.
I walk around here a lot... often when I have time to kill (waiting for the train), and have discovered so much more because of this.
It doesnt make sense to travel roudn here by car, if you travel here by car, best would be to park it and discover Windsor ON FOOT :)
Watch football or just visit the club.
