The award-winning Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon & 10K returns to Surrey’s Priory Park on Sunday 16th September 2018 for its fifth anniversary race.
Set up in 2014 by local running enthusiasts as a half marathon, the event grew quickly to include a 10K by 2015 and a cumulative kids’ race by 2016. It is now a firm fixture in the diary for runners young and old, with fantastic community support and a beautiful route through rural Surrey on fully closed roads.
Such has been the success of the event that the Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon won Gold for the UK’s Best Half Marathon (less than 5,000 runners) at The Running Awards 2017, the only independent awards ceremony celebrating the best of running and its culture. This follows its Silver award in the Half Marathon category in 2015.
Voting is now open for The 2018 Running Awards and the Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon has again been shortlisted in the Half Marathon (≤ 5,000) category; voting is quick and easy, requiring only a name and email address.
The event’s single-lap course takes in a combination of picturesque countryside and country lanes, and sees communities of local supporters line up along the route to cheer the runners on.
The 2018 Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon & 10K will kick off with the 10K at 9.00am, followed by the Half Marathon at 9.15am and the first wave of the Canon Kids Race at approximately midday.
The Canon Kids Race is open to young runners aged 4-15 years and, as a cumulative half marathon, is a brilliant way for children to experience the thrill of a big sporting event. The participants run 12 miles in their own time and the final 1.1 miles on race day, with a grand finale to the cheering of hundreds of spectators in Priory Park. All young runners will receive a fantastic medal and technical t-shirt.
Those entering the 2018 Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon & 10K can look forward to a high quality runner experience. The large Event Village will feature a huge bag drop, a warm-up, toilets, massage tent and live music. The races will have staggered start times, chip timing, Xempo pacers, en-route toilets, energy gel and regular water stations.
All finishers will be rewarded with a special edition technical t-shirt, a heavyweight bespoke medal, water and banana. It is a great day out for all the family, with Event, Food and Kids activity villages for everyone to enjoy.
Sponsors for the race include global sports retailer Intersport, digital marketing agency Jellyfish and high performance running brand Brooks.
