Fun Run 2015

Annual YMCA Charity Fun Run – Sunday 3 May 2015 – Priory Park

The 16th Annual YMCA East Surrey Fun Run and Reigate and Banstead Festival of Sport will be joining forces in Priory Park, Reigate on Sunday 3 May to bring you a day full of activities and fun for the whole family.  

The Fun Run was set up to encourage people to get FIT, raise FUNDS for our vital community work and have FUN!  There are races for both adults and children of all ages and abilities and the Festival of Sport will be hosting a number of top local clubs who will be showcasing their sports for you to try out.  The YMCA Fun Run has grown over the years and is now a major event attracting over 1500 runners.  The main aim is participation and this year we are hoping that whatever your fitness level you will join us!


Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of your race and 20 minutes if you are collecting your number.

The 1 mile races use the same start and finish as the 5 mile but stay within the park following a flat route including a clockwise lap of the pond. Free refreshments are available for all runners. 

Fancy dress

We love any excuse for fancy dress, so come along dressed up as your favourite character and make the day even more fun. We’ll be giving out prizes for the best fancy dress in each race, so make sure you stand out from the crowd!
