Routes

All races are well marshalled and start on the grass to the south of Reigate Priory School. The main adult race follows a 5 mile loop around country lanes to the west of Reigate before returning to the finish at the start point in Priory Park with a water station en route. 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.

Fundraising

Money raised from all our events this year will help us create a brand new, disability sports, fitness and wellbeing facility, designed to inspire and support people of all ages and ability to be more active and healthy.

This will be a centre of excellence for families, those suffering from learning and physical disabilities, people with emotional and mental health issues, the elderly and people recovering from chronic illness. The purpose-built, fully accessible facility will offer a wide programme of disability sports, rehabilitation and preventative health activities, delivered by specialist, friendly staff and inspiring volunteers. Our aim is to create a wonderful culture of inclusivity, where everyone feels welcome and is empowered to create healthy, active and fulfilling lives.
