Run Reigate Half Marathon

Sunday 17 September 2017

Online bookings have now closed for this event as we have limited places available. Please contact the Challenge Events team if you are interested in taking part in this event and supporting YMCA East Surrey.

Run Reigate’s Half Marathon and 10K are single lap, closed road courses taking you through the beautiful Surrey countryside.

Run Reigate is a community event held in aid of a variety of charity partners, which has raised more than £500,000 since 2014. YMCA East Surrey is thrilled to be one of Run Reigate’s Charity Partners for 2017.

Run with a YMCA charity place

We are looking for ten determined people to take part in Run Reigate and be part of Team YMCA. If you have never done a half marathon or are keen to support your local charity, this is the event for you. We will train you, support you and ensure you are ready to take on the challenge of the summer. Every mile you run and pound you raise will change the lives of vulnerable people in your community, make every step count!

We can offer you:

  • Reduced half marathon entry fee of £20 (£200 minimum sponsorship)
  • Bespoke YMCA running vest
  • Dedicated fundraising support and advice
  • Local training sessions leading up to the event
  • Entry into the YMCA hospitality tent on the day.

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.

About Run Reigate

The Run Reigate event village contains a bag drop, warm-up area, toilets, massage tent and live music space. The races themselves have staggered start times, chip timing, pacers, en-route toilets, energy gels and regular water stations.

At the finish you’ll receive a Brooks technical T-shirt, medal, water and a banana. Post-event you can enjoy the food village, where you can refuel at one of the delicious food stalls.

Run Reigate’s unique Kids Race is a cumulative half marathon for school-aged children. Completing 12 miles prior to the race day, participants will run the final 1.1 mile on race day in Priory Park. Kids can also just run for fun if they prefer!
