With spring just around the corner, the Surrey Half Marathon is nearly here. Whether you’re a runner, spectator or side-line motivator, the Half Marathon is sure to be a great day out. The event will be taking place this Sunday 8th March 2020.
The 13.1 mile run is chip-timed and boasts a marked and measured single loop course, safely guided along fully-closed roads from central Woking into the stunning countryside surroundings, providing beautiful scenery and a real breath of fresh air for runners. The energetic souls who are taking part can expect to receive a bespoke headwrap, free photos of their run to treasure forever, a huge medal (of course!) and accurately timed results so they can beat their record next year.
But the Surrey Half Marathon is more than just a race. The entire event includes live performances from local bands, aid stations and cheering spectators, all creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone who attends.
There’s also a chance for the kids to get involved! The Half Marathon hosts a wonderful Kids’ Run, giving the younger athletes an opportunity to support local causes, charities and of course… have fun! It’s a fantastic event that helps to showcase how exciting local community events can be, and that running is not a solitary sport – it creates friendships and memories for those who do it together. Just like the main event, the kid’s run also includes live bands along the route, cheering spectators and a fantastic medal for them to treasure.
Keep an eye out for the #WEAREWOKING team. We’ll be there on the day to support runners by offering an environmentally friendly surprise! Pop along to the #WEAREWOKING station to grab your own OOHO PODS! These are an edible and biodegradable alternative to plastic bottles, and the pods are perfect for on-the-go hydration.
See you there!
