A big welcome to Reigate’s first ever Half Marathon! We are all very excited about it, the route has been carefully planned around Reigate, and it’s going to be an amazing atmosphere. Friends and family can cheer you on and of course we start and finish in lovely Priory Park.
Whether you are a seasoned runner, a fun runner or someone who has just thought about running, please set yourself a goal and enter this historic event, especially if you live locally! Running is so good for you, physically and mentally – it burns calories faster than many other activities, it boosts your cardiovascular health and your body’s immunity to illness. Running improves your blood cholesterol level, fights diabetes, arthritis and osteoporosis. Best of all, it improves your confidence by helping lose weight, releasing endorphins and keeping you fit and motivated. What is there to lose!?
If you can, please run for one of our charities and help raise vital funds. There is plenty of time to train for this great event and reap the benefits of a healthier, fitter you.
I hope to see you there on the day.
