The award-winning Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon and 10K has launched The 2017 Emergency Services Challenge: Police vs Fire vs Ambulance, to take place at the event on Sunday 17th September 2017.

The challenge is open to all emergency services personnel wishing to take part in the Half Marathon or the 10K event, and the race is on to see which team is the fastest of them all. A trophy will be presented by Dame Kelly Holmes to the fastest Emergency Services team (average of 5 fastest runners) across each distance, and support for the teams is guaranteed to be huge.

The Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon and 10K is now entering its fourth year and has found a winning formula with its beautiful route through rural Surrey, fantastic community support, a highly popular Canon Kids Race and a first-class race village. The Half Marathon was voted the UK’s Best Half Marathon (≤ 5,000 participants) at The Running Awards 2017 and is a firm fixture in the autumn race calendar for runners from near and far.

The event is the perfect platform for the emergency services to show their support to the local community and to also see the love that the community holds for its local heroes.

Many emergency services personnel and other runners will be running to raise money for the event’s Star Charity Partner, The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in partnership with George and the Giant Pledge, and the seven local charity partners which include Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.

Race Director Dave Kelly commented, “We are thrilled to launch The 2017 Emergency Services Challenge for the police, fire and ambulance services. It is our way of recognising the incredible work the emergency services carry out in the community and their participation is guaranteed to be an immensely popular feature of race day, for spectators young and old! There will be plenty of cheering for the emergency services teams in both the half marathon and the 10K, and the challenge will be a fantastic opportunity for team building.

“With less than two months until race day, excitement is brewing and we are on track to deliver our biggest and best event yet. We are offering reduced entry fees for all Emergency Services runners. Public entries are also open and anyone wishing to run should sign up now.”

The event is offering discounted rates for all Emergency Services runners, who should select their preferred distance and join their team online at https://www.resultsbase.net/event/3724.

The 2017 Intersport Run Reigate Half Marathon and 10K takes place on Sunday 17th September. Entries are open, with individual entry £33 / £35 for the Half Marathon and £30 / £32 for the 10K. The Canon Kids Race is open to young runners aged 4-15 years and costs £12.

Latest Event Update

It is with a heavy heart that due to the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic we are announcing that it will not be possible for Run Series to deliver any of our physical events this year – this includes Run Gatwick, Run Reigate and Ride Reigate.

Although not altogether unexpected, this is disappointing for everyone involved. However, our priority, regardless of this pandemic, has always always been for the safety and wellbeing of you the runners as well as our volunteers, partners, charities, staff, supporters and the wider community without any of whom our events would just not be possible. Given that there remains vast uncertainty on how to best safely move forwards we do not feel it would be practically possible, or socially responsible, for us to stage these events this year and deliver a safe, fun and enjoyable experience for all.

This decision has been made in consultation with all local authorities who right now are also unable to guarantee availability of event venues. So what happens now? ​All runners and riders currently registered for our 2020 events will be​ automatically transferred to our 2021 events​ and so there is no action for you to take at this stage. We are working with the local authorities and event venues to finalise the 2021 dates and we will announce these very soon. For further details on transfers and deferrals etc, please take a look at our Q&As. We value your opinion.​ We have been thinking about some exciting things we could potentially do for our runners and cyclists in the coming months until we can once again safely host our large scale events. We’d love your input to make sure we’re on the right track so please complete our short survey below. To say thank you for taking part, you’ll be in with a chance to win one of 3 fantastic top-to-toe On Running kits worth over approx. £300​! We very much look forward to when we can all race again and come together with confidence and lighter hearts doing what we do best – Running as One. Until then we would like to say a very heartfelt thank you for your continued support throughout this time, your ongoing understanding is greatly appreciated.

David Kelly, Race Director on behalf of the whole Run Series Team.

POSTPONEMENT Q&A's

We appreciate there will be lots of questions and we have tried to pre-empt those with a detailed Q&A’s which you can find here

In the unlikely situation that you cannot find the answer to your query, please email us at info@runseries.co.uk​. Due to a reduced working team we will do our very best to respond to your query within 5 working days.

Why did you decide to postpone the 2020 races to 2021?

We considered many alternative approaches to try and safely deliver Run Gatwick, Run Reigate and Ride Reigate with appropriate social distancing measures. However, after careful consideration, we made the difficult decision to postpone all mass participation events to 2021. Our decision was rooted in the best interests for the health and wellbeing of runners, supporters, volunteers, sponsors, suppliers and all those involved in making the running of these events possible. In addition the continued uncertainty over government guidelines for events significantly reduces the window of time needed to plan and deliver safely our full event experience.

Will my registered place for my event still hold for 2021?

Yes, your entry for your 2020 event will be valid for the 2021 race and will be automatically transferred over to the new date (date still TBC), you do not need to do anything else, we will contact you nearer to the event with all the usual information.

Is there a refund option available for these events?

Organising our event requires a considerable amount of forward planning and expense – and entry fees are used to support these costs, many of which are incurred long before event day. Your entry fees doesn’t only cover on the day costs like road closures, barriers, medals, t-shirts, Policing, medical provision, etc – they also help to cover the up front planning costs which include staff wages, risk assessments, safety measures, consultation with local businesses, supplier fees and licences – to name but a few. For these reasons the Run Series refund policy for all of our events has always been the same, we do not and cannot offer refunds. This is made clear in our ​terms and conditions​ ​– which all runners agree to upon registration.

What if I can’t make the new event date?

As soon as we are able to, we will announce our 2021 dates. If you are unable to make the new date, you will be able to defer your place to the following year, transfer to another of our events or transfer your place to another participant. All of these options will be free of charge.

What happens if my place was allocated by a charity partner?

As your charity place belongs to your charity, any decision about your place must be made by them. Details regarding the potential reallocation of charity places should be discussed with the relevant charity partner directly.

What will happen to the Run Gatwick England Athletics National Championships and Sussex Athletics Championships?

The 2021 Run Gatwick event will retain Championship status for both Sussex Athletics and England Athletics and all elite places will automatically have their entry deferred to the new 2021 event as detailed by Run Series in the coming weeks.

Will there be a virtual event instead?

We are currently exploring options and invite you to complete our survey and have your say. We will take on board your comments and make an announcement regarding this as soon as possible.

When announced, are the 2021 event dates guaranteed?

As much as we would like to, we cannot offer you certainty around rescheduled event dates as there are just too many factors out of our control. In a world that is changing so rapidly on a daily basis, the future is far from certain but we will do our best to honour our commitment to you and deliver a fantastic event experience in line with the government regulations in place at the time.

What happens with my iTAB/PacePocket order?

Your iTab/Pace Pocket order will be carried over to your 2021 event entry.
