Travel & Parking
We recommend cycling, running or walking to the event if you live locally.
Reigate is just a few minutes from junction 8 of the M25 motorway, and is served by the A25 from Dorking, and the A217 from Gatwick. If you are planning to drive we ask that you car share where possible.
We have secured just over 1,800 parking spaces with local Reigate businesses, all are within a 5-10 minute walk from Priory Park and the Start Line. The cost to park is £4.00 for the full day – all proceeds from the car parks will go directly to our charity partners who will be collecting at the gates on the day of the event. Click here for car park locations.
Reigate Station is within a 10 minute walk of Priory Park and Redhill Station a 10 minute drive away. Latest timetables can be found on the National Rail website.
Pre Event Warm Up
On the day there will be a lively and energetic warm up for all runners before they head out onto the course.
Toilets & Changing Facilities
Toilet facilities will be available in the Event Village near to the start line. There will be no changing facilities so please arrive ready to run.
Toilets will also be available at all water stations on the Half Marathon and 10k routes.
To ensure a COVID safe event for 2021 unfortunately we will NOT be offering our usual baggage drop facility. Governmental advice is to limit contact/touch points wherever possible.
Therefore please limit what you bring to the event and come ready to run. Any bags should be left with family / friends or in your vehicles which can be parked within a few minutes walk to the park.
Half Marathon Pacers
Xempo will be providing pacers for the half marathon this year.
This event takes place on fully closed roads. Closure times and maps can be found below. If you plan to drive, please check road closure locations and times before you travel.
There will be water stations along the Half Marathon and 10k route. Additional water will be available to every runner at the finish line, including the 5k runners.
For 2021 we are aiming for a more sustainable solution. Through our partnership with SES Water we will be using paper cups and eliminating 24,000 plastic water bottles. And all water will come exactly as it does at home, from a tap!
If you prefer to drink from a bottle please bring one along as bottled water will not be available.
Event Village & Spectators
We love our spectators and we know our runners do too, the noisier the better. Please encourage friends and family. to come along and support you and all our runners on the day. Look out for our DJ at the Beehive Pub (who are also offering a great brunch!), our energetic drummers just before that killer hill and a Samba band on the final stretch into the park.
Once you have crossed the finish line you will be able to relax in our Event Village, whilst it may be a little smaller this year we know you will all bring the same fabulous energy and atmosphere as in previous years.

However, if you change your mind on the day and want to see if there is a spare medal for your collection then head over to the Info tent after 12.00 and if we have any spare you can pick one up then.

There’s still time to join our happy esure RaceCrew….behind the scenes we’re busy putting together a huge 300+ volunteer team to look after runners and spectators in Priory Park and along the routes; volunteering is an extremely rewarding experience and we’d love you to get involved.
Our thank you will be a memorable experience, breakfast on the day and a free race place for our 2022 Run Reigate event!
