Organising our Run Reigate event incurs many costs, many long before event day. Entry fees don’t only cover on the day costs like road closures, barriers, medals, policing, marshals, medical and many more, they help with the up front planning costs which include but are not restricted to: staff, risk assessments, safety measures, consultation with local business, road closure fees, medical cover, police assistance, supplier fees, licences – to name but a few. Organising any event requires a considerable amount of forward planning, risk and expense – and entry fees are used to support these efforts in order to put on the event.

If you’re not running it’s a great way to get involved. Please take a look at our volunteers page to find out how you can get involved.

6th year and I’ll be back for number 7! Great race and well organised from start to finish. Better set up than a lot of Marathons! Definitely worth doing
My first time running this course and, as a novice runner, I cannot fault anything about it. The organisation on the day was superb, the people were friendly and welcoming. A magical day for me.
Run Reigate is my favourite running event of the year with 2019 marking my third time running this half marathon. The festival-feel is great and the organisation is much better, and human, than you'll find at many other larger events
This is a great race. The distance is perfect for younger kids. It is a great experience with all crowds and medals! Would definitely recommend.
It was an amazing race - really well organised and supported! Loved every second!

Coronavirus Update

We are sure you are all wondering if British Airways Run Gatwick scheduled to take place in just 8 weeks time is still going ahead. In light of the fast moving developments around COVID-19, regretfully we have taken the decision this weekend to postpone the event. Whilst we are extremely disappointed for us and all of you who have been training, our first priority is always to protect the health and well-being of our runners, volunteers, partners and the wider community and this is coupled with the need to not put additional pressure on our local and emergency services.

Our new date for the event will be Sunday 18th October and we absolutely intend to deliver the full British Airways Run Gatwick experience for everyone but as you can appreciate, the next few months are uncertain and therefore we will keep you updated regularly.

We are also aware that many other running events are also postponing to the Autumn period and British Airways Run Gatwick may clash with them and we know that many of you will have to choose between us and other great events. There’s nothing we can say other than we really hope you will still join us. Your entry will automatically be carried over to the new date so there is no action for you to take.

We know you may have some questions particularly around deferrals and transfers, so please bear with us over the coming days as we want to ensure a streamlined and consistent response to you all. Updates will be emailed directly and posted on the Run Gatwick website and our social media channels. Please could we ask you to wait for those updates rather than emailing or asking for updates via social media, this will really help our small team in these difficult circumstances.

Our running and local community are incredibly supportive and we’d like to thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and continued support whilst we work on new plans to deliver a fantastic event experience for everyone in October.
