New for 2020!

Committed to making continual improvements to this growing event, the organisers have designed a new, more-spacious event village in Woking Park which - along with a number of new Vegan and Vegetarian catering options - holds the environment at the very heart of the event (in line with their new Environmental Policy).

Hydration vests and reusable cups will be available to purchase from the Fitstuff stall which can be filled at water stations en-route and from large bowsers within the larger event village. This is part of a larger effort outlined by the new policy to reduce over 10,000 plastic bottles from this event within a single year.

Even with the expansion into Woking Park, runners will still be able to enjoy the indoor activities (such as yoga and massage) and facilities (including bag storage and changing rooms) available within Woking Leisure Centre.

The day commences in the leisure centre with optional guided meditation (support for nervous runners) and a mass warm-up with legendary PT 'Fit With Frank. The Mayor will then start the chip-timed 5K, Half Marathon and Kids Run from the new start/finish line in Woking Park along fully-closed roads.

All routes are lined with local bands, aid stations and communities of cheering spectators. Participants will receive a huge medal, bespoke headwrap and a number of finish line treats to celebrate their achievements.

To secure a place, entry is recommended before 31 Jan 2019. Thanks to Injury and Performance Partners Synergy Physiotherapy, you can download your choice of free training plan the moment you enter.
