COVID-19 INFORMATION

COVID-19 Mitigation

These measures, together with other Covid-related requirements at our events, may be subject to revision in response to any change in the current public health guidance issued by the government or regulatory bodies.

NHS Test and Trace will be in operation at our events. Participants will be required to complete a health declaration prior to arrival and to check-in where possible using the NHS COVID-19 app (available to download in advance for iOS or Android). Any information obtained will be held for 21 days after an event only and will not be used for any other purpose. Participants may not be permitted on site if they fail to follow this process, the full details of which will be communicated in the week leading up to an event.

One-way navigation and social distancing signage will be present on site to facilitate adherence to official guidance. Queue markers must be observed at all times and sanitisation stations used as frequently as necessary.

Unless there have been any changes following communication of the final pre-event information, there will be no event briefing on the day. Participants should read the communication thoroughly to familiarise themselves with the event details.

Participants will start individually at 10-15 second intervals to maintain social distancing, with a recommended 15-minute arrival window allocated and communicated prior to the event. Participants from the same household/bubble will be permitted to start together (if participating in the same distance/category) and should follow the relevant instructions to arrive and/or start at the later of any times communicated (if different). Whilst running, participants should only overtake when there is enough room (at least 1m) to do so.

Once finished, participants should continue moving and follow signage and marshal directions to keep the area clear for other finishers. Any post-event rewards (medal, water etc.) will be self-service (following hand-sanitisation) to ensure there is no contact amongst staff and participants.

Participants are asked to review the UKA Participant Code of Conduct prior to their arrival.

All of our events are organised following government and governing body COVID-19 guidance. We will continue to ensure that we deliver safe and enjoyable events.

Organiser's Description

This Half Marathon is one of Surrey's greatest annual events, attracting runners from all backgrounds and abilities. This scenic, single-lap event is set in the glorious countryside surrounding Woking and Guildford, and follows a fully closed route out from Woking town into the rural delights of nearby quaint villages. This picturesque race is made even more enjoyable by live music, and communities of local supporters.

A closed road 5k race is also available - fast and furious and boasting unparalleled PB potential. Runners will enjoy some of the best bits of the Half Marathon. And a kids' race, starting under the main half-marathon gantry, showcases running as a stand-alone sport in a fun and exciting environment

Course Details

The Routes are flat, on closed roads, and consist of an out-and-back via Westfield for the 5K, with an additional loop out past Jacob’s Well and Worplesdon for the Half Marathon.

The Half Marathon follows a professionally marked and measured single loop from central Woking into the surrounding countryside and the 5K features some of its best bits - including starting and finishing under the main event gantry.

This picturesque race is made even more popular by live performances from local bands, aid stations and communities of cheering spectators, and boasts one of the fastest half marathon finish times on record (62 minutes).

The Kids Run encourages children to experience the exciting atmosphere generated by mass-participation events which can inspire them to lead active and healthy lifestyles. With full road closures in place and dedicated team of volunteers, the safety of each child is paramount.

Course Map

Kids Race

Children must be aged 6 or over to participate in the Kids race but buggies (or similar) are permitted for children under 5. Children under 11 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Parents/Guardians should retain the tear-off tab from their child’s number to facilitate repatriation after the race. All children must be registered to run, but there is no requirement for chaperones to register themselves.

Race packs

Bib numbers are expected to be mailed to all participants who have registered with a valid UK address by midnight on the Sunday prior to the event.

Participants need not contact us with respect to non-receipt of their bib but should be prepared to show their booking confirmation on arrival if requested.

The road closure schedule will be posted approximately 6 weeks prior on the event website
