Surrey Half Marathon

Woking, Surrey

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

The Mercer Surrey Half Marathon Kids' Run, sponsored by Greenfield School, is one of the UK’s largest kids’ running races for those aged 6 – 16. Starting under the main half-marathon gantry, the Kids Run showcases running as a stand-alone sport in a fun and exciting environment.

If you want to inspire your children to want and lead an active lifestyle, the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon Kids Run is a great way to do just that. With hundreds of other children from local schools and clubs taking part, the race serves as a great way to get kids involved in the community whilst having fun with their friends and family. They have the opportunity to make new friends during their warm up.

Every child is clapped and cheered across the main finish line by our thousands of spectators, and will receive a large finisher’s medal which they will treasure for years!

With full road closures in place and a dedicated team of volunteers, the safety of every child is fully addressed and catered for. If your child would prefer to run with youthat’s no problem. They can start at the back of the pack with you / their chosen family member. Your child must be registered to race, but there is no need to register their chaperone.

Parents or guardians must remove the “Child Collection Tag” from their child’s race bib. At the end of the run, marshals will compare children’s race bib numbers with the collection tag numbers to ensure each child departs with the correct adult.

A Pace Pocket is a fabric wristband with a storage pocket for keys/cards/cash etc, and printed pace times for your half marathon.

You can purchase a Pace Pocket during registration. Your Pace Pocket will be sent directly to you 10-12 days before the race. Should you change your target time between now and the race, and would like to swap for a different time, please email at least two weeks before race day to advise on your new target time.

Very well organised event.

Very good organisation and lovely countryside route. Good food choices in the village, and easy bag storage. All in all I'm very impressed and will run this again.
