Surrey Half Returns to Woking in 2015
9 October 2014
Woking Leisure Centre will act as the event hub at the centre of all the days’ activities. The closed-road running event is the biggest in the county, and will take 6,500 runners through the country lanes to the South West of Woking before returning to the town for their big finish! The scenic course is flat and fast, so it’s a great place to secure your best 13.1 mile finish time!
A Kids race will take in a 2km closed road circuit in Woking hopefully inspiring the half marathon runners of the future.
The people of Woking have been asked to give professional and charity runners a special welcome.The Surrey Half Marathon will be working closely with local charities. Official Charity Partners for 2015 are Shooting Star CHASE, WWF, Woking and Sam Beare Hospices and Harrison’s Fund. Organisers hope that runners will use the Surrey Half as an opportunity to fundraise for charity. The 2014 event raised more than £100,000 for charity, and everyone hopes to top that figure in 2015.
The running route will be lined with local live bands and spectators, and local club cyclists will lead the runners out onto the course.
Race Director Toby Jenkins, who lives locally, said: “We are very proud to be doing this is Woking. It’s all about showcasing Woking and involving residents as runners, spectators and volunteers.”
