Race Listing


It may still be November but the first Christmas-themed race of the year is nearly upon us. The Croxley Green Christmas Cracker on Saturday will see participants dressing up as their favourite festive character as they take on the 10k. If you’re more of a Scrooge character, the Phoenix Riverside Winter Marathon and Half Marathon returns to Surrey with not a Christmas costume in sight. Also in Surrey, run-forest-run features some forest frolics (i.e. jumping around trees). No word yet on whether they're Christmas trees.
Check out race results and upcoming events on our race listing page.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up as a race organiser.

Good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
