Half Marathon Challenge To Surrey parkrunners

runners at Surrey Half

Organisers of the 2XU Surrey Half Marathon are encouraging local parkrun participants to take on the challenge of the 13.1 mile distance. They are giving runners whom have taken part at either Guildford or Woking parkrun the chance to win one of five free places to their big event on Sunday 13 March.

As well as having taken part at Guildford or Woking, parkrunners should not have participated in an organised half marathon event. To enter, parkrunners should 'Like' the Surrey Half on Facebook, and then comment on the competition announcement post. The competition launched on 18 January, and closes 25 January at 12 noon.

The Surrey Half is the county's largest closed-road half marathon and boasts a flat, scenic route with four water stations, local bands, run pacers, and great spectator support. You’ll enjoy a fantastic atmosphere running alongside other like-minded people, and can choose to support your choice of charity at the same time!

Hundreds of people will be looking to complete their first half marathon on race day, and so all 'newbies' will be in good company.

Race director Toby Jenkins said: “The Surrey Half Marathon 2016 will be a great event for runners, spectators, volunteers, local businesses and spectators alike. Do join us.”
