Surrey Half Now With Extra Bounce

Girl runner gives thumbs up at Surrey Half

Race organisers at Surrey Half Marathon are finalising plans for their big early spring event (Sunday 8 March 2015).  6,000 participants of all abilities will enjoy the closed-road race on scenic roads around Woking.  Event features include 12 bands and four water stations along the route - which will keep runners motivated and hydrated - plus chip-timing, free mobile phone app, post-race nutrition and great community support along the way.

Kids can participate in a 2k closed-road run starting and finishing under the main race gantry at the half marathon's permanent new home at Woking Leisure Centre.  All finishers will receive a medal.

Places are still available for both the half marathon and the fun run and race director Toby Jenkins told SOUTHERN RUNNING GUIDE:  "With six weeks to go we're confident that 2015 is going to be a classic  We recently added an extra dimension when we signed a deal with Guildford-based company Bounce to provide nutrition balls for all Surrey Half Marathon finishers. We have a limited number of places available so sign-up today to avoid disappointment."

If you have already registered to take part why not make your run extra special by supporting one of Surrey Halfs' charity partners - Woking Sam Beare, WWF, Harrison’s Fund and Shooting Star CHASE. These good causes offer runners great support during training and on race day.

Road closure details are available on the Surrey Half website, so if you live in the local area take a look to see if the event might affect your travel on Sunday 8 March.
