Reigate Half Marathon

Event date: 15 September 2019    Event location: Reigate    Registration fee: £XX

This multi-award-winning half marathon offers fantastic scenery and an amazing atmosphere. With a fully closed route, the single-lap course takes in a combination of beautiful Surrey countryside and country lanes – a picturesque treat for runners made even better by the local supporters along the way. There’s something for every ability – you can choose to run 5K, 10K or even a half marathon.

By fundraising with us, you’ll be changing the lives of people living in desperate need – like Birungi, from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

After losing her parents, Birungi missed out on an education in order to look after her younger twin sisters, neither of whom could walk. With no means to provide for her family, Birungi received sewing skills training through a Tearfund partner and now runs her own sustainable business.

£360 could enable five people like Birungi to learn a new skill – restoring hope, dignity and the potential to earn an income.

What you’ll receive when you sign up

  • Fundraising pack and dedicated fundraising support
  • Tearfund T-shirt or running vest, plus iron-on letters to customise your kit
  • Tearfund water bottle
  • 10-week half marathon training and nutrition programme
  • Cheering materials for your friends and family including clapper sticks, a T-shirt and balloons
  • A warm Tearfund reception at the finish-line
