Race Info - Run Surrey Run 2023
IN PERSON ROAD RACE WILL BE HELD SEPTEMBER 10, 2023
Running and walking are among the most popular activities in the world today. Consumer research reveals that improving fitness, losing weight and staying in shape are the most common reasons for engagement followed by relieving stress and having fun. Like all physical activity, regular walks and runs can improve cardiovascular function and reduce body fat, as well as improving the mental health of adherents to these exercise regimes.
As a 5K/10K Walk/Run our event is destined to become an annual celebratory occasion for residents of Surrey -although the global pandemic has played havoc with the scheduling and resulted in the postponement of the inaugural race. In 2021 the event was held as a virtual one as per the outline covered in Race Etiquette. 2023 will see an in-person Road race starting at Holland Park on September 10, 2023 at 9:00 AM.
Our currently road race places more emphasis on fun and exercise than it does on competition. It is open to novice and experienced walkers and runners and all levels of endurance in between as well as participants of all ages and athletic ability. It will be a clean and green event and our mandate is to consider how we can promote the event for the greater good of the people of Surrey and the many endeavours of its broad charitable community.
