“It’s incredibly exciting that for the first time ever there is going to be a Surrey Half marathon taking place in March 2014 that will take in both Guildford and Woking. As a keen runner myself, and in my current role as the Director of Fundraising, it was hard not to commit to taking part, and putting my name down to run this event and raise funds for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.
The event team behind this half marathon, All About Triathlons led by Toby Jenkins, are excellent at staging running events of this nature, and I’m confident that this will be a fantastic day for runners of all abilities, and be great way of celebrating all local causes…
Surrey Half marathon taking place in March 2014 in both Guildford and Woking
I am pleased to say my training has started, and I’ve started to hit the streets of West End where I live, negotiating some new routes out on the country lanes to Windlesham to ensure I get some hill work in. Toby has promised me the half marathon will be a slightly undulating course… Meaning he’s going to make sure there are some hills for us to make our way up!
Unfortunately the light nights are fading as we head in to the autumn, so some early morning runs pre-work might become more common place for me over the months ahead. What’s great about running is being out in the open, and around Woking we’re blessed with some great countryside and routes to train on, whether it’s along the Basingstoke canal or through Surrey Heath or Chobham common.
The 13.1 mile route will be a great challenge and a fantastic way for many people to get out in their running shoes and show their support for our Hospices. As a charity we have 100 places in the run to offer to our supporters, who are able to commit to a minimum sponsorship income of £400. In return we’ll provide our Hospice100 runners with a range of benefits which you can learn more about on our website.”
