Our Next Races

Here is a list of all our upcoming events for the year:

Vanguard Marathon

Date:
Sunday 6th August 2017

Description:
The Vanguard Way Marathon is now a well established annual August trail marathon that offers glorious runs from South Croydon out towards Limpsfield past the M25 and back. Runners will actually follow the VGW national trail as it winds through various idyllic woods and small villages up onto the spectacular North Downs Way – actually crossing the Meridian Line twice en route.
In 2017 we will also incorporate a VGW half marathon where runners can complete an out and back 13.1mile route that showcases the beautiful Surrey countryside and villages outside of Croydon.
Annually we ask for the Mayor of Croydon to attend our marathon to help present the prizes and finishers medals which adds to the whole enjoyment of the day itself – feedback has been wonderful over the past 6 years

Woldingham Marathon

Date:
Sunday 27th August 2017

Description:
The Woldingham Half and Full Marathon held its first event in August 2016 and was hailed a great success for all the runners who completed the course – we had over 100 runners completing the event – which included our first ever dog winner Ruby! A trail running delight the course departs from the spectacular settings of Woldingham School from their main grounds and out along the private road surrounding by glorious rolling hills up onto the North Downs Way where we follow the ridge round until we drop down to Oxted Downs – where there are terrific views as the runners climb and fall following a section of the VGW trail route for a couple of miles. The route resumes back along the NDW and follows the steep path up along Titsey plantation and woodlands arriving at the high point of the course near Botley Hill Farm. The route follows the main road back towards Woldingham on a safe cycle path and then crosses to follow Slines Oak Road and the Golf Club deep into the valley – look out for both Horses and Llamas on the way down in the fields.
Eventually the runners make the private school road that takes them to the finish of the 13.1 mile lap route again with wonderful views of the surrounding valleys – this race is highly recommended if you love the outdoors and scenic trail routes
