Route description
Route description

Runners will be treated to the Zig zag road free of traffic (a very rare occurrence). The course makes full use of the geography of Box Hill. There will be lightning fast downhill sections juxtaposed with steep uphill sections all of which will offer stunning views of the Surrey Hills AONB.

There will be plenty of marshals stationed along the course and well as hundreds of spectators to cheer you on.

The course is a 5km loop, so those 10k runners will have to complete it twice.

Logistics and schedule

The race will begin at 0930.

Please arrive at least 45 minutes before the start of the race in order to complete the registration process. More information about race day specifics will be sent out to those registered.


Spectators are encouraged to come along and lend their much needed support to runners. The best place to be is on the long uphill slope.

There will also be hot food and drinks available at the event village.


Volunteers are a key cog in making race events run smoothly. RunThrough have many roles for volunteers such as handing out medals, baggage drop, course marshalling, manning the water stations and plenty more. If you would like to find out more then follow the link here:
