Surrey Half Marathon routes
This scenic, single-lap half marathon is set in the glorious countryside surrounding Woking and Guildford, and follows a fully-closed and professionally marked and measured route out from Woking town into the rural delights of the nearby quaint villages. This picturesque race is made even more enjoyable by live music and communities of local supporters. The course is flat and fast, and boasts an impressive course record of 1:02hrs.
As one of the only closed-road 5K races available in the country, this UKA-affiliated race is fast and furious – and boasts unparalleled PB potential .If you want the “half marathon experience” with less running – this is the race for you .
Set early in spring, our 5K is the perfect “first race” for the new year – and a great start to the day at the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon! Setting off first from the main gantry, runners will enjoy some of the best bits of the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon, including: a lead car, professional route marking, a water station, and a fantastic mix of urban and rural scenery.
Taking new runners an average of 30 minutes to complete, the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon 5K is a very achievable race. If you are not ready to train for and complete a half marathon, but want to enjoy the mass-participation racing experience – the 5K is the race for you. Everyone aged 11+ is welcomed to get involved and give this race a go.
The Mercer Surrey Half Marathon Kids Run, sponsored by Halstead School, is one of the UK’s largest kids’ running races for those aged 6-16. Starting under the main half-marathon gantry, the Kids Run showcases running as a stand-alone sport in a fun and exciting environment.
Xempo Race Pacing provide a number of “Pacers” to help half marathon runners gauge their progress throughout the race and achieve their desired finish time. Pacers run at a steady pace, with large coloured flags which indicate their finish time. There will be pacers for 1.30, 1.45, 1.50, 2.00, 2.10, 2.20. Give yourself a few minutes before the start to find the pacer who you want to run with, or judge the pace for yourself.
