We provide runners with the ability to run marathons in beautiful and safe surroundings supported by enthusiastic volunteers who ensure all runners receive much needed encouragement as they navigate the ups and downs of the various courses. We welcome runners of all abilities.

We are extremely excited with our NEW half marathon in Richmond Park, which will appeal to all runners who are either training for London Marathon, or just simply want to take part in a well-organised event.

From East Croydon Station, 20 minutes by train from central London, you soon reach parkland, woodland and open country, passing several historic houses at Coombe, through Selsdon Wood Nature Reserve and past the very olde but pretty little church of St. Mary the Virgin at Farleigh. Some quite strenuous running/walking is needed to reach the highest part of the route, in the North Downs, at 260 metres (853 feet) above sea level. On the way you pass the mysterious Nore Hill Chalk Pinnacle a feature that has been kept as a reminder of the geological structure of this area.

A steep descent from the Downs leads on to the North Downs Way National Trail and the Pilgrims Way, crossing the Greenwich Meridian, where the Vanguards have provided a commemorative plaque. Nearby is Titsey Place, an 18th century manor house that can be visited at certain times. Quickly crossing the M25 on a footbridge, a further ascent leads into the wooded slopes of the Greensand Ridge. Once on the edge of Limpsfield, we turn around to admire the view from the other way its truly breathtaking scenery.
