The Run Reigate 2016, and Hull Marathon - all races now live in the Gallery

The start of the first race at Run Reigate - the 10k
The fabulous Run Reigate took place on Sunday with over 3800 runners taking part across three different race distances. The Junior races were a particular success - the culmination of 12 earlier one mile runs that the juniors had done meaning that this was the last mile of their Half Marathon experience - and over 1000 children took part in that alone - an excellent development initiative for running.

The Gallery for all the Reigate races is here:

We also had the wonderful and scenic Hull Marathon on Sunday - also in perfect conditions for distance running:
The Hull Marathon Gallery can be found here:

At Run Reigate we had Kelly Holmes in attendance helping with the warm-up, motivation and more selfies with people than you can imagine possible and a smile that went on forever.
