Inaugural Broadstairs Beach Fitness Run/Jog

29th June 2017

In support of Demelza Children’s Hospices, Kent
&
Variety Children’s Wheelchair Provision.

Most of us who enjoyed the great film, “Chariots of Fire” were unaware of the fact the venues used and the Carlton Hotel depicted were in Scotland, far from picturesque Dickensian Broadstairs in Kent, where the 1924 Olympians actually stayed and trained, prior to sailing from Dover en-route to the Paris Olympic Games.

The truth will be publicly revealed and celebrated on 29th June, with the formal unveiling of a plaque on the building, the former Carlton Hotel where the athletes stayed.

This will be followed by a commemorative re-enactment Walk/Jog/Run along the Broadstairs Viking Bay sands for members of the public, schools and other groups donating to the Charities, to take part.

The event will be filmed and videos will be available for purchase. There will be photo opportunities with star athletes and other VIPs and for selfies with  1948  and 2012 Olympic Torches.

This will be a good opportunity for schools to project their image with TV, radio and press in attendance.

The aim of the  event is to raise funds for charity, notably the Demelza Children’sHospices and the Variety Children’s Wheelchair Provision, and that more public interest will be generated by the participation of International athletes and hopefully some of the brilliant Film Stars who helped bring a wonderful story back to life.

Anyone in the above categories capable of action is invited to come along to register between 2.00pm and 2.45pm, while others who would like to take a nostalgic stroll in the footsteps of Olympians past are asked to declare their interest too.

We look forward to having a prestigious group to help Broadstairs celebrate possibly the greatest part of its sporting heritage, and expect to generate TV, radio and press interest.

Weald St. George’s 10k and Fun Run

The Weald St. George’s 10k and Fun Run are taking place again this year on Sunday 3rd September. The event continues to grow in popularity and last year we had a record number of runners enabling us to distribute £6,000 to local and national charities.

I am writing to you to ask if you would make the Weald St. George’s 10k part of Black Heath and Bromley Harriers AC calendar and/or 2017 Grand Prix schedule. The race, recently voted by Runners World readers as one of the most picturesque races in south east England. The event is very much a village affair with the church local businesses, the awarding winner CAMRA pub The Windmill and villagers all turning out to help make the event a success.

Last year Dame Kelly Holmes was again present to start the 10K race and fun run, hand out the finishers medals and prizes. We are hopeful that she can her fit this year’s event into her busy schedule.

We do hope you will consider adding the Weald St George’s10K to your calendar. If you have any question please contact me or the race director Ian Walker on the contact below or have a browse at our website Weald10K

Kind regards

Run Reigate 2017
Run Reigate’s award winning Intersport Half Marathon and 10K will be back on Sunday 17th September 2017 in Priory Park.

The Intersport Half Marathon and 10K are single-lap courses taking you out into the beautiful rural Surrey countryside on fully closed roads. This is a picturesque treat for runners, made even more enjoyable by the communities of local supporters along the route. In 2016 we improved the course by removing the cross-country section, so that it’s now all on road.

Run Reigate will once again provide a high quality runner experience with a huge Event Village consisting of a bag drop, warm-up, toilets, massage tent and live music area. The races will have staggered start times, chip timing, pacers, en-route toilets, energy gel and regular water stations. At the finish you’ll be rewarded with a collectable 2017 technical t-shirt, bespoke medal, water and banana. Post event you can enjoy our Food Village where you can refuel with a mouth watering selection of gourmet food stalls.

If you’re looking for fantastic scenery, an unbeatable atmosphere and a memorable experience, then come and join us! For more information, please visit our website www.runreigate.co.uk 

Half Marathon - £33 including booking fee

10K - £30 including booking fee
