To assist drivers we have secured just over 1,800 parking spaces with local Reigate businesses, all are within a 5-10 minute walk from Priory Park and the Start Line. The cost to park is £3.00 for the full day, which includes a printed event guide – all proceeds from the car parks will go directly to our charity partners who will be collecting at the gates.

Reigate is served by Reigate Station, with direct trains to London Victoria and London Bridge at peak times, and to Gatwick Airport, Reading and Redhill at off-peak times. Redhill Station is a major interchange station with frequent trains serving London, Brighton and other routes. Up-to-date timetables can be found on the National Rail website.
*29/8 – Due to rail engineering works, there will be an impact on normal services with no trains stopping at Redhill. There will instead be a bus replacement service from either Gatwick or Purley depending on your direction of travel.

Access and parking
Whilst the public car park at Priory Park will be closed to the general public, there will be limited parking available for Blue Badge holders as this is located very close to the start and finish area, availability will be on a first-come first-served basis. There will be no charge for parking for Blue Badge holders and you do not need to book in advance – just show the car park marshals your Blue Badge when you arrive. There are various other car parks located around Reigate with disabled bays.
Priory Park will have adequate disabled toilet facilities.
Toilets & changing facilities
There will be toilet facilities at various locations in Priory Park, including the event village, adjacent to the Fitness & Food Festival, within the Pavilion Café and along both routes. There will be no changing facilities so please arrive ready to run.
The Spire bag drop will be open from 7:30am until 2:00pm in the event village. All runners can deposit one bag on the day free of charge, and bags can be collected after the race upon presentation of your race number.
Pre-event warm up
There will be a warm-up for all runners led by British Military Fitness. Runners will be encouraged to group on the grass area in front of the start to take part. The start funnel is accessible from this area.
half marathon and 10k first aid / medical provision
There will be a strong presence from our medical providers and from the British Red Cross at various points along both route and in Priory Park near the start/finish. If at any time during the race you feel unable to continue, please stop, rest and locate the nearest marshal.
Medical teams will be on hand around the course as well as at the start and finish areas. The medical tent will be situated near the finish line and run-off area.
It is vital that you ensure the medical information on the back of your runner number has been completed. It is your responsibility to inform the organisers if you have any special medical conditions.
[fuIt is our intention wherever possible to keep the roads open to minimise inconvenience and disruption for local residents and businesses. A number of small part-road and junction closures will apply for short periods on a rolling basis. This means that the section of road or junction will be re-opened immediately after the last runner passes through to allow free flow of traffic.
Race time limit
Our marshals will be stood down from midday, however all runners are encouraged to continue running, every finisher will be chip timed. Any runner still on route after midday will be given the option of a lift to the finish line if they’re struggling to complete the distance.
