On Friday 24th April 2014 we had the pleasure of attending the 2015 Running Awards, a national awards scheme that recognises the best in the British running industry, from kit and technology to events and nutrition.
We were more than delighted to be shortlisted in the ‘UK’s best half marathon’ category after our first half marathon; a huge achievement, which is testament only to the tireless energy of the Run Reigate team.
It was a night filled with anticipation, made slightly worse by the fact our category was second to last, but finally after a delicious meal and the Runner’s World PB awards it was time….
Following a nail-biting introduction the results were announced…we scooped Silver place!! Recognised for our great organisation, super friendly atmosphere and stunning scenic route.
We beat the Great North Run, The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon and a list of equally stand-out events, we couldn’t have been more proud!
What a result for our first year! Suffice to say we’re now even more excited about our second year and we’re working even harder to make this year bigger, better and more memorable for runners and spectators alike.
