Run Reigate Half Marathon

The run started and finished in Priory Park, Reigate but came down as far as the Meath Green side of Horley. We stood at the end of our road (5 miles into the 13 mile course).

More than 3,500 runners completed the inaugural half marathon on Sunday including the odd fancy dress and a very young entrant:

 One  runner had his own very special admirer:

Andy Govus was first to the finish line in 1 hour 10 minutes, closely followed by the first woman to finish, Emily Gelder from Dulwich Runners AC, in 1 hour 26 minutes. Matthew finished in  2 hours 10 minutes.

Tragically, the excitement of the event was short-lived after a man, in his 20s and from Battersea,  was taken ill during the race  and later died in hospital.
