BEAT BOX HILL 5K 10K SEPTEMBER 2019
*This event has been rearranged to June 2020!
Join us for a unique opportunity to run down…then up the famous Box Hill over the 5k or 10k on Sunday 29th September 2019.
Take the opportunity to run the famous Zig zag road which will be fully CLOSED just for you to be able to run it. Box Hill lies within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Box Hill featured prominently on the route of the 2012 Summer Olympics cycling road race events.
We will have 3 timing points within this race. A downhill 1 mile, sure to be the fastest mile you will ever run, followed by an uphill mile which may just be your slowest mile and then your overall 5k finish time. The 10k runners will be tackling this twice. You’ll want to see your splits after this race!
Each KM will be accurately marked out and we have plenty of helpers to encourage you on your way up to the finish. Included in your entry fee is a themed medal, event t-shirt, water and post race goodies.
