Caterham Half-Marathon & 10K – 26th July

The Caterham Rotary Half Marathon and 10k will take place on Sunday July 26th 2015 and entries for the race are now available either by post or online.

Both races start and finish at Redhill Aerodrome. Although the race is not traffic free, it takes place on the quiet country lanes around the aerodrome. The course is undulating.

The race will be held under UK Athletics rule and carries a UK Athletics licence.

The event is suitable for both experienced runners and those new to running either half marathons or 10ks and, as well as attracting people from outside the town, it is hoped that the event will encourage many local people to put on their trainers and look to achieve their own personal milestones.
