Next Race: 16/06/2024
Horsell Common, Surrey
The race is organised completely by volunteers many who are local runners and all proceeds are distributed to local charities that are carefully selected by the Woking Lions. 2023 number surpassed previous years! £13,500 was raised and given to local charities from our last run. For 2024 we would like to surpass that.
The sandpits on Horsell Common are the site where the Martians first landed in H.G. Wells novel The War of the Worlds. Our race is in it’s sixth year and the route always goes through the historic sandpits.
Horsell Common is privately owned common land with public access. Almost half of the common is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). We are very privileged to be able to run on the common and take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. The routes are chosen to respect the flora and fauna that live there and we strive to minimise our impact. Our races are always litter free and this year we have pledged to be free of single-use plastics.
