Information from Nicola Curran, British Airways Run Gatwick
04th March 2018
You may already know about our brand new community running event for the South East – the British Airways Run Gatwick International Half Marathon, 5K/Corporate 5K and Family Run taking place on Sunday 13th May 2018, starting and finishing in Crawley’s Southgate Park.
Runners will complete either a 13.1 mile or 5km route through stunning local scenery and youngsters and their families will be encouraged to participate and enjoy a 1 mile run in and around the centre of Crawley.
We are working closely with Crawley Borough Council and British Airways on delivering this new mass participation event for the area. For the last four years we have organised a very similar event in Reigate called Run Reigate which has been extremely successful and has raised so far over £700,000 for charities in Surrey and Sussex.
This year we are launching our Run Gatwick event in Crawley and it’s designed to get people active, boost local tourism and support many local charities.
For this event to work, we recruit around 300 volunteers (marshals/racemakers) and this is my reason for contacting you as we would the community to be involved .. We have quite a few roles to fill, ranging from marshals for the routes, team leaders, water, medal, and banana distributers and running the Information Tent.
All volunteers (aged 18 + will receive a free breakfast, a quality racemaker t-shirt and entry to 2019 Run Gatwick event)
