Welcome to the Esher 10k and Fun Run 2019!
Monday 6 May 2019 will mark our 16th year of the Esher 10k and Fun Run. We have been overwhelmed by the support over the years to keep the Bank Holiday Monday tradition alive.
Last year we introduced a new chip timing system and we will be bringing you this again in 2019, so you’ll be able to check your race times shortly after you cross the finish line. This website was also new in 2018, providing all the event information at your fingertips. And don’t forget to keep in touch with our Facebook page ‘Esher runs’.
Keeping motivated through 12 months of the year is tough and we are delighted that so many of you use this event to keep a focus on your fitness and health during the winter and spring months.
One of the main attractions for this race is the beautiful scenery that you will pass whilst running the course. You will weave between Esher and Claygate taking in beautiful woodland trails, common and recreational grounds, footpaths and a few quiet roads all of which make up some of the best Surrey runs.
If this is your first event then you will be in good company. The courses welcomes all runners of all abilities so whether it is your first, hundredth or thousandth race, get registered, get involved and most importantly have fun whilst enjoying the surroundings.
A number of you may be running to raise money for a charity but if you haven’t got that far – it’s not too late! The charity that organises this amazing event is the Esher Church School Association (ECS PTA) and would welcome any donations from your fundraising efforts.
We have some huge thank yous to make – Thank you to Esher Church School for once again hosting the start of the races, to the local Esher and Claygate community who lend us their beautiful surroundings, to all our amazing volunteers. When you are running on the day, please take the time to consider that they have been awake well before you and will stay at the event until long after you have gone. They do it to help us put on this event for you. They do it because they love the feel good factor of seeing you cross the finish line. Please thank them if you get the chance.
Lastly thank you to all of you, the runners and your supporters, without you the day would not be as special as it is – the atmosphere, support and sportsmanship is world class and we would not have been able to achieve the success of the last 15 years without you.
Good luck and see you on the start line.
