Run Reigate 2016 – Well done everyone!
On Sunday morning, Reigate Priory Park was bustling with energy and excitement as runners prepared themselves for the third annual Run Reigate 10km and Half Marathon event. The combination of live music and a large supportive crowd created a wonderful atmosphere. Olympic Gold Medallist and iconic legend, Dame Kelly Holmes, was on the start line to give everyone encouragement.
This award-winning event is now firmly on the calendar and regarded as one of the best in the country with people of all shapes, sizes and ages running for their individual best and with many for their chosen charity.
An enormous “thank you” goes to all those individuals who ran for the RGS Foundation in their matching crisp white running vests in both the 10km or Half-Marathon events. All money raised will go directly to the Changing Lives social mobility campaign, providing bursarial support to gifted young children whose potential is far greater than their financial means.
Special mention goes to current RGS parent David Wigfield who has already raised over a phenomenal £700 – thank you David! Also Andrew Diggles (’02) who flew round the Half-Marathon course in just 1:38:36, an impressive time from the former RGS 1st XI cricket captain and parent Lindsay Middleton-Scarr who was not far behind with an equally superb time of 2:09:54
