As part of our ongoing COVID response, to ensure the opportunities for social distancing are maximised, Spectators will be permitted in the event village throughout the event but we highly recommend social distancing where possible. There are also opportunities to spectate on the route and around the start/finish area, spectators are reminded that they should adhere to the appropriate social distancing recommendations at all times.

If restrictions are changed both legally and by the regulatory bodies (in this case Run Britain), we may have to change our spectator procedures accordingly which could be at short notice..   

You could also consider volunteering. Mercer Surrey Half Marathon Volunteers are rewarded with a free race place for themselves or a friend in the following year, and best of all there is no selection process – simply sign up and turn up! We recruit over 250 local volunteers to hand out medals, cheer runners across the line, assist with bag storage, and more. With a variety of other roles available, it’s a truly memorable day for all involved. Head to our volunteering page for more information.
