The next Reigate Priory AC Couch to 5K programme is starting on Saturday 25th September

This 9 week course only costs £15 in total. If you know of anyone who might be interested, full details are here. Registration is now almost full!


Run Reigate 2021


I have done my best to identify everyone who took part in the Run Reigate Half Marathon, 10K and 5K races. It wasn't easy because of the different formats of club name used on the entries and because of the number of new members who presumably entered the race before they were club members, as well as a few long established club members who were presumably too shy to admit that they were members (you know who you are smile ).  So far I have identified 55 members who competed, please let me know if I have missed you. The results are in the senior results section

There were some stand out performances from both senior and junior RPAC athletes - special mention should be made of Neil Fenwick who finished 8th overall in the Half Marathon in a time of 01:22:13, of Max Smithson who finished 3rd overall in the 10K in a time of 35:09 and of Euan Willis who finished 3rd overall (and first in his age category) in the 5K in a time of 19:49. Euan ran in the U15 age category. There are some pictures of some of the senior runners in the senior section below.


Give us your results please

If you run in an event, do please let us know your results by emailing . If possible please can you submit them by Sunday evening at the latest as this allows us to meet the deadline for the Surrey Mirror sports pages.

MABAC League event at Lightwater Country Park

Because of the clash with Run Reigate we only managed to field a team of 6, but what a team! Despite the small number of entrants we still managed to score enough points that we only dropped one place to fourth in the league. Ben Stanton was our first finisher, coming in 5th place overall in 32:08 and Jamilla Ncayiyana was our first lady finisher, finishing in 23rd place overall in 37:10. Full results will be available soon. Well done to all of our intrepid band!
The next MABAC fixture is in Nonsuch Park on Sunday 24th October. Let's get a good string turnout.
