Join Team WSB for Surrey Half Marathon
As Woking gears up for the return of the Surrey Half Marathon taking place in March 2016, owner of the Cricketers Pub in Horsell, Clive Price will be running the marathon to raise money for our Hospices. Earlier in 2015 we were selected as the official local charity partner for the upcoming event and are looking to recruit more runners to take on this challenge as part of Team WSB.
Clive began supporting the Hospices when his company Barons Pubs took over the Cricketers in Horsell in 2006, helping to set up ‘Pedal 4 Charity’ in 2008 and holding various other events managing to raise more than £200,000 in the process.
“I started running about 4 years ago and progressed from doing around 4k or 5k to eventually training for some events which I took part in to raise money for the Hospices. Most recently I did the Surrey Half and London Marathon and found that the Surrey Half is a great training opportunity for challenges taking place later in the summer. It’s also an event with a fantastic atmosphere and lots of support from the crowds, for anyone thinking of signing up I’d really recommend it.”
He added “I’ve signed up to take part in both the Surrey Half and London Marathon again this year and will be raising as much as I can for the Hospices as they are a fantastic cause to support, the services they provide for local people are invaluable. I’ve noticed that anyone who has had an experience with the Hospices and the care that they give are really touched by their work. You never know when you or someone you know might need to use their services.”
The Surrey Half is the biggest half marathon in the county and the 13.1 mile route takes runners from Woking Leisure Centre out through beautiful country roads towards Guildford and back. Whether it’s for a new year’s resolution, you’re racing for a new personal best time, or looking to take on the distance for the first time you’ll receive great spectator support, pass four water stations on route and be encouraged on by the bands along the course. You’ll earn yourself a medal and memories of a fantastic achievement.
