Join us for a unique opportunity to run down…then up the famous Box Hill over the 5k or 10k on Sunday 30th September 2018.

Zig zag road will be closed for only the 3rd ever time for a sporting event (Ride London and The 2012 London Olympics) for you to be able to run it. Box Hill lies within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Box Hill featured prominently on the route of the 2012 Summer Olympics cycling road race events.

We will have 3 timing points within this race. A downhill 1 mile, sure to be the fastest mile you will ever run, followed by an uphill mile which may just be your slowest mile and then your overall 5k finish time. The 10k runners will be tackling this twice. You’ll want to see your splits after this race!

Each KM will be accurately marked out and we have plenty of helpers to encourage you on your way up to the finish. Included in your entry fee is a themed medal, event t-shirt, water and post race goodies.

9.30am – 5k & 10k Start

11.30am – Free Kids Fun Run

Unique themed medal!

The FIRST EVER running event to run up a closed Zig Zag road. Only two events have done it before, both cycling events and one of them was the 2012 London Olympics!

Can you Beat Box Hill in 2018? You’ll be able to grab your Beat Box Hill finishers t-shirt and medal once you finish the race!
