The Copthorne 200

THURSDAY 21st NOVEMBER 2024 @ 16:00

Modelled on the infamous Caesars Camp races, The Copthorne Races take place in Surrey, featuring a wide mix of terrain, woodland and contouring in and around the Box Hill, Mickleham and Headley areas. Indeed, the race name is a play on words as Headley was part of the Copthorne Hundred, an administrative division devised by the Saxons.

The 1st Annual Headtorchruns Marathon

SATURDAY 28th DECEMBER  2024 @19:30

Now in its eigth year, the 8th 1st Annual Headtorch Marathon takes place on the 28th December from Mickleham Village Hall.

A social Marathon with a difference. This guided event is the ideal way to have a worry free run over the hills chatting to your mates. It's also got the added bonus of working off some of those Christmas calories we all tend to pile on over the festive period.

The Winterfold 55 is a single loop course that takes in some of Surrey's most iconic trails including sections of the North Downs Way and the Greensands Way. The race starts from Mickelham Village Hall and takes in Reigate Hill before looping round and heading out towards Leith Hill and Winterfold Woods, then heading up to the North Downs Way and Box Hill to complete the loop. The route and elevation make this a tough event, but throw in the Winter weather and short daylight hours combine to make this a properly challenging race.

It's Party Time

To celebrate our fifth year of races and to make up for the party we couldn't have at the 5th 1st Annual Headtorchruns Marathon, we're having this party on the 29th June 2024, just after the Beer 21 race in the day.
