Former World record holder to launch Reigate Run

Sporting hero launches Intesport Run Reigate Half Marathon and 10k

A former commonwealth gold medallist is set to launch two road races in Reigate.

Dave Moorcroft, the former 5,000m world record holder, will be on hand to offer advice for those competing in the Intersport Run Reigate half marathon and 10K run later this year.

Moorcroft will be at Simply Sports Store in Reigate town centre on Saturday (May 16) from 10am until noon.

People who attend the event will be able to receive expert advice on training from the former gold medallist as well as running tips and analysis prior to the upcoming events.

The former champion will encourage visitors to the store to sign up to run either distance, at the main event on September 20 .

Anyone who visits the store and signs up for the race on the day, will be in with a chance of winning some new sports kit courtesy of Simply Sports.

Even if you are not a runner but would like to be involved there are prizes available for people who sign up to volunteer, so family and supporters are also welcome to come along and meet a sporting hero.
