This is an annual event and is a circular route starting and finishing from Shalford Park. 

The course is planned by the Rotary club and members of the public walk the route for their chosen charity.

R.E.D January and 5K Garden Runs

January or anytime

R.E.D January is a movement aimed at supporting your mental wellbeing through daily exercise. Matthew Bennett who suffered a brain injury himself over 50 years ago ran every day in January 2020 and covered nearly 200 miles.

He enjoyed running so much he has taken to running regular 5Ks in his very own garden. His aim was to run between 75 and 100 but has already exceeded 125 and has a new target of 150!

Matthew in his 60s, is an inspiration to us all and we are thankful he has chosen Headway Surrey as his preferred charity. These events are not impacted by COVID-19 and we welcome new fundraisers all the time...

Skydiving

All Year

In association with Skyline Skydiving you get to parachute for free if you raising money for charity to a minimum of £395. You did need to be 16 and over and a weight limit applies.

The jump is in tandem with a fully qualified instructor leaving you free to simply enjoy the experience. After exiting the plane at 10,000ft you will freefall for 40-45 seconds travelling at up to 120 mph! At around 5,000 feet the instructor deploys the main canopy and you will begin your five minute scenic parachute descent, landing to the cheers of your friends and family.

Skydiving is largely unaffected by COVID-19 so why not give it a try.
