The Holly Run is an annual series of eight cross country races designed to suit all age groups for both club runners and fun runners!

"Good Old Fashioned Cross Country" - The Holly Run is an annual series of eight cross country races designed to suit all age groups for both club runners and fun runners!  Held under UK Athletic rules, on a Sunday just before Christmas, the Holly Run is completed wholly within Priory Park, Reigate, Surrey RH2.   Up hills, down steep down hills (except U11 and U13), cambers, parkland, woodland and everything nature can throw at you; this good old fashioned cross country route is why runners come back to join us year after year!

The perfect opportunity to combine keeping fit with Christmas shopping in our gorgeous town of Reigate (especially at our sponsor's 28 High Street store, SimplySports).  Just as last year we have the more energetic route for the women, covering 4 miles of this undulating course!
