A lot of our senior and master athletes train in road running as well as track and cross country. We have club competitions that cover distances from 5km, 10km, HM and some of our runners also compete in marathons.

Our road running races vary throughout the year with some Surrey Road League races, individual entry races and some fun running too. We are a friendly group of mixed ability runners, working together to bring each other along.

Recently we have seen Walton athletes complete the London, Chicago, Brighton and Leeds marathons. The Elmbridge, Staines, Hampton Court and Ranelagh Harriers 10km. And, many, many Parkruns.

London Marathon

The Club qualifies for a single guaranteed entry for the London Marathon. Note that the usual entry fee must still be paid by the athlete and that the event rules require participants to be aged at least 18 on the day of the race.

Members will usually only be considered for the place if they have been active members of the club during the preceding 12 months and have sought a place for the London marathon through the public ballot (or good for age entry) and been rejected. The place will usually be allocated by ballot among eligible members who apply but the club reserves the right to allocate the place according to its own discretion.

Individuals may wish to participate in the London Marathon for their own reasons but in relation to the club’s place the successful member will be expected to participate in the race in a competitive fashion (according to their own ability, and subject always to injury or illness) and to train accordingly.

Interested members should contact the club secretary by 31st December.
