Challenging 5k & 10k races through the streets of Godalming and off road among the Surrey Hills, including the grounds of Charterhouse public school. Plus a great 1k Fun Run for the kids and families.

The Godalming Run was first established as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012 & to celebrate the London Olympics. Since then we have attracted thousands of entrants & have raised over £20,000. All the proceeds go to Sport Godalming, a registered charity, & will be used primarily to continue its support of local Godalming based athletes particularly those bidding for Olympic stardom.

    If using SAT NAV, please use the postcode GU7 1HR which will bring you to the Waverley Borough Council Car Park. Borough Road will be closed from 10am & during the event so please ensure you use the car parks available.

  • The 5k course is all run on roads. Road trainers are preferred for this race.

    The 10k course includes challenging off-road sections including short sections of steep hill climbs on off-road paths in & around Charterhouse. Please ensure your running shoes are suitable for on & off road terrain.

  • You are responsible for your own race warm up. We will not be providing a pre-event warm up for any of the races.

  • All runners will set off from the Godalming Bandstand in the Phillips Memorial Park, heading out into Borough Road with the fun runners doing a loop of "Charterhouse Green" before finishing back at the start point.

    The 5k & 10k routes head out along Borough Road to pick up the scenic River Wey riverside path before climbing into the grounds of Charterhouse School.

    All the 5k & 10k runners will experience beautiful views of Charterhouse School before going their separate ways. Whilst the 5k route heads back to the bandstand, the 10k route continues through the undulating woods surrounding the School & then heads back in to Godalming before starting the final climb up Westbrook Road & then looping back down to finish at the Bandstand.

    This is a running event, so no walkers. Roads will be reopened at 1.00pm. If you are still on the course at this point you are responsible for finding your own way back to the start/finish line.

    Godalming Run The Courses
  • The route within Charterhouse School & grounds will be marked by red flags which will be positioned on your right-hand side. Please ensure you stick close to these flags to ensure you remain on the correct route.

    Marshals will be position all over the course to help assist & support you with any problems or questions. If you have any issues on the day then please contact your nearest marshal (they will be wearing a hi-vis jacket so should be easy to spot).
