“We’re thrilled with the results of the first-time event,” said marathon chair Elizabeth Model.

“It’s been our vision for two years to welcome the world to Surrey and provide an event that really is about inclusivity and celebration of our diversity.”

More than 2,000 people came out to the Surrey World Music Marathon, Run Inn Half Marathon Prospera Relay and Mayor’s 5K.
