Hermes Running

Running Events organised in Surrey and Kent

Organised Race Events in Surrey & Kent

All our races are geared up towards both the novice runner as well as the more experienced veteran runner and are based on the wealth of race experience we collectively have, having run over 600 marathons and ultra’s between us.

Our races offer runners the mandatory and essential support from our dedicated, professionally trained team of medics owned by David Monk from The Response Group, which we use for all our race events.

We also have a first class team of sports massage therapists at our events, this team is professionally managed by Louise Simpson, owner of Therapy 4 Fitness to ensure that runners have access to first class sports massage post race.

The chip timing is accurately done by professional David Kitcher from Swift Timing who does a superb job of maintaining and uploading all our runners’ times on the day and post-race to our website, the added advantage is that the race bibs contain the embedded race chip RFID timing tags which makes the process seamless for our runners.

Our race numbers are all colour coded with red for the marathon runners and blue for the half marathon enabling runners taking part and marshals alike to clearly distinguish which event competitors are participating in.

The race medals are all fully bespoke and customised to add enhanced value to our runners the achievements.

We award trophies to the top 3 male / female runners for each event.

Course signage is a combination of bespoke fixed signage and coloured ribbons which demarcate the course to ensure that they are clearly marked throughout enabling runners to merely run their race and enjoy the scenery.

Our experienced Scottish piper at our Thames Meander race series entertains our runners by piping in the lead up to the race start, then just before the race starts we normally have the “Chariots of Fire” theme to further inspire our runners

The overall race atmosphere is also enhanced with tasty food on all the checkpoints and scenic trail course settings, making it a memorable experience.

Recent Testimonials

My best every marathon so far after I have ran 15.
It was that good that I have already applied to run it again in March 2015.

Sunjay BhogalThames Meander March 2014

Thank you! I really loved it. It was a great work out and I’m glad it rained-made it much more fun. Perhaps make it an April run next year. Loved the experience, awards and the fact it was not commercialised. You guys did a great job!! I’ve already rated it on Runner’s World!
There was a gang of us who entered and weren’t sure of exact time…haven’t yet invested in Garmin.

Thanks again for everything!

MichelleBewl Water Marathon 2014

Beautiful riverside run with friendliest atmosphere.
The course is really lovely – the path never leaves the river Thames and is pretty all the way. The ground underfoot is mostly trail and although not muddy or slippery I definitely noticed the rough stony ground in places and would invest in some trail shoes for next time (I ran in road shoes this time, which were fine in the dry conditions).

PidgeThames Meander March 2014 Marathon

I’ve ran all 3 years of this and still enjoying it!
Pretty course, well organised by very experienced marathoners, good quality everything including checkpoints to help you round second lap!
