Hermes Running

Authentic, races run by runners for runners,  thats why we support these Hermes Running.

They gave us some notes to go with the blog, but the pictures kind of say it all too :) 

Reasons to run on some great trails at Hermes races?

We organise a number of scenic trail events in Surrey and within the Kent countryside. We’re a friendly bunch and welcome everyone, our races are suitable for novice runners and the more experienced veteran runners!

Some of the many reasons you will want to come to one of our events include:

  • We have a professionally trained team of medical support staff that are in attendance at every one of our organised events, the medics are managed by David Monck from The Response Group (TRG) as our runners heath and safety is the most important aspect of our race organisation and we take pride in providing the very best support to our runners.

  • 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.

  • We 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.

  • We award winner’s trophies to the top three male / female runners for each race distance at each of our respective races.

 

  • 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 race DJ plays at all the Thames Meander race series and entertains our runners throughout the day with an eclectic mix of genre to inspire and motivate 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.

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